Hi I applied for PTSD compensation with VA after coming back from Iraq and just got a letter from them today saying that they denied my claim and explained that i have anxiety disorder and not PTSD and therefore I do not qualify for compensation. However after applying for compensation and seeking help at the VA clinic I was told that they were backed up for several months ahead and I would have to wait or I could participate in a PTSD study that VA was conducting and for participation I would be provided help as needed without any wait time. So ofcourse I agreed to do the study because I wanted to get some help. The study was held at the VA hospital where I went through a bunch of tests and they determined that I have PTSD and suggested that I attend classes that they offer which teach people to deal with this type of thing. So I did. So VA doctors diagnosed me with PTSD, but my PTSD claim was denied? That makes no sense to me. I mean, I spend a year in a combat zone, I provided them a letter with stressors, which they asked for, and on top of that a VA doctor diagnosed me with PTSD. What should I do? If anyone knows anything about these things I would apreciate any kind of input.
