Greetings and thank you for this information. I'm currently service connected for Upper and Lower Peripheral Neuropathy at 20%. I recently had a C&P for an increase rating because my PN has gotten worst. In addition to examining my upper and lower extremities, this examination concentrated mostly on my feet.  I believe my overall condition has gotten much worst so I'm looking for a higher rating.

Best Regards

You know a lot of DX for PN is subjective.  I got some high ratings for PN just based on an exam and me answering questions.  I got 40% for hands and feet.

My ratings were much higher than I thought. I was really filling on my DMII because I have to take insulin.  A lot of exams for PN are based on a doctor asking you if your feet feel numb and just tapping your elbow.  This is all very subjective.  I had just ten percent on my hands and feet and the VA raised it to 40% on all limbs.  That got me over 100% from 90%.

Greetings

I have been taking both slow and fast acting insulin since 2007 and my PN has still been going down hill. In addition to the constant tingling and pain in my hands and feet, walking and very little feeling in both feet have been my major problem lately.

Best Regards
