    I have a premature ventricular contraction that goes away with increased heart rate and does not need treatment. On the questionnaire, there are two options that I don't know what to put: heart trouble or murmur / palpitation or pounding heart. Do I put yes for either of these or do I just wait and see if they discover it because it has no effect on me?

    Not "just wait". It is your responsibility to accurately report your medical history. It is not for you to decide if it will affect you or others during your service.

    I would answer yes to both questions with the same response. Respond with the diagnosis, any required continuing treatment (none in your case) and the resolution of the condition.

    Be honest about your history but don't report symptoms like pounding heart unless you experience them!

    Sounds like "history of arrhythmia- be sure to report it is a symptomatic unless you do experience symptoms

    Asympomatic - (of a condition or a person) producing or showing no symptoms.

    Spell check works some of the time.

    Thank you for the replies. I specified about it in the follow up questions, so there shouldn't be confusion about it when I go in.

    OH, but there will be confusion! So just be prepared to provide the appropriate medical records and diagnosis info. Not all contracted DODMERB facilities are as thorough as others, in my experience.
