Recently I was diagnosed with an illness. I have been doing some research and it is most likely going to result in a medical retirement. In the notes of what my doctors he said that my symptoms started when I was a teenager, Which is wrong. I don't know how to quite go about things now

The Doctor is going to have to back that up with evidence. You made it through MEPS and their medical screening process and were good to go. Anything from that point until you depart the service is service related and does not matter when in a Doctors opinion symptoms started.

You will be assigned a lawyer in the MEB process. It is part of the procedure.

You will meet with a lawyer at least 2 times during the process.

During the IDES process you will have a MEB Legal Brief where you’ll meet with an Army Attorney. You can ask questions and theyll have some sort of presentation for you. As you go through the process, you will be afforded the opportunity to seek Legal Counsel shall you require it for whenever you get back your VA Findings Packet and Ratings. You do not need to use this, but it is highly recommended to ensure that your packet is squared away before you sign anything blindly. Remember, that is their job, to help and assist a Medboarding soldier.

Currently in the IDES process awaiting ratings from the IPEB.

I believe you are afforded the right to seek council/legal representation.
