    MEPS disqualified me for something that I don't have. On one of my medical records for my shoulder surgery says that I had a shellfish allergy and sport induced asthma. 

    They were just put down as precautions when I went to the doctor years ago by my paranoid father. I was never diagnosed with an allergy or sport induced asthma. I recently went to an allergy doctor and was tested. I was cleared by the doctor that I have no allergies and a note that says I was never allergic to shellfish. I was also tested for sport induced asthma and clearly states that I do not have it. There are no other records of sports induced asthma or a shellfish allergy, even with my family doctor. 

    My recruiter basically fell off the map and really doesn't know what to do at this point. Neither do I. 


    My concerns are if my possibility of joining the guard has been eliminated because of this? Should I try another recruiter? Is there anything I can do?

    Thank you

    Trying another recruiter is pointless. Your information is in the computer by SSN. You couldn't even try another branch without that information popping up.

    You need to get paperwork to your recruiter saying not now, not ever, have these medical issues been a thing. You've never had them. Did you say yes to those questions? If your recruiter is unsure, ask him to speak to the RIC (Recruiter in charge) he/she might have a way to get all of this looked at. Somewhere, someone checked a box saying my son had asthma. Never had, never diagnosed, never used an inhaler, we have no idea who thought that was in his medical record, it wasn't because it was a work of pure fiction, it didn't exist. Once it was discovered that it was 100% falsely entered under his name, it was wiped out and recruiting proceeded. But he never said it, I never said it, no doctor's reports ever said it. We don't know where it came from. If you speculated and said "My dad thought at one time I had ___________" then that is what you are going to have to prove is false.

    So I have went through this with a applicant before. What you need is a statement from your doctor with the test results showing you are not allergic and do not have asthma, and also a explanation as to how they gathered the results.
