Hi there. I am new to this timeline as far as posting anything, but have been watching and reading what other members experiences are. I am currently being MEBd because of severe Migraines, Prolactinoma, as well as Severe knee, back and joint inflammation and pain. My process this far as been at a snail's pace, but from what I've seen, that's the norm. Below is where I currently stand.

27 July 2018 -- DAWG Review
25 Aug 2018 -- DAWG Approval
27 Aug 2018 -- MEB Initiated/ Referred
19 Oct 2018 -- MEB interview packet submitted with PCM.
11 Dec 2018 -- Code 37 initiated and IMR updated.

Can anyone tell me what the next step would be from here. My Commander has informed me that they received a call and that it looked as I will be discharged, which I am happy about, considering the level of pain and sickness I am in?

Thank you.

Hello. I am actually in the final stages of everything. I opted into the Legacy Evaluation System (LDES) instead of IDES as i need to get home asap due to family health reasons. My packet was submitted to the AFPC, it came back two days later with an unfit determination. They placed me in TDRL for a retirement with 50% disability. They only found me unfit for migraines and didn't even consider my other conditions. I am filing with the VA disability on the 12th, as they told me I would qualify for a higher overall rating from VA.
