Does anyone have Moderately Severe Peripheral Neuropathy?

As proven by EMG test result.

To what degree does it affect you and what rating did the VA give for that.

I have neuropathy non service connected and it gets worse. I suggest that you ask your Doc about gabapentin or Lyrica for neuropathy pain if it bothers you. I have had days when I could barely walk.

Peripheral Neuropathy is a real bitch. If you don't have it you couldn't appreciate how much pain that is involved. Some days you don't feel like walking or even getting out of bed. You just eat pills & keep going. I fear that it doesn't get any better, only worse. Luckily I have it only in the feet & not all way up leg or in hands. Guess just another gift from Agent Orange.
