    I've already done all my remedials and done all my talking with Larry Mullen (Thank you again, I know you'll be reading this!)- I was just wondering if anyone had any success in getting a waiver for my condition or if I should give up hope.

    I have mild, exercise induced asthma (I just did a round of methacholine challinge testing for USMMA, and was reactive on the second dose). This is for sure. Is there any chance?

    To be honest, there's no one on these FORUMS, certainly to include me, that have any educated opinion on your chances of obtaining a waiver because of the myriad of factors involved...so, as long as you know that with your question pending...:thumb:

    I had the same problem over the summer. I was DQ'ed for reactive airway disease/ asthma. I did the whole remedial process and took the methacholine challenge. I did not react to any of them and received a waiver. So it is possible to get one but like what Mr. Mullen said, each case is different and no one can give you a complete answer. I hope this helps. Sorry again for the DQ.
