  1. I requested connection for psoriatic arthritis of the right hand, left wrist, and both feet. In addition to these joints the RO requested a C&P exam of shoulder, hip, elbow, wrist, knee, and ankle. I have no idea why they did this but it is possibly beneficial to me. I'll attach this part from my c-file at the bottom on this post. The VA only decided on the four claimed joints. The other joints that the VA put in the C&P request were never evaluated or referenced in anyway. This includes no mention in rating decision letter or during the C&P. Fast forward to 2015 I report for a VA requested future exam for the four SC joints. I made the complaint of joint pain in 11 joints to include the joints stated above from the 2009 C&P. These were recorded in the results as pain. In addition to the documentation in the 2015 exam, they VA acknowledged the additional joint pain and suggested I contact them if I wished to claim these. I stupidly did not see this until recently. Would I be able to get these joints connected and EED back dated to 2009 or 2015 based on an inferred issue and that no decision was made on the other joints? Again the VA is the one that requested the additional joints to be evaluated in 2009 and not me. Then they were never addressed. I am interested in this because I have been finding information on claims being considered open if the VA never renders a decision. While they rarely miss a veteran claim they often miss inferred issues. This seems like a pretty obvious inferred miss to me. The VA specifically requested the additional joints. Might be a stretch but this would be significant retro.
