    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

Primary Conditions.........secondary And Presumtives


nbll01

Question

Im fairly new to posting here and upon doing a lot of research on my claims a few things struck me. Seems like it would be a great idea to have a link dedicated to Primary Conditions and info on secondary or presumptives to the condition. I know for myself Having Rhinitis and thru researching all I could on the subject, it seems (and i could be wrong) but asthma from what I understand is a secondary presumtive to the Rhinitis? I may be off base, I just though that others that suffer from other conditions and ailments related to the primary condition could really benefit from knowing the info. There may be a lot of others that have no idea what conditions (primary) and secondary may be related or presumptive to one another.

I have no idea where your getting the information above from

but no, asthma is not necessarily a secondary to Rhinitis and is definitely

not presumptive for va purposes.

On the issue for SC as secondary, you would first need the Rhinitis SC'd

and then a medical professional to diagnose and connect (nexus) the asthma

to the Rhinitis, supported with full medical rationale.

3.309 Disease subject to presumptive service connection.

I have asthma and allergic rhinitis. I am rated seperately for both ( as well as sinusitis) and Asthma is not secondary to rhinitis.. I suggest you do some more research.. Factually, when when is present.. it is not uncommon to have the other but that does not make them secondary to each other.... they are normally stand alone diseases,....
