I have read in past postings that peripheral neuropathy and sciatica can both be rated under the category of the sciatic nerve because p/n is essentially still related to the sciatic nerve. Not positive that I am remembering it exactly as it was worded.
I have been dx’d with chronic lumbar degenerative joint and disc disease with secondary bilateral sciatica, secondary to a previous leg injury that has affected my spine.
I have also been dx’d with bilateral peripheral neuropathy from the middle of both calfs to feet, secondary to DM2. I was under the impression these would be two totally separate ratings, but a little confused since I read that. Just interested in how they will be handled. Thanks.
