    About a year ago I messed up my lower back, doing something related to High Jumps in track. It's a long story. Anyway, it went away until about two weeks ago when it started bugging me again.

    I ended up getting put on pain medication and having x-rays done. My doctor just got the results and says that she can't see anything wrong from the x-rays. She is now suggesting physical therapy.

    So here is my question. Could I get DQ'd for this? I've read quite a bit on the DodMERB and the only thing I found was that chronic back pain was a disqualifier.

    And I know about Larry Mullen. I sent him an e-mail before and he said he couldn't answer my question because I'm not in the database or something of that sort. So could anyone here give me an answer?

    There is no one on this Forums, to include me, that can answer your question until DoDMERB sees your full medical history and the results of your medical exam.

    Until you are put in the database, anything from me would be pure speculation.

    Anything from anyone else would be a total guess based on your non-clinical provided information.

    So, you are asking an unanswerable question at this time
