I have chronic DDD which has been diagnosed at the VA as C4-C5-C6 for more than 40 years and it is still debilitating. I was wondering if other issues would be secondary to, and directly caused by, the Degenerative Disc disease that I got as a result of combat. Such things as chronic headaches, chronic left leg at rest pain, upper back pains (not spine) such as noise and pains when I move, etc.
