Many who come into this Forum often ask,

"What is involved in my C&P?"

Well, usually the person can call the number in the notice and ask what the C&P is to cover. Once known, the following could be of help. They are the worksheets showing what the examiner should be covering for that specific exam. I have also included at the bottom a couple of sites on Multiple Sclerosis (MS) that is not in the list, but might be of use to some.

Here is the link so if the list ever gets outdated, you can access the link for the latest: http://www.vba.va.go...exams/index.htm

Here is the list of the index (in link form) (with the addition of the MS note) to make it easy for you (I hope).

PREPARING FOR AN EXAM:

You might take your med records with you so you can answer any questions about previous info. It helped my hubby when I went with him with the records. Could answer without the doctor looking through and trying to find it.

Also take a list of concerns with you that might be pertinent so in the stress of the moment you won't have to try to think what you wanted to discuss or ask.

You might also call the appointment number and ask if you need to fast or if other lab work is necessary. Many times with my hubby those are set up elsewhere for a different time, usually tying in with going to see doctors.

You might want to take your copy of your medical records (if they can be carried) with you so you may refer to them if asked questions about previous exams.

You might want to make a list of items to mention or ask questions regarding this aspect of disability. Don't bother with other disabilities since the doctor will be focussed on the specific area of exam.

Make sure you take a list of all medications, including over the counter, since you will probably be asked.

Be sure to be prepared to mention how it is affecting your life, what you used to do as opposed to what you can now do. How is it affecting relationships? Stuff like that. If you are prepared in advance than if that type of question is brought up you can answer without a lot of stress since you have already had time to figure it out.

Don't forget any little details that might be pertinent such as bending over to tie shoes or trying to open a sealed jar (not that I know if they are pertinent, but just examples).

Papa brought to our attention an article found on the main page of this forum. It seems very pertinent and can be considered for whatever exam, not just PTSD.

Thanks, Papa, for mentioning.

My husband has had a 20% disability rating for his left arm and hand for over 10 years. Last year he had a huge stroke and almost died. He is age 72 and has been retired for many years. The stroke was at home, not service related. I care for him at home. He cannot speak, his whole right side of body is paralysed. After his stroke tho, his left arm/hand has gotten so bad, he can hardly even lift a spoon to eat meals. He cannot survive without help, period. He is totally helpless. Nest week, , we go in for his first rating of his left arm/hand, after his stroke suffered in april 2009. This is NOT the side that was paralysed, by the stroke. How tho, do they calculate a rating now, that he is totally helpless, cannot walk speak etc...but this stroke was not service realted? Stressed here to say the least. Thanks for your help

Just to let everyone know.. ..

I was informed on VBN that VA updated the links. The specific ones at this time, do not work.

I will be correcting that very soon.

Will let you know when the individual exams are working again.

In the meantime, as noted in the original post, here is the original VA site to access the exam worksheet:

Index of Disability Examination Worksheets (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs)

Anyway, just thought I would give a headsup.

It looks as if we have updated the original post to show the link changes. It went from htm? to pdf. Hopefully they will now work.
