My Neurosurgeon, and the Va's Neurosurgeon didn't get the same results in the EMG test that they performed, My Dr. said I have Neuropathy in my hands. The VA Dr. said I have carpel tunnel in my hands, not related to diabetes. We filed an appeal on March the third, 2011. I have heard it will take 2 years to hear back from the VA. Was an appeal the right way to go on this, or should we have done something else? How do they make their decision, when the Drs. do not agree on the medical problem? I would appreciate for someone to comment on my problem with the neuropathy in my hands. Thank you, Danny!!!
