Sure vets are claiming SA as secondary to almost everything, the VA will look at your medical evidence and make a decision on your claim.

Please don't hold your breathe.  But you can try like hundreds of others.  At the end of the day.... if the medical records and test support the connection, they will connect.  BUT...as Cavmedic eludes....weight is a HUGE factor in NO.
