Question

How can the VA say that a Disease had to manifest itself within a year of exposure? when they didnt even recognize the disease until the veteran was ETS,d and many years down the road to deal with it.

I was'nt even diagnosed with PN until I was given an exam for SSDI in 2009

Do you mean the chronic preumptives in 38 USC 1112?

They are different from AO presumtives.and discussed in this link.

I have only seen one solitary award for PN that the vet could prove manifested itself to a level of 10% within one year after service.

In his case, he did not need to reply on the AO regs for PN as secondary to DMII but was granted direct SC as the Mil had diagnosed him with PN in service.

It's a dumb rule-no doubt about that. If you don't have DMII chances of getting S/C as AO Presumptive are little above zero (I'm trying to be positive). I'm also suffering from PN in all four limbs & I know it's not fun.

You have to claim it as a secondary condition to your diabetes.

But, I don't have diabetes...Guess I could try secondary to PTSD, Prostate Cancer, IHD(CAD), Kidney disease, or other things too numerous to remember. My doctor told me "we don't know why 35% to 40% of people have PN." I told her I knew WHY, she just smiled & said nothing. I'm very much a survivor & this is just another bump in the road...does no good to keep telling myself "Why Me?" as my four old Grandson tells me all the time "Grandad it's just another day"

And the beat goes on

Look up PN and its causes on the web and see what fits you and take the info to your PCP and discuss if they feel it could be the reason.

Many medications we take can also lead to symptoms of PN I have been told. Also heart disease can limit circulation to your extremities and cause numbness similar to PN.

I am like you something caused it and you did not have it before you started getting the other presumptives.

Good Luck to you!

Did you have chemo/radiation treatments? Sometimes the cure comes with a hefty price.

Your Grandson tells it like it is...

Back in late 2004 had 43 radiation treatments for the Prostate Cancer. Best I can remember, the PN started in 2000 & was tested on lower limbs about that time. The hands have been problem since 2007. The radiation, without a doubt, is the best treatment I have ever had that was related to the VA. They sent my to outside hospital & stayed five nights a week in hotel, home on weekends.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
