appealing denial 3 years later but epecial

Question

Hi all! Long time no type. I was just wondering something.  About 3 years ago i was d3nied for a series of claims.   One being calcium deposits in my lungs. The denial was basically no treatment for issue first seen in militarY. I am now receiving treatment for calcium in my lungs that was first documemted in the military.  The pa did state that there was a nexus but no treatment.  I feel confident on refiling but need some advise on where to begin.  They did me so rottten on the initial that i want to b3 fully loaxed for this battle.  Ask all the questions you need.  Thanks in advance.

Using my PC now.  BErta i initially went in for inpingement syndrome on shoulders,  bad knees, and calcified granuloma for the claims.  All were slapped aside except for the lung issue.  As a matter of fact, Carlie even gave me a hint.  She said i would worry about the lung issue first.  Upon denial of the lung condition-- "There is no question of a nexus between the diagnosis and military sevice but there is no record of treatment. Therefore no rating can be applied."  I was so stupid and the examiner put it in plain letters.  Now i am being treated for breathing problems.  They seem to think either Lymphadenopathy or Asthma.  They ruled out sarcoidosis due to me not loosing weight.  I am currently on an inhaler for Preventil and Symbicort.  I have had 3 ct scans and the final one, in november, showed that my lymph nodes are inflamed where the clacified granuloma is.  Keep in mind no entrance exam caught this and it first cropped up in the military at FT. Hood.  The examiner didnt deny this.  They also gave me pneumonia which is also documented.  You guys say never give up.  I didnt and i think ihave made a chink in the VA armor.

If you are appealing a denial that is three years ago...you will need New and Material evidence to re-open the lung claim.

"There is no question of a nexus between the diagnosis and military sevice but there is no record of treatment. Therefore no rating can be applied." 

Did you have sufficient treatment records after you left service, and prior to this denial, that tyh VA did noy know of or they knew of and obtained them but failed to consider them.

You certainly have treatment records now:

"  Now i am being treated for breathing problems.  They seem to think either Lymphadenopathy or Asthma.  They ruled out sarcoidosis due to me not loosing weight. "

But you need a confirmed diagnosis that would fit into the nexus the VA has already confirmed.

What was the diagnosis the C & P examiner  gave you years ago?

VA does not connect medical dots.Even obvious ones.

They might not even have any C & P doctor with the expertise you need.

Have you ever been privately treated for these conditions?

Boy I sure miss Carlie too.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
