  1. I currently have 20% for arthritis in my upper back. When I use my arms in such a manner like swinging a hammer or holding them up above my head for long periods, it causes pain in my back. Do I have to have pain in my arm or joints in my arm to have a claim? Can I get this service-connected as a secondary disability?
  2. Hi everyone, I was recently diagnosed with patellofemoral pain syndrome in both of my knees and I strongly believe that it was caused by my bi-lateral pes planus, which is service connected. I have never filed a secondary claim before and hoping to get advice from those that have been successful with a secondary claim and see what pieces of evidence are recommended to have. Here is what I have so far: Current medical diagnosis - Bilateral Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome from private orthopedic doctor Knee and Lower Leg disability DBQ completed by private orthopedic doctor Currently service connected at 10% for bilateral pes planus (supplemental claim in progress for increase due to pronated gait and bunion) I am assuming I will also need to get a medical opinion from my private doctor to link the patellofemoral pain syndrome to my pes planus? Or would the VA schedule a C&P to make that determination? Thanks in advance for the assistance!
  3. I was diagnosed as needing a total knee replacement on my RIGHT knee when I was 34 or 35 years old. At that time, the docs told me I would have to wait until at least age 50 to get the surgery because "they only want to do it once." Fast forward to last April, when at 54, my surgery was finally done. Starting last November, I started having pain in my lower back on my left side. After xrays and an MRI, it was discovered that not only is my left leg was now 3/4" SHORTER than my surgically repaired leg, and that I have "pars defects" in my L2, and my L3 is "uncovered". No doctor YET has told me what either of those terms means. I was seen by a doc in Physical Therapy who told me that this was related to the length of time between diagnosis and surgery, but I find no mention of this in my medical records that I have access to thru the "blue button". I filed a claim for secondary condition, and I am scheduled to meet with a doctor in the pain management clinic in May, with my C & P exam the week after. What do I need to do to prove that these problems are related, and do I have to get either my pain doc or my primary care doc to include that in my medical records before I go to my claim exam?
  4. I tore both of my shoulders had surgery that is S/C already. At the time of me filing for VA claim I had no idea about secondary conditions (just learning bout it). Both Shoulders I have these Symptoms experience: Chronic PainPain Pain Diisorder (believe if I push or grab stuff) Cause Depression Cant Sleep (get well since suregery over 2 years ago) What is the best way to file the secondary injuries? Can I file for each shoulder all those symptoms I experience? Basically trying to understand the best way to file this so I dont get screwed by the VA.
