What Are Nerve & Neurological Disorders?
Migraines and Headaches
Migraines can be incapacitating and the cause of missed work. In some instances, they can be so severe that they render an individual unemployable. Unfortunately, VA regulations limit the amount of scheduler compensation a veteran can receive for migraine headaches to 50%. This is unfortunate and often results in veterans not being adequately compensated for their conditions.
In instances where VA regulations limit compensation, veterans should consider applying for Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU). Our veteran disability lawyers can help you determine your next steps while seeking VA disability benefits for neurological and nerve disorders.
Neuropathy, Radiculopathy, Paresthesia, & Other Forms of Nerve Impairment
Veterans may receive VA disability compensation for conditions affecting the nervous system, and each body extremity can be separately compensated (e.g. left leg, right leg, left arm, right arm). In some instances, this compensation can be in addition to other conditions that may be causing the nerve impairment. For example, a veteran can receive compensation for degenerative disc disease (DDD) of the lower back and additionally be compensated for sciatic nerve problems in each leg. Common conditions such as sciatica, Bell’s palsy, and carpal tunnel syndrome are all forms of nerve impairment.
Most nerve-related conditions are considered chronic, presumptive conditions set forth under 38 CFR 3.309 since they constitute “organic diseases of the nervous system.” As such, presumptive service-connection may be warranted if you were diagnosed or experienced nerve-related symptoms within one year of separation of active duty service.
