I get 20% for cervical spine degenerative joint disease, with 50% cervical headaches secondary to this, and upper left extremity radiculopathy at 20% secondary.
I am getting ready to claim the upper right extremity radiculopathy, with MRI results and epidural injections in support of this claim.
The MRI shows Intervertebral disc syndrome, which has caused the radiculopathy, which is a rated symptom per the CFR. My question is should I claim that also, or would that be considered the same as cervical spine degenerative disease which seems to be what has caused all of this?
Not really clear in the CFR.
