I wasn't worried at all before, but reading this DODMERB forum has me all worried. The reason is because I think I have flat feet. I do have a visible arch when my feet are lifted in the air, but when I am standing barefoot on a hard floor, my arch lightly touches the floor. This has never been diagnosed by a doctor. I don't use shoe inserts. And I am a varsity lettered athlete (crosscountry, track) and extremely athletic. This has never caused me a problem or pain in my life, or limited my sports, which is why I've never been to a doctor for this. So I suspect now I may be DQ'ed by DODMERB. What would be my best course? Should I wait and go though the MEPS and see if they think I really have flat feet and wait to be DQ'ed or not? And if I am DQ'ed, then go to the foot doctor for inserts and try to request a waiver? Or should I go to the foot doctor now, right away, before the MEPS to see if I really have pes planus, get the inserts, in which case I will definitely be DQ'ed by DODMERB, and will then apply for a waiver? So the question is, should I wait or should I pre-emptively go to a foot doctor? Is there any common test I can try myself to see if I might have pes planus or not? Someone mentioned duckwalking on another forum. How does that work and what do I look for? What is the likelihood of being granted a waiver for pes planus if it has never caused me a problem before? Would this be one of those waivers that are automatically applied for by DODMERB? Again, I don't know if I really have pes planus or not, but it's one of those things I've always wondered about my feet.
