Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. :cry: I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED AS HAVING MULTI - LEVEL DISC DEGENERATION CONFIRMED BY AN MRI SCAN (2005). i AM P7HONNI. i HAVE BEEN TO THE DOC SO MANY TIMES FOR PAIN RELIEF THAT IM ON ANTI DEPRESANTS FOR PAIN WHICH TOTTALLY KNOCKS ME OUT. I CANT WORK WHEN TAKING THESE. I HAVE SEEN A MED BOARD DOC FOR MED CLASSIFICATION LAST YEAR AND APPARENTLY IM NOT QUITE DISABLED ENOUGH FOR MED DISCHARGE. IM 40 THIS YEAR WITH A LITTLE OVER 2 YEARS TO GO AND IN AN INF REG.

    CAN ANYONE ADVISE ON A ROUTE TO TAKE .................IM AT THE END OF MY TETHER !!!

  2. You say you were classified last year....Then get a reclass' for this year!! You are in obvious distress and need to see another specialist. After 20 years Service you deserve better treatment.

    Is there any chance of you going Private?.. the treatment is far superior than the usual roller coaster system that is "looking after"you.
     
  3. thanks for that.........when i was classified P7HONNI, i was given a green biff chit with permanent written on it and was told to laminate it.

    i also failed to mention that i have attented a 3 week rehab course but with no improvement. :cry:
     
  4. Ask for military occ med opinion, there's plenty of em.

    Chronic pain consult also likely to be useful - don't know if there's anyone in uniform in the specialty but referral via your MDHU should help.

    Most importantly, go back to your RMO and tell them the current arrangement's not working.
     
  5. thanks for that...i went to MO (civvy one in MRS) and ive been reffered to a orthapedic surgeon ???............................dunno wot will happen.

    had occ med chat last year and apperently im not quite "diabled enough" to be med discharged........that was then...........im alot worse now !!!!????
