nothing came through after the "and".....

I assume you are claiming arthritis as secondary to the ankle problem.

Do you already have a SC % for the ankle, even if it is "0" % SC?

Just about every claimed disability ( unless presumptive)

requires an inservice nexus... as proof of the disability beginning in service,with continuity and treatment up to the point of when the claim is filed.

The 2010 regulations are quite clear on the need for proving stressors,unless the veteran clearly fits into the "proximity to" and "fear of"hostile fire" situations, and often their DD214 reflects decorations/awards that are consistent to the regulation requirement above.

Although the new regs require for new claims, a VAMH diagnosis of PTSD, that diagnosis alone does not prove any service nexus or stressor, if the veteran does not fit into the regulation's criteria.

These regulations at in our PTSD forum and I will bump them up for you to read.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.
