    Just found yor site, looks friendly and informative.

    I just finished my C&P exams last week for PTSD, Hearing loss, Tinituus and an upgrade on Sinusitis that I have at 10% currently.
    The PTSD is Service connected to Viet Nam by Documentation.

    The C&P's went very well. The Doc said I hit ALL the targets for PTSD. I never knew there was such a thing til the VA Clinic said I had it and started all this. I am not sure what to expect for a rating on PTSD.
    The Hearing part went well too. The Doc said I had 'Substantial Hearing Loss' which is common for long term Sinusitis.
    It all looks good for a higher rating, but, what maybe?
    I filed a FOIA for the C&P reports but have not recieved them yet.
    Is there anyway to guesstimate my new rating?
    I was thinking 50% for PTSD, 20% for Hearing and 20% for Sinusitus and 10% Tinitus. Probably a total of 70% with the VA fuzzy math? Is this a reasonable to assumtion?

    No it is just slow. I'm currently waiting on a new C & P evaluation for PTSD Combat related . My records show I was involved in a Combat as a FAC. I have only a partial memory and have lived with anxiety and depression all through my military and civilian career.

    I lost my case for anxiety and depression that ocured while on active duty I have been turned down twice and I'm done fighting them . The C & P Shrinks just call me delusional and it really didn't happen yet I have the medical records and documentation that prove I was indeed hospitalized. They keep saying it is not service related DUH ??? They say I was cured because I never went back to the hospital . ???? I figured I dodged a bullet. I am still haunted by this and I definately don't like being called DELUSIONAL !
