I had a C and P exam for anxiety. There are conflicting notes.
3. Occupational and social impairment ————————————- a. Which of the following best summarizes the Veteran’s level of occupational and social impairment with regards to all mental diagnoses? (Check only one) [X] A mental condition has been formally diagnosed, but symptoms are not severe enough either to interfere with occupational and social functioning or to require continuous medication b. For the indicated occupational and social impairment, is it possible to differentiate which impairment is caused by each mental disorder? [ ] Yes [ ] No [X] Not Applicable (N/A) c. If a diagnosis of TBI exists, is it possible to differentiate which occupational and social impairment indicated above is caused by the TBI? [ ] Yes [ ] No [X] Not Applicable (N/A)
But then say:
3. Symptoms ———– For VA rating purposes, check all symptoms that actively apply to the Veteran’s diagnoses: [X] Anxiety [X] Near-continuous panic or depression affecting the ability to function independently, appropriately and effectively [X] Difficulty in adapting to stressful circumstances, including work or a worklike setting
Does this seem odd?
