Bruxism and TMJ

Rate this question

Question

I want to file for bruxism and TMJ secondary to PTSD. PTSD is already rated but bruxism and TMJ aren't. Can I claim TMJ secondary to bruxism and PTSD if the bruxism isn't even rated yet, I want to use the bruxism as a kicker to help win the TMJ? Most people are saying it would be a guaranteed denial for the TMJ since the bruxism isn't even rated yet.

1. Should I file for bruxism secondary to PTSD then after it's awarded file for TMJ secondary to PTSD and bruxism to strengthen the claim?

2. Should I just file for bruxism and TMJ secondary to PTSD in one claim?

Thanks

Just file.  Let them figure out if it is secondary or not.  

I do normally do a Lay statement to tell them how it affects my other conditions if it does.  

I have submitted for other and they service connected them by themselves, where i thought they would be secondary.
