    MEB vs chpater 5-17

    they give me 2 weeks of temporary profile everytime. Once you get permanent profile, i think that makes you a candidate of MEB. i have tear in my disc, lack of fluid and bulging out disc and more. If you haven't talked about MEB with your PA, you should and see what he says.
