yes! the VA knows about the SSDI, but why cant they just rate the PTSD and defer just the bladder? I am always confused as to what they are doing :( on my c&p for PTSD, the doctor did annotate that my PTSD has caused bladder problems, maybe the VARO needs clarification on that? I also asked the physician doing my other disability why no one has scheduled a C&P for my bladder problem since its related to my PTSD
Hopefully, you appealed the decision that stated "knee pain is not a diagnosis". The court has ruled the Veteran can "identify the benefit sought" by pointing to the applicable body part. There is no requirement that Veterans have an intimate knowledge of anatomy or medical diagnosis in order to receive benefits. That is why they have doctors and c and P exams. Not all Vets can even read. The Veteran need not understand, nor be able to name the applicable joint to get benefits.
