Helping Veterans With Hypertension Throughout Georgia & Nationwide

Of all the many illnesses caused by Agent Orange, hypertension (also known as high blood pressure) is one that may soon become a presumptive condition. Studies have shown to determine the relationship between exposure to Agent Orange and hypertension.

While these studies support a connection, the Secretary has yet to find that hypertension is presumptively linked to Agent Orange exposure.

This does not mean that such a case will not be successful, however, additional supporting medical evidence is still currently needed to provide a link. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with hypertension and you feel that it is related to your military service, or exposure to Agent Orange, please contact an Atlanta Veterans disability attorney at our firm.

We have been helping disabled Veterans and individuals for 40 years to obtain their benefits. Having been involved in the system for this long, we know the frustration and heartbreak that you can experience, not to mention the injustice. We are here to help and we welcome your call.

What Are the Warning Signs of Hypertension?

Some people who have hypertension have no noticeable symptoms. Veterans should get regular medical exams to detect and treat hypertension early on. Many people with hypertension experience chronic headaches. Their vision can become indistinct or they may see double. Vertigo or a dizzy, spinning sensation are other possible signs of hypertension.

Signs of hypertension include:

  • Upset stomach
  • Fatigue
  • Heart palpitations

Hypertension should not be discounted as a serious health risk. Statistics show that some Veterans are more inclined towards hypertension due to their service in the military. If you or a loved one has signs of hypertension, you should see your physician and have a thorough medical examination as soon as possible. Our firm stands ready to help Veterans obtain their just Veterans disability. We have witnessed too much injustice in this area.

Can You Receive VA Compensation for Hypertension?

Yes, if you think that this condition is in any way related to your military service, you may be entitled to veteran compensation. Hypertension can lead to heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, damage to the eyes, severe leg pain, and aneurysms. It is a serious condition and has been known to affect Veterans who served multiple combat tours.
