pctinc2001 posted a question in Eligibility - Veterans Compensation Benefit ClaimsI have a C&P on March 14, and wanted to know can i bring additional information to submit to the examiner to help with my claim? And If so do they suppose to take that into consideration?
I was at my PCP for routine services and he pointed out that a VA doc had said my SI joint pain was most likely caused by DDD, DJD, and low back issues. This doctor wrote this back in the spring. so, my question is this...is this strong enough to file for SI joint pain secondary to those issues? I've been SC for my low back since late 1998, which is currently rated at 40%. If a VA dr gave this opinion rationale, is it good enough to base my claim off it?
