Good Day all,

I am currently in the Air Force with less than two years left until separation (signed for 6 years).
I was recently referred off base to a rheumatologist and found out I have fibromyalgia. I've been suffering for the past couple years but all they did was send me to physical therapy. I am now working with my doctor to start a MEB. Is there enough time considering the time I have left in the military vs starting the MEB process?

If you are admitted to the program, your end date is put on hold.

The biggest issue with Fibromyalgia is making sure it is diagnosed by a Rheumatologist. Sounds like you already have that done. I hope things turn out in your favor.

Yes. They won't release you until your process is through.
