    Provider got the wrong information

    I just saw the provider last week because my unit heard a false rumor of me having cancer. I went in and requested a MRI to prove I don’t and they asked why this rumor started. I mentioned that in the past I was told I may have cancer but it wasn’t proven and I didn’t show any symptoms after...

    Fit or unfit?

    How often do PEBs find soldiers fit for duty. I’ve been reading a lot about how they qualify a person to be fit or unfit. But In reality do they keep more people in or do they deem them unfit majority of the time?

    How do additional disabilities get added to PEB

    So I am more than likely going to be referred to a PEB here soon for chronic migraines. With that said, it looks like if my case gets sent to a PEB they will evaluate more than just what I’m being boarded for. Is this correct? I also have sleep apnea (with CPAP), depression, and anxiety. What is...

    Can you be referred to a PEB because of adverse side effects of meds?

    I posted a slightly longer version of this elsewhere, but thought the length might have scared people off. Basically my migraine meds might work, but I gained a lot of weight and can’t meet pt standards due to shortness of breath with even the slightest it of running. Am I still looking at a PEB?
