    Hello guys hope you're all doing well. I have one quick question. Will it be a problem to enlist if i've had asthma inthe past. The last attack I had was when I was 10 years old and lived in Cuba. I havent had an attack ever since. I played on the varsity soccer team my sophomore, junior and senior year and never had a problem. I do not depend on an inhaler nor pills. Will it be a problem ? 

    Thank you.

    Hello, I just went through MEPS with similar circumstances. I had to bring all documentation of when I was being treated for asthma and when I stopped receiving treatment. If you stopped all treatments before the age of 12 you should be ok ( must have documentation). Your doctor at MEPS will then go over your paper work with you and determine if they will need to do additional testing. Not sure what they exact test is, but I think it is the whole run on the treadmill with the mask test. Basically get all the medical paperwork you can find (with doctors signatures) and if you were still being treated after the age of 12 then you will be Disqualified. Just be honest and work with your recruiter, worked for me anyways. Good luck!!

    I had a similar problem without documentation.  I had to do a PFT test.  Essentially you will spend all day to go blow in a tube that measures your lung capacity, they will then give you an inhaler, my first since I was 6, and have you do the test again. The test itself will take no more that 20 min, but you will be there all day.  Gotta love MEPS
