Raynaud Waiver

I am currently an AROTC cadet with a 3Y AD Scholarship. I am 99% sure I have Raynauds Syndrome, and understand that it's a DQ. I have not gotten it officially diagnosed yet though. How would you go about this? I don't want to just give up on the military but I don't want to get caught lying. If I do get it officially diagnosed, are there any chances of a medical waiver being approved? I just don't know what to do. Would they allow it depending on the job I am given?

You are not a doctor. It is best to get diagnosed and then deal with the what ifs. Go to a doc now and find out. If it is Raynauds, get a 2nd opinion for verification, preferably with a doc that has military experience. As I always say hope for the best but expect the worst, iows, hope for a waiver, but expect none.

Pima, she has already passed DODMERB and contracted, but he Army scholarship won't kick in until next fall semester. She currently an MS-I.

I agree that she should get diagnosed, but I think her Cadre may approach a waiver differently (more suppotive) being contracted.

Do you agree?
