| | Veteran with Peripheral Neuropathy?
I just found this board on the internet and am glad I did. It seems very informative which is what I'm lokking for. I am a 90% servicee connected Vet who has reopened my case because disabilities have gotten worse. I currently am rated 40% for lumbosacral strain with spondylosis and degenerative disk diesease, residual phlebitus right leg 40%, 20% left lower radiculopathy, 40% right lower radiculopathy. I have filed because now I have scoliosis lower back,severe forminal stenosis L2-S1, sciatica both legs and I believe peripheral neuropathy both legs (because soles of both feet are numb). Have seen a neurologist who did EMG/NCS and EMG showed bilateral chronic radiculopathy involving L3-4, L4-5,L5-S1. Nerve conduction study were normal though. My question is can you have peripheral neuropathy but have it not show up on this test? After reading all the symptoms of it I have most of them and am confused as to why the NCS came up negative.
