I have tried numerous times to get my disability status upgraded to include PTSD, bipolar disorder, ongoing major depressive disorder and panic attacks for which I have been diagnosed, and no one will help me. What do I need to do?



A1:  You have to have these conditions diagnosed. Then the conditions must be linked to your service, however, since these are all psychiatric conditions, you will only be compensated for the most severe condition. This falls under the category of pyramiding since these are all basically the same conditions.  (AP)  12/5/16
