  1. Greetings How would my service connected cervical spine be rated? THERE IS REVERSAL OR NORMAL LORDOTIC CURVATURE OF CERVICAL SPINE WHICH MAY BE RELATED TO MUSCLE SPASM OR TRAUMA. HYPERTROPHIC CHANGES ARE SEEN IN THE CERVICAL SPINE. THERE IS NARROWING OF THE DISC SPACES BETWEEN C3 AND C5 AND POSTERIOR SPUR FORMATION IN MULTIPLE LEVELS. THESE FINDINGS INDICATE SPONDYLOSIS. PERIVERTEBRAL SOFT TISSUES ARE UNREMARKABLE Best Regards Chiefhouse00
  2. Greetings! I've attached a redacted copy of my 26 Jun 2023 VA Claim for my service connected cervical spine condition which denied for an effective early date. I have some concerns about this VA investigation, evidence, and final decision of my claim. This review included the October 28, 1999 Detroit Veterans Affairs Medical Center treatment records and concluded that this end-of-service C&P X-ray only showed findings of spondylosis or degenerative changes, and it was taken three months after my discharged...it was never included in the C&P exam. Please review and let me know what I can do to get this decision Granted. Best Regards Chiefhouse00 Cervical Spine Decision 26 Jun 2023 Redacted.pdf

  12. Greetings How is Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy rated? Best Regards Chiefhouse00
  13. Greetings and thank you for this information. I'm currently service connected for Upper and Lower Peripheral Neuropathy at 20%. I recently had a C&P for an increase rating because my PN has gotten worst. In addition to examining my upper and lower extremities, this examination concentrated mostly on my feet. I believe my overall condition has gotten much worst so I'm looking for a higher rating. Best Regards Chiefhouse00
