Wow, that seems to be a very accelerated timeline. I started mine in July at Fort Bliss, and I am just now about to review and sign my comp. NARSUM, with very near the same diagnosis. Good luck with keeping it fast like this.

Hey I also have the same issues as you beside the meraigia paresthetica. How much was your rating for your other conditions I am curious to know what I may possibly get? Thanks and advance.

thanks mike, maybe the part where I have my congressman pushing my case helps ;), kwon, I havn't gotten my ratings yet I am waiting for them should be this week or next at the latest. I would recommend taking a look at the VASRD to see what your rating could be.

How did you get your congress person pushing yours? I'm curious because I would love to get my case moving. I started everything in June 2012 and have been waiting on my ratings for a month.

It was mainly a matter of me writing and calling my congressman and explaining to him how the hospital on base was messing up my paperwork and not making any progress, 1 week after that my doctor initiated the MEB, since then my case has been moving at a good speed thankfully.

Hopefully t doesn't cause them to be vindictive and try and screw you even more than they already do

Is it appropriate to ask your Dr if your eligible for the MEB? I have some MH issues ( adjustment disorder, anxiety, depression) just started my treatment and started the Med about a month ago. I have documented L5/S1 issue, C6/7 issue, had 3 knee surgeries plus other issues.

Just not sure what to push for. I have close to 18 years Active Duty, and over 31 years total service.

Mine didn't have a problem with it because of my injuries; definitely can't hurt to ask.
