I am very confused about this whole DoDMerb thing and getting a waiver. I took my medical and eye exams a while back and they went fine- I am pretty healthy, no asthma, no broken bones ever etc. But, I kept hearing "be completely honest" so I was honest in the questions. I put down that I do get dizzy when I exercise without properly eating before, like ANY normal person!! It's true, I'll either puke or get light headed and have to sit if I haven't eaten enough before serious exercise. Easily correctable, right? Yes. I just eat right and have to pay attention to eat at a specific time before I know I will work out. I have a weak stomach, but so? I am a pretty strong candidate for the USNA, I am a girl, 32 act, helicopter private pilot. Just checked my status on the DoDMerb website, and they say "Date letter sent - Disqualification" (they sent the letter today actually, so I have not received any info from the mail). Here's the description: D212.30 Miscellaneous condition of the nervous system Recurrent pre-syncope episodes post-exercise within the preceding 2 years. I've never actually felt my heart so far below my stomach until reading that. So does the fact that I get dizzy on an empty stomach crush my dreams of being a navy pilot? Do I have to give up the Naval Academy? And my back up plan of NROTC? The doctor asked me if I've ever fainted because of this. My answer? No. So will I be receiving a waiver or am I doomed to a life of being a civilian? Please help. Thank you so much for reading and answering this question.
