I have started to develop peripheral edema in my lower legs.
I am service connected for Hypertension (HBP) and also for heart disease (LVH).
Could or is, these maladies or the “medications” for same causing the peripheral edema?
Also, I am service connected for Achilles Tendinitis and I just read this, “Leg edema may also be caused by others factors such as Achilles tendon …”
Can it be claimed? Maybe I will claim it secondary to all three (or, four if I include medications) and let them sort it out.
Is there a rating?
I have been to my PCP and my VA Clinic doc recently, but have been waiting to go to my Cardiologist on the 12th. I will be pointing my lower legs out to him to see if he will tell me what’s going on.
On Thursday, I had a C&P for something else, but the examiner put it in my notes that I have it, as I did point it out to her. So there is that.
