It certainly supports a PTSD claim.

Did you have any back injuries or problems noted in your SMRs?

Borrowed from elsewhere.

"What does the Axis mean on my C&P report?

The AXIS I through AXIS V are your evaluation.

The most important is AXIS I being the diagnosis, or what was found wrong,
and AXIS V is the prognosis, or how it looks for future progress.

Also you will find it says, "Competent for VA purposes," don't worry about that it's a good thing. It just means that you don't need to be locked up against your will, or "committed" as the doctors prefer saying.

AXIS 1: MAJOR PSYCHIATRIC ILLNESSES, INCLUDING SUBSTANCE ABUSE.

AXIS 2: PERSONALITY DISORDERS/FEATURES


AXIS 3: PHYSICAL PROBLEMS (MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS-AS OPPOSED TO A PSYCH DIAGNOSIS)




AXIS 4: PSYCHOSOCIAL STRESSORS (homeless, unemployment, marital conflict, etc.)




AXIS 5: GLOBAL ASSESSMENT of FUNCTIONING SCALE,
expressed as: none, mild, moderate, severe and then it'll have numbers listed to represent, eye movement, or non-eye contact, tearful, fearful, and these kinds of assessments."
