I found a 2010 PN BVA decision that coded the PN as:

Lower extremity PN 8521

Upper extremity PN 8512

I sure didn't mean to appear to question the info John posted.

We see PN a lot that is rated under the 2 DCs I posted.

However I went to the Schedule of ratings that he posted and it seems there can be many causes of nerve impingement or disability which may or may not be PN but service connectable as secondary to something else. As within this BVA decision.

http://www4.va.gov/vetapp10/files2/1017670.txt

If the diagnosis is clearly PN the VA will probably use one or both of the above codes I posted but the info John gave us certainly caused me to think about how severe a nerve iompingement could be and if claimed as PN but it isnt PN, then VA could deny the PN claim and overlook that the vet has a secondary nerve impingement that is causing more disability.

Berta,

My PN is rated under 8520 for lower and 8516 for upper. Seems they have a different code for each nerve or group of nerves involved.
