What Does This Mean

Rate this question



Temporary or intermittent flare ups of a condition are not considered aggravation, unless the underlying condition, as contrasted by symptoms, has gotten worse.

Pretty much it means that if you have a disease or condition that only bothers you once in a while, you probably are not going to be compensated for it. In other words if you have "swimmers ear", where you get infections only when you go swimming, but you only go swimming once a year or less, then you are probably not going to be compensated for it. A condition has to be "chronic" to be compensable. You dont get compensated for a cold..it goes away in a week or so and then you probably have no symptoms after that.

Asking this for another vet..

What happens if someone has a condition which is treated with daily medication to remain asymptomatic, but if they do not take the medication the condition quickly returns?
