DS just found out he is a 3 year AROTC winner. As a young child he suffered from breathing issues and was diagnosed with asthma. He also has allergies. He took Zyrtec for years for allergies but switched to singulair for his allergies a few years ago. He recently switched back to Zyrtec thinking it would be better to have singulair removed from his records as a current med. He has used an inhaler maybe a dozen times in the last 10 years and not for at least 3 years. I have not been able to determine the last time he filled a prescription for an inhaler...pharmacy would only provide records for the last 2 years. I believe the DODMERB question is diagnosed with asthma after the age of 13. What defines diagnosed? I really want to understand what the best way to handle this is. He has a regular doctors appointment soon. Should he request a spirometry test? Should we ask the doctor if they are willing to indicate no current signs of asthma? My feeling is that his issue is allergies. If he stops taking singulair or Zyrtec he gets a stuffy nose. No wheezing or coughing .. very different from when he was a small child and coughed constantly Any advice on specifics of how to answer the DODMERB questionnaire would be greatly appreciated, as well as any advice on what we should discuss with his doctor at his next visit.
