Medical disqualification from combat pilot status

When: early 1990s

Where: real world

Terms searched: "pilot status" + "medical disqualification"

Query:

I have a USAF pilot, flying F-15s starting in roughly 1980.

I need to find a medical condition, something not detectable through a routine (pilot-grade) physical, which will disqualify them from flying combat but _not_ from civilian or non-combat military flying.

Any former pilots or aviation medical folks have a suggestion?
