I am about to be given an exam for the MEB. My PCM is going to be doing it from my understanding because I am in Hawaii and there are no Navy Specialist for RA here. My PCM is a NP and didn't believe me at first that something was wrong with me until I pushed the issue and she agreed to order some tests. Now that she has seen all the meds I am on and that I have only gotten worse she is being really sweet and trying to help me (I think). What can I expect from this exam? She really hurt me last time she was checking my hands. My Army specialist doesn't think I should be given an MEB nor does my flight doctor. I on then other hand totally understand why my PCM is starting this and I know I haven't been completly upfront with how much pain I am in. I have a pretty high pain tolerance and with 2 little kids have no choice but to force myself to push through and get things done. I am not sure how thigs are going to go for me but I wouldn't be surprised if I am found unfit due to the meds and my limited ability to PT (as in can't right now). Thanks for any info you have.
