I filed a claim for an increase for my knee and shoulder as well as hypertension (high Blood Pressure) and PTSD. PTSD was granted and Hypertension denied because they said I didn’t have it in service, from what I have been reading Hypertension can be approved 2nd to PTSD. Since I was approved for PTSD I am wondering if I should file again for the hypertension (high Blood Pressure) or appeal the ruling on the denied claim? Any thoughts?
