Im in the process of appeal for a higher rating for PTSD. In my research I have come accross hard evidence from one Joseph A Boscarino, PhD,MPH Senior Scientist, The New York of Academy of Medicine. In a nut shell he is saying those with PTSD were more likly to have autoimmunediseases, and in particular rheunatoid arthritis, psoriasis and several other problems. I have both arthritis and psoriasis. The psoriasis as stableized, but the arthritis in my hands,elbows, shoulders, and kness is slowly inching foward. If you go to the VHPA web site they have a link to this report.
