  1. I recently had a C&P back exam and while going over my medical records the physician saw there were to incidents involving my back. One was during service in 1994 and the other was related to a car accident in 2011. When they took x-rays, degenerative arthritis was diagnosed. I was granted four claims that involved degenerative arthritis for my shoulders and both ankles back in 2010. My question is will VA likely deny my back due to the last incident was the car accident or will they rate it as degenerative joint disease with limited range of motion?

  3. I need a little feedback. I just had a C&P exam for back strain and the doctor that was performing said he saw where there were two incidents with my back. One in 1994 while in the military and one auto accident in 2011. They did x-rays in 2011 and saw the I had degenerative joint disease in my lower back. I am already rated 20% for both shoulders with degenerative joint disease and right ankle and left ankle 10% each. I was in Desert Storm Desert Shield. Will they at least rate the degenerative joint disease in my back or try to tie it to the accident in 2011 since it was the most recent? Event thought it did not cause the disease. My range of motion sucks. I am currently at 60% total. Thanks, Garrett USN

I appealed the rating and I am just getting to a video conference. My claim was filed back in 2009. My pain level is at a 5 at all times and jumps to 10 when aggravate my shoulders with anything that I do. I am employed but aggravate my shoulders with doing my duties and everyday activities such as dressing myself and even taking showers. Any suggestions in how to proceed? Thanks in advance Garrett
