I am asking for help from anyone that may know where I can find proof of my medical problem. I am a 44 year old male who was in the US Air Force for 14 years. While I was in, I injuried my back when I was 19 and started my first of many bouts with Sciatica. I injuried myself around 15 times while I was in the service. I got out and was given to the Dept of Veterans Affairs (VA) as a disabled Vet. I am currently rated at 70%. I have nerve damage in both legs, no knee or ankle ***k and several other wonderful things. In the past 3 years, I've developed numerous problems in my upper back including spasms, sharp shoulder and neck pain, and numbness and tingling in my arms. The VA has told me that there is NO link between the two. But I was told I have Degenerative Disk Disease and from what I've found so far, that is a cause for the connection to both problems. What I am asking is does anyone else have this problem or does anyone know a site where it shows that there is indeed a connection. I'm pleading for help from anyone who may be able to help me.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
