@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

I have a back condition that I believe is caused by my falling due to SC knees. Told Dr. each time I visit my PC Dr. Also reported to Ortho Drs. In recent years I have had the steroid shots and it works for a while. I am currently on Oxycodone prescribed by my PC Dr. Also I have reported to the ER for pain shots in the back. My most recent C&P exam the Dr. noted the abnormal gait in her report. I filed another claim yesterday for the back being secondary to the SC knees. What do ya'll think I need besides the magic words from the C&P Dr.?

Thanks for any info and advice

Get copies of all of your records. Also, dig out your old service medical records and look for anything related to a back injury. It never hurts to pile on extra evidence in your favor. If you have happened to see a private physician for your back, you might want to ask them for an IMO linking everything together.

Hope you live in a region where you have liberal raters. Sometimes secondary claims go through. I had a back injury inservice with 40 yrs of records of continuing treatments and braces and was denied and went to BVA for almost 2 yrs to be remanded back to my VARO and was not developed yet. I had 2 IMO's/IME's and both knew/treated me within the yr of my discharge but a NP examiner screwed my claim. Hope all your exams are by Dr's and they use a gonimeter with their functional exams.

The note about the pain meds was just info as part of treatment for the back along with the steroid shots. It indicates that there is a problem or at least the PC Dr. thinks so.

But in reality I don't fully understand your question.
I realize that the meds represent treatment not cause etc. But it does indicate a problem. I was only giving all the info that I recalled. VA also issued me a Tens unit for my back.
