Hey guys, Im new on here, awesome site though. Got a question does anyone know the chances of me passing a medical with gastric reflux in my medical history?i dont need prescribed medication for it anymore and i hardly get it,all it does is give me heartburn/indigestion anyway, gaviscon and rennie do the trick for me but if i did pass would i be able to take them to training with me

its where your stomach produces a little bit too much acid and it causes heartburn more than usual, like i said i still can do all my sports and very rarely get it anymore but can control it with a simple antacid now if it does

Doesn't sound like it would affect your ability to join. That said however its up to the Doctor at your medical to decide if its a problem, dont worry about it until you see the Doctor.

Best of luck with you application
