Thanks Allan

My knees have been giving out more frequently, I recently had knee x rays and an emg

The x rays found no problem with biomechanical issues. The emg test results are not very comprehensible to me. Since the biomechanical were ok then I am assuming it is a neurological disorder. My personal doctor has thought that from the beginning.

Just trying to find out which nerve it might be, the sciatic nerve or another. I have had sciatica pain for years, but I did not know that this nerve could make my knees give out.

Thanks again

Those emg test don't show alot and are not very effective.

I've had students take the test & say, nope nothing wrong there.

Only to get a reply from me, that I don't want to go into.

I experience the same problem. For me, I believe it's due to neurological damage. Spinal nerves or brain. Neither function well. I have no reflexes on testing.

It's the nerve that controls the motor drive through the knee.

It just drops off in mid step sometimes with me.

Sometimes I'll feel good enough when I get out of the car, so I leave my cane. Half way through walmart I'll need to ask my wife to go get it so I can get back to the car.

You may need to start using a cane to prevent a fall or keep from over working that nerve. With me it feels like the electric flow gets pinched off. Nothing I can do about it. I can take pain meds, but than I overwork the damaged nerve if I walk to much. It lays me up for a few days if I do.

Some days are better then others, so I pray for good days.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
