Can you connect the Gout to an accident or operation that you had while on AD?
Remember; VA disability compensation is for Service Connected disabilities.

I tried deciphering the VA chart...but i couldn't really figure it all out. Anyone know if this is something i can get some sort of disability rating on? I know ill be taking meds for the gout for the rest of my life..and not too sure what my foot will be feeling like.


Thanks in advance
