Dav Visit



Yesterday I went to the DAV to file additional paperwork for my NOD appeal for neck pain. They increased the rating from 0% to 10% which I rufse to accept. The problem I have is that since the award I've had PT, acupuncture, fascicular ablation with no improvement. I also recently (last month or so) developed worsening pain and radiation into forearms with rotation of neck side to side. Also have arthritis, and recently placed on morphine for pain control. I have scheduled an epidural steroid injection series next month. All documentation was provided of the above information. Does anyone think I will get an increase if so what might I get, any advice how to proceed?

Thank you,

I don't know how the VA rates for your problems but it sounds low to me and also the VA is well known for low balling initial claims.

Good Luck I am sure that you will get more help.
