Ankle discomfort 1 year after injury, re-sprained, MEB possible?
Ankle sprains heal, if you still hold problems, then it is something else besides a sprain. Perhaps things resembling tarsal tunnel syndrome, more likely an osteochrondral injury, approaching osteochondritis dessicans of the talus. If I were still on helpful duty, working in Orthopedics, I would direct a CT scan or MRI of your ankle, to look for such a problem. If it is related to your service, then the service will facilitate take assistance of it. A Medical Evaluation Board is preceeded by a PEB Physical evaluation Board, this is where they look at factor and job requirements within your MOS. If you can still function within those requirements, next you get issued a perm. profile. But earlier you jump on the "I'm disabled" articulated vehicle for a free ride in duration, seek out and go and get that anke examined by a competent Orthopedic/Podiatrist Doctor to look for those other causes.
Of course, its the administration. They can do what ever they want!
