Confused With My Claim


Tao

Question

Hi everyone, I just received my decision on my service connected secondary condition wich is for my right upper c5,c6,c7 radiculopathy and carpal tunnel. My question is why did they only grant me a 10% for my CTS and nothing for the c5,c6,c7 radiculopathy. The Dr. at the VA concurrs with my private DR that my right arm suffers fron c5,c6,c7 Radiculopathy and carpal tunnel as a direct result of over use of the right hand since my left arm dislocates very easily. in the letter that i receved with the decision the RO says nothing about my c5,c6 omitts the c7 radiculopathy and writes only on the carpal tunel. Can anyone help me with this?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a result of radiculopathy. Any other ailment on the same arm or wrist may be considered pyramiding since it is effecting the same bodily segement.

What rating did they give gor your neck?
