I received a random call from Topeka VA to schedule a reevaluation for PTSD. I checked my Ebenefits when I got home, there is an entirely new pending claim for PTSD as of May 4. I still have my rated disabilities since Feb 2012 as follows:
back strain- 10%
bursitis right hip-10%
panic disorder without agoraphobia- 70%
I did not start the new claim, but it is in the gathering evidence stage. I do see a psychiatrist for my medications and short psychotherapy sessions every 3 months through the VA. He has not stated any change in my diagnoses to me. I went through the notes my psych has put in and the only thing I have seen diagnoses wise is panic disorder with agoraphobia r/o PTSD in his notes. What could be the reason for all this in my claim? Is it an attempt to decrease my percentage, change my diagnoses, or just add to my claims? This will be the only other C&P exam I have had since my initial C&P exam.
Thank you for your help.
