  1. I've been wanting to put a claim in for arthritis that I've developed after my discharge, however, I was told I should wait after my appeal was completed or it could hold up the process. I have two remanded items left which my RO estimates will be completed in 6-9 months. What I'm wondering is, is it too late to file? I EASd back in September 2012. In my medical records from service I had complaints of knee and ankle instability. After a couple of years I started having a lot of pain in my feet, ankles, and knees. When I went to the doctor they said I had degenerative arthritis in my feet and ankles, and the beginning signs of arthritis in my knees. I've already been service connected for arthritis in my left shoulder and right thumb. I'm currently 28 years old. I've also started having the same pain in my right shoulder as my left. Is it too late to put in a claim for these? Would they even relate it to military service since I've been out for 5 years? I feel like I'd be too young to develop arthritis based on my age. Could I use the instability from my time in service as a link to my current arthritis? For my right shoulder, could I claim it secondary to my left shoulder (overuse due to compensating for left shoulder pain and weakness)? I realize it would be based on current medical evidence, medical evidence in service, and and nexus relating it, just wondering of likelihood of being approved.
