Hey everyone, I have a couple questions. I saw a recruiter today and everything seems to be ok with joining but medical. For a background I am 24 years old, 6 feet tall, 200lbs. I have a 4 year degree and zero arrests ever and no history of alcohol or drug abuse. And i took the little pretest for the abvsad at the recruiter and got a 61. (I have used a calculator for years so not having one was not good, that really hurt haha.)
Now my problems are that 1) I had a pilonidal cyst in 2002. Recruiter says I need to get my records. I looked up the DQ facts and it seems that I im ok for qualifying because it was so long ago and its healed with no problems ever. All tests normal.
2) I had a supposed Supraventricular Tachychardia in June of 2010. According to the DQ facts I should be ok with qualifying because it happened over two years ago and im not on meds for it and never had a recurrence. I have never been on meds for it and all my tests and ekg were normal during the hospital stay. I didn't even need to go to the regular doctor after for a checkup. Doctor told me it was a supposed SVT because their was actually no proof it happened besides a high heartbeat when i was in the ambulance but i was working out/lifting wights/running when it happened so they could not be sure.
So should I go get a doctor to write something that I am healthy concerning these 2 things or just give the recruiter the records that I can get from the hospitals?
Is there anything anybody can tell me about their experience with either thing if they have had it and enlisting?
I talked to 2 recruiters about these problems today and they seemed like it won't be too much of a problem I just need to get as much records as possible from the hospital and if anything i will need to see an army doctor to get cleared. Do you all concur or will i have some trouble getting cleared?
