When a Veteran starts considering whether or not to file a VA Disability Claim, there are a lot of questions that he or she tends to ask. Over the last 10 years, the following are the 14 most common basic questions I am asked about when it comes to filing Veterans Affairs Disability Claims.

Ok! so........i went to my VSO this morning and we reviewed all the necessary C&P's and current stuff and she called the VARO....this is what she told me.

the VARO was essentially looking for a nexus(medical opinion) for the PTSD/MST which they got and has been uploaded....they rated the bladder as secondary and don't need a nexus for the secondary condition.....the PA stated in her notes that it is more than likely (50% greater probability ) that the bladder is a comorbid to the PTSD, which in VA language is apparently the same thing as secondary condition.  Everything has been uploaded and they are now waiting for the DRO.  I feel a lot better about things now, but you never know.  So........i am hopeful that its 100%.....if not, the VSO said we will do the NOD immediately about whatever i disagree with, but they believe it will be 100%......because i am already on SSDI and it is because of military service stuff. Now we wait! thanks for all the concern.

Floridanurse, I too hope that you receive the best possible outcome. I am truly sorry to hear about another service member who had to go through what so many of us have had to endure, and also what I had to endure, MST. You are a survivor though and your strength will pull you through. Again, the best of luck to you !
