Hello good people of hadit.... I have never claimed muscle weakness as one of my ailments from the military..........I had left knee surgery back in 2003 while in service for patellar tendon ACL repair. Since this surgery, my left quad has been weak (atrophy) and measureably smaller than my right quad. I have walked differently (gait) since that time with a now natural limp because of the quad not fully restoring. I have suffered from achilles tendonitis, back pains, plantar fasciitus, flat(ter) feet (unclaimed pre-existingly mild condition upon entry but can be considered severe), and various ankle pains and discomfort and also went to numerous physical therapy session for each. My question is 1)what can I claim as it deals with atrophy to the left quad 2)what will I need for my claim as evidence... can I use physical therapy notes that highlight the atrophy and gait 3)if I claim flat feet and it was a pre-existing condition and the doctor and physical therapist said it was worse than mild, should I claim it? Thanks for your feed back in advance
I was wondering if anybody w/ ptsd has had a neurologist or ANY medical professional tell them that their ptsd is visible on images taken of the brain. Like mri, pet scan, cat scan, etc. If so did they indicate a degree of damage per year, or ANY span of time. Thats a good start, but Ive some other questions mebbe.. Thanks a bunch. Mystic
