    You don’t need to go to a specialist unless directed to, or what you have is not clear cut. Best to gather all the evidence you have, do a sports diary and explain what happened. A letter from a specialist saying you are fit to join is worthless, what is more important is clear detail about what has happened, what caused it and how things affect you and clear timelines from you your GP and whoever was treating you at the time. Let the RN then decide if you are fit to join the RM.

    I just got back from the doctors 10 minutes ago and he told me my last case of back problems was in 2015. I had four cases close together but nothing since. He is going to write me a letter confirming this and provide the discharge letter from Sheffield children's hospital. I am also getting signed letters from my gym which I have been going to for the last 4 years as I have completed and won a strength competition for my age category and hit some impressive pr's from a young age. I am also getting a signed letter from my last job which was putting marquees up ( a lot of carrying heavy stuff) it was 8-12 hour days and sometimes 6 days a week but again no back problems. Hopefully this is a strong enough case.
