  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

I have miserable back pain when sitting. Does anyone know why this occurs? If I stand up the pain resolves mostly. When I sit and when I sleep for a while I wake up with pain in the lower back. Long car trips are impossible. I have had MRI and it really just shows minor disc problems, but nothing that would justify this type of pain. The doctors at the VA don't believe me, of course.

John:

Sorry to hear that. I used to have pain in lower back when I got up from a sitting position. The pain would be intense for a dew minutes and than work itself our. As it happened I became aware it happened when I would sit leaning slightly forward position sort of akin to many who sit on toilet. I quit doing that and have not had the problem any more.

I think it is more like a kink in the back and of course the VA is not interested in mundane things like helping a Veteran stay out of pain.

Hope that you get better.

Minor disc bulges can be a real pain.

Sitting is one of the worse things for back pain. I reconfigured my area to be ergonomic. Everything from proper lumbar support to setting everything the keyboard and monitor height up perfectly. It helps some, but I try not to sit for more than an hour.

I find sleeping on my side with a pillow between my knees makes a big difference.

Try 4 disc bulge in the neck my left had works just sometimes and not. Been waiting for 2 weeks to see a doctor been to the VA ER room here in Portland 2 times due to pain being so bad that I can not sleep and vomit due to the pain. Going it to Shock. The ER Doctor did X ray and a Cat scan, MRI till the figured out what was going on. I am not going bitch about the Care I received it was free. If I had to pay OSH for this care I would be paying till I die.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
