It would help to know what links you can't open, and other than that, what help you are looking for.

The hadit search feature at top pf this page  can help:

https://community.hadit.com/search/?q=Sjogrens&quick=1

These are a few posts on sjogrens, and we also have had Lupus topics.

Agent orange has specific presumptives, searchable here in the AO forum.

Also this link to the BVA will have 378 Sjogrens claims decisisions.

https://www.index.va.gov/search/va/bva_search.jsp?QT=sjogrens&EW=&AT=&ET=&RPP=10&DB=2019&DB=2018&DB=2017&DB=2016&DB=2015&DB=2014&DB=2013&DB=2012&DB=2011&DB=2010&DB=2009&DB=2008&DB=2007&DB=2006&DB=2005&DB=2004&DB=2003&DB=2002&DB=2001&DB=2000&DB=1999&DB=1998&DB=1997&DB=1996&DB=1995&DB=1994&DB=1993&DB=1992

It is always best to read the most recent ones.

BVA decisions reveal why sjogrens was denied or why it was granted.

We have at least one o more  sjogrens SC vets here somewhere- and also a successful Lupus claim. 

 Transverse Myelitis,  can be found in decisions at the BVA site.

There are 36 transverse myelitis claims at BVA in the 2018, 2019 list here 

https://www.index.va.gov/search/va/bva_search.jsp?QT=Transverse+Myelitis&EW=&AT=&ET=&RPP=10&DB=2019&DB=2018

and probably many more.

It would be difficult to associate Sjogens to AO.

You could search the BVA to see if there are any AO claims regarding your specific disabilities,but Agent Orange claims are explained in detail in our AO forum here and very few have succeeded in claims for SC with a disability that is  not on the presumptive AO list.

That often takes a very strong Independent medical opinion, that could be costly....as well as proof of exposure to AO.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    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
