  1. Rated 10% (SC) painful joints/Arthritis. When filed for increase unaware, but last week! diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Explains why my pain is severe. I need information. A condition caused or worsened by a SC condition is rated secondary to the SC condition. I don't know how to address acquiring after service a condition that aggravates existing SC condition. Am I stuck at 10% rating for painful joints or can I get compensation for the disabling pain either for effects on arthritis or as a secondary diagnosis? BTW I have SC conditions (IBD,PTSD,Migraines) which are common with fibromyalgia,... still getting Fibromyalgia SC is unlikely. Fibromyalgia alone is painful, but co-existing with arthritis is unbearable. Is there precedent to allow increase above 10% or allow secondary diagnosis? ANY SUGGESTIONS!!!!! I'm in constant pain. My claim is in reviewing evidence and will be decided soon. Any good advice is appreciated. Thank You
  2. Just wanted to post on here and let you all know where I am at with my claim now. I currently was awarded 100% for hypothyroidism/bradycardia and 50% for depression. I was denied joint pain, which really is ridiculous, since half of my service medical record states chronic joint pain in it. So I have a lawyer helping with all this. My biggest concern is getting the medication that I need for my condition, out of pocket costs range from $2500 to $3000, and I just don't have the money to pay for that. I am currently getting samples from the my local doc office ( I have an amazing none VA doc.) and have put in a request through the company to receive assistance with the cost, so I will be covered for at least a year. I will be happy when all this is done, but understand that it is a long waiting game at this point. Thank you for all the support I have received so far and will receive in the future.
