    How do additional disabilities get added to PEB

    So I am more than likely going to be referred to a PEB here soon for chronic migraines.

I also have sleep apnea (with CPAP), depression, and anxiety. What is...

    Can you be referred to a PEB because of adverse side effects of meds?

    I posted a slightly longer version of this elsewhere, but thought the length might have scared people off. Basically my migraine meds might work, but I gained a lot of weight and can’t meet pt standards due to shortness of breath with even the slightest it of running. Am I still looking at a PEB?
