    Pain Management

    at SAMMC they work with massage therapy, cupping, chiropractors, and yoga for some issues. I was seeing them early on but they are always booked way in advanced and hard to get appointments that work with my Units work schedule

    Als and combat vets

    I went through all the testing for ALS. EMG and the nerve conduction test are not a fun experience. Turns out I have Benign fasciculation syndrome (BFS). Muscles all over body are constantly visibly twitching. I was scared it was ALS or MS but all the rest were negative.

    Pain Management

    On the Air Force side, the docs have avoided offering any opioids in my experience. Good ol Motrin and physical therapy is the cure for any issue.

    Rebuttal Response

    I am currently awaiting the IPEB's findings currently; however, after I received my C&P results back, I requested an IMR. The doctor that reviewed my case sided with me and said Fibromyalgia should have been added to the MEB conditions. My PEBLO just sent me an email with a response from the...

    PTSD and TBI

    Also the last sentence on the TBI form states This service member does suffer from ongoing symptoms of residuals of TBI that mildly affect day to day functioning. Not sure how that is rated. I looked at disability made easy. This was the highest box checked [X]Three or more subjective...
