Pre existing conditions are going to affect a claim, yes.  If you went through a traumatic event in service, and had stressors prior to service, and they are not capable of separating the symptoms, then they must include all of the symptoms as SC.  They also can assign percentages if they can identify and separate symptoms.  Dealing with psychiatric symptoms, I would guess that it would be extremely difficult for them to say which symptom was caused by each separate event.

check out MsTbirds video attorney John Hill and his associate explains this very well,



but I don't think VA will accept anything that happen before military for compensations claims?

it needs to happen to you while in the military and medial records to prove it happen  ,PTSD stressors are not needed if you were in combat or a hostile enemy terrority  they do the presumption of service that a trauma occurred , watch that video Ms Tbird posted.

 and be sure to listen to the 7 criteria parts to meet PTSD by the VA
