Very soon after that, I received a phone call from the VA and within a year of interviews..etc..began receiving a 30% disability for PTS and tinnitus, later upgraded to 70%.
So, thank you for standing up for us.

For my shoulder and back I take powered ginger. It's a natural anti-inflammatory, is cheap at the health food stores, and as far as I can tell, has no side effects. It takes a couple of weeks to get into your system, and has really helped me with the pain. I mix a quarter tea spoon into hot tea once a day.
My wife is going to try the ginger thing you mentioned. She has DDD in L5 and L4. Hopefully it helps!

(By the way, they don't prescribe Viagra for PTS!)
