    I was diagnosed with Scoliosis when i was 15 or 16 with a very minor degree. Nothing was done to correct it as its was under 10%. The plan of action was to come in once a year and get x-rayed to see if it got worse. Instead it got better. By the time I was 18, it was completely gone. I basically outgrew it. Do I mention that I was diagnosed with Scoliosis as I no longer have it. It is in my records that I no longer have it. Its also in my records that I once had it. What do I do?

    You answer the question honestly when it asks if you have a history of scoliosis. You do.

    History means you currently have the condition or you had the condition. Answer yes...

    They will probably ask for your records showing diagnosis and then the follow up so they will be able to see it isnt currently an issue.

    What number is scoliosis on Dodmerb form? We went through the form several times and didn't see scoliosis mentioned anywhere on the form. Do you need to supply information on conditions they don't specifically ask for?

    I believe there is a spine question. My son had to get an additional exam due to scoliosis.
