I've just received a letter from Glencorse telling me me I'm ineligible for military service on medical grounds. The reason they've cited is a so called history of asthma and wheezing, however the circumstances surrounding my case make me think this is a bit harsh. The crux of it is, I had asthma when I was three. For the next 21 years I had no breathing problems at all until July 2004 when I had a cough and tight chest. It was annoying more than anything, I used the usual over the counter medicines but they didn't seem to shift it and I work in a dusty warehouse that aggravated it a bit. I didn't think it was necessary to see my doctor, so I called in at end of surgery and spoke to the nurse. She seemed to think this could be asthma returning, triggered by the mild hay fever I sometimes get around July time so gave me a prescription for an inhaler. I thought she was over reacting and never even got the damn thing from the chemist, and sure enough within a few days and a few good coughs later my chest was fine. However on my medical form my GP wrote that I'd suffered from asthma in 2004, thus totally screwing up my chances of getting in the Army. My fitness is really good, I weight train every day, run over 3 miles daily, regularly play football and i do Muay Thai boxing every weekend, and not even a slight wheeze or problem. So taking all this into consideration, do you think i could appeal against this? The rejection letter states nothing about any appeal process, their only advice is to try again in 2008, but as I'm 26 now I've hardly got time on my side. Any help would be greatly appreciated cheers.
