C&P For Knee and BAck Condition Secondary to Flat Feet


Jynnette

Question

Good afternoon Ms. Berta,

Im having all these problems now with my  feet, back pain, and knees, back when I had my  MEPS, my initial diagnosis was Mild and Asymptomatic Pes Planus.  During my military career I continued to have feet issues "which is documented in my military records, aswell as my VA doctors currently have documented that they feel it was most likely due to my Mild and Asymptomatic Pes Planus/Flat Feet -knee, back and foot doctors.  My question is back in July 2011 you spoke to another veteran about a BVA case that you remembered with these issues - this was your comment " Many  years ago I posted a BVA decision here for a vet who started out with SC flat feet, which progressively weakened his knees, caused chronic back pain ,severe hip pain, and more to the decision , but he was finally awarded TDIU for all that" , 

Could you direct me to that BVA case please or any cases on this situation.  Although I am not looking for TDIU at this time,  due to me working it  helps me with my other disabilities that I receive compensation for already,  I am trying to connect my flat feet to my weakened knees, caused chronic back pain ,severe hip pain.  Any advise Ms. Berta I would appreciate it.  I will be submitting my documentation in the next couple of weeks, I am currently at 80%.

 

Thank you again,

Jynnette

Many claims popped up at the BVA:

I used TDIU in the search and then pes planus, knees, hips, back and there is good rating info in them....

  • 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
