I was dignosis with an upper resp. disease chronic (sarcardosis), while serving on active duty and retired 2002. Since then I have been hosp. twice for resp failure, my private doctor sent the VA a letter classifying my condition COPD. The claim was still denied. Then I have a MRI report, again from my service record while serving on active duty, C5-6 and C5-7 buldging. They denied my claim and the BVA remanded the file back to the VBA. I was poorly misrepresented by the DAV in Newark, NJ. I had to take another C& P and the doctor wrote my syptoms have worsten . When I call the 800 number, they keep saying the claim is with a supervisor pending authorzation, I assume denial again. Please Help!!!

Sorry but at this point it should get an answer fairly soon. If I were you I would start preparing to have to fight but I would be optimistic.

Good Luck

Can you give us the BVA case docket number and citation number? BVA cases are public (no personal info) at the VA web site and if we can read the case we might be able to help more.

or could you possibly scan the remand and attach it here?

Sorry to hear about the sacroidosis.

As for a bulging disk, they can come and go. In order for a condition to become service connected, you must have incurred a disability in service. Then you must show chronicity which means that condition must still be present now. So if you still have the disk problem now, then they should service connect it. Have you had any recent tests done to confirm it?

That may be your hold up.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
