Recently went to a private Neurologist and was diagnosed with PTSD. Can anyone tell me what to expect from VA ? I am waiting on my military medical records before I make some Claims . If any one has been down this road I would like to know what to expect. I have read some of the stories on this and other sites and it seems I got a hard battle with the VA to look for.

This is a list of worksheets that the VA will use to evaluate and rate your disability. Get your service records and your claim together, see your service officer of choice and let them represent you.

Go to the VA, private docs messed me up worse....the VA is the place to go. It took me a year to get my disablity, but it finally happened, that was 13 years ago.
