CAD no. Blood pressure, possibly related to CAD, might be possible, ask a physician. Phlebitius (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002098/) maybe.

There also may be a relationship to some causes of CAD. Again, ask a physician, preferably an endocrinologist.

Personally, I believe a cardiologist or a vascular surgeon would be preferable to an endocrinologist.

Thanks for your response. I was just thinking that it wasn't untill just after my heart issue (stent in 99) that I began to notice the vein in my left leg starting to swell and I thought it my be connected. My VSO said I should open a claim for it as a secondary .

Thanks again

This might have nothing to do with condition, but the medicine I'm taking could cause my blood pressure to rise and cause heart problem's. It also can cause Vericose veins which should be secondary to the PC and DMII.

I don't need to file, but as you know VA they have their on rules

Who knows!

Thanks for the feedback

I picked up my C&P file from the VA today and the nurse who conducted the interview wrote that my vericose veins were not related to my CAD. Not surprised! I guess I could get an opion from an outside source just to be sure that its not connected. I just found it strange that it happened after i received my stent and started taking the meds on a daily basis.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    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.

    Examples:

    • 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.

    Note:

    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.

    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
