I have 1 year and four months until my retirement date. When I was younger I had back issues and the senior NCOs would never let us go to the doctor when we injured ourselves. they would say suck it up buttercup. For the past ten years my back has been bothering me more and more each day. Most of the time I just dealt with the daily pain because it was livable or the few times I went to the doctor about they would just give me 800mg of Motrin that wouldn’t help at all. So know here I am close to my 20 and my back has gotten worse and instead of a dull pain that I can manage it now shooting down my leg. I’m terrified that if I go to the doctor and get seen properly they will try to medically retire me to save money over the long run. Is this a possiblity?
