    Recently, I have been having very minor shoulder pain. I believe it is from lifting and overstretching it, so I'm giving myself time to heal. It's been a few days and the symptoms haven't changed too much. I've come so far and worked so hard for this, and I don't want to do anything to mess it up... would visiting a doctor be an issue?

    No. I-Day is months away, and it's probably minor, as you say.

    If you really do have an issue, it's better to know now than to be turned back on I-Day or sent home during Plebe Summer.

    Go see the doctor. Visiting your doctor is not an issue. Somedays it days more that a few days. You can seriously lay of the weights and just do body exercises. There are some good books out there demonstrating various kinds. Your morning PT will be body exercises. Herschel Walker is a big fan of bodyweight exercises. Look him up. Run, run, run.

    But before you do more, go get checked just to play it safe.

    This brings up a good question though. What needs to be reported before I Day and what doesn't? If one where to sprain an ankle or pull a hamstring, what is protocal?

    My DS received a letter from the USNA today that said he was denied a waiver. He had a retina tear in a sports accident. It was lazer repaired to 100%. Is there any other option available to us for a USNA appointment.
