I am having the pain of all pains with sciatic nerve problems. With the bilateral rating, all neuropathy is rated at 88% and are all secondary to DMII.
While I am rated at 100% P& T, this condition has taken a course of its own. There are some days that I can't even walk across the room. I can't
put weight on this side of the body. It's gotten so bad that the VA put me on predisone (40 mg daily) to combat the pain. If surgery is needed to correct
this issue, will they rate it as a secondary conditionto DMII or a medical issue that stands alone?? Does a secondary condition qualify for smc or
If I sound confused, I am. I thank you as always for your kindness and considerations.
