I am a US Army vet. During my many years in the Army, I had a lot of problems with my knee, due to military service. After, I was discharged, the Veterans Hosptial declared me disabled at less than 10% This level does not give me a fincinal payment. I do however, recieve all my medical care for free. A year ago, I went back to the VA as my knee has given me additional problems. I am not able to run, cannot walk more than a mile, it hurts when I walk up more than two flights of steps, or down more than 4 flights, ect. In fact, after I left the Dr office, my knee was in extreme pain, beacuse the Doc had twisted it so much. However, the doctor would not increase my disablity. Yesterday, I was informally talking to a VA counsler about my knee. (He owns a copy center store, that he runs on the weekends) While, at the store, I was standing at the counter, I let out a big OWEWWWWWWW, as my knee "fell out of joint" The off-duty counsler told me to go back to the VA. I gave him my history. He told me when I go back for a re-evual, I should walk up to the 8th floor, and then back down to the second floor. That way, my knee will be in extreme pain. Currently, I do very little if any physical activities, beacuse of the pain my knee does give me. In fact, that is one reason I drive taxi, there is very little excerise. In the Army, I was in charge of supply wharehouses, including much lifting, ect. What should I do?
