    Well let me tell you about something I experience.
    Sometimes my vision blurs and my forehead warms up, this only lasts a few seconds at most. This may be linked to my blood pressure 140/80. Of course this may be nothing at all, but it's better to be safe than sorry.
    Also I have some minor acne, does this inhibit my examination success as I read someone having problems with it before.

    Thank you

    I'm a Junior going for the class of 2015, so I have not started my application. Do you still want me to give you the info?

    AVT,

    I think this is health issue that needs dealt with to make you well...not about whether it will inhibit your opportunities in the military. Do your parents know of these symptoms? Finding out why you have them should be their primary concern. BP of 140/80 for a junior in high school is high. Fix your health...not to get into the academy, but to prolong your life. IMO academy attendance, medical status for military etc should be a secondary issue.

    Sadly, my parents don't think this is very serious at all. The sensation is not painful, but I am just curious what it is. In track and field last year my forehead often burned up quickly and I threw up after a couple 400s, but I believe I was out of shape because I was injured 80% of the season.
