@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

joe,
I edited out your IME due to the personally identifying info.

Make yourself a copy - white out (redact) your personally
identifying info
then rescan and re-upload it - into your post.

First, I have read the report. It was clear, concise and detailed. Second, I believe this doctor has in fact given a correct diagnosis and relating it to combat. I am no doctor nor do I practice any type of medicine but I will say that while I was reading through the lines of this report that you have been incorrectly diagnosed by the C&P examiner. Anxiety usually has a extra addon that comes with it and its called panic attacks. Panic attacks is a way your body is telling you there is something wrong so it goes into panic mode. From there your mind creates thoughts of fear issue. Usually once a person has an understanding of why his/her body has panicked then Anxiety kicks in. As somebody who has and has had first hand experience in these two things, I didn't see these "signs" in this report. My first conclusion as I was reading what you experienced and what you are experiencing is PTSD. Why didn't the C&P Examiner give this diagnosis is beyond me and I am NOT a doctor but I know a few people who have it. Anxiety and PTSD are very different, trust me on this. They are only related because they are both considered "mental" but Anxiety can either by psychological or physiological meaning the body is creating it and there is something wrong. PTSD on the other hand is more of an emotional abnormality. By reading this report you have all the signs of PTDS related to combat. I thought the doctor did an excellent job in evaluating your issue and gave a really good opinion. I thought it was excellent...

I won't talk about the diagnosis specifically because I'm not a Pyschologist or Physchiatrist, so I feel I am not qualified. For VA rating purposes - all mental illnesses fall under the same rating table.

After comparing your IME to the VA's Initial Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Disability Benefits Questionnaire that they use in C&P's, I would say that the MD that prepared your report covered all but one (I might have missed it but I did not see Competency: Is the veteran capable of managing his or her financial affairs addressed in the IME) of the categories (Evidence Review, Current Diagnoses, Stressors, History etc) that are on the VA Form.

Hopefully with this latest report they will rate you favorably. Best wishes. Semper Fi.

My mistake you are correct. With PTSD one can obtain one or more anxiety disorders....I guess since I done have PTSD I was thinking it was different.
