I apologize in advance for the lengthy post, but I am searching high and low for answers in what my chances could possibly be in receiving a medical waiver for an asthma diagnosis on January 20, 2014. I was 17 years old when my diagnosis took place, and I am currently 19. I know that DoDMERB is black and white when it comes to an asthma diagnosis after the age of 13. I am already expecting to receive a medical DQ. I am trying to stay hopeful that I will be able to receive a medical waiver for my asthma. Here is my situation I know that I do not currently nor have I ever actually had asthma. My doctor, whom is just my family doctor, not a pulmonologist, prescribed an albuterol inhaler for some slight tightness in my chest that I felt during soccer practice and decided to tell my doctor about during my appointment to get a flu shot. In retrospect, the slight tightness I was feeling was from a mild cold. Point blank, I NEVER had to rely on the inhaler but was told to take a puff before my soccer practices to see if it helped. I used it probably 3 times max to see if it would help any and it did not help my performance at all. I was just as active without the inhaler than with it. If anything, I felt worse after taking the inhaler puff because it made my arms feel tingly. I have already completed a year of AFROTC and have gotten through all my PT sessions with no problems at all. My last and best FA score was a 93.5. I have already completed a spirometry and sent it into DoDMERB. I did so well on it that the people in the doctors office had a hard time interpreting the results after I was done, then realized my results were way better than average for a 19 year old 136 lb girl. Is there any chance that I could get a medical waiver with the information I just provided? I have a methacholine challenge test scheduled for Aug 11th, 2016 to prove I do not have asthma. Hopefully results are in my favor. If I DO pass this methacholine challenge test, will that help my situation? Also, I want to be a nurse in the Air Force. Will my major have some sort of pull in whether or not I receive a waiver or not? I know nurses are needed in the Air Force so I'm not sure if DoDMERB would consider that. I am also a decent student, making deans list for 2 semesters straight and keeping an "A" in my aerospace class for ROTC. any advice is greatly appreciated, thankyou!
