    Ok, I have my interview on the 4th followed by my medical on the 12th Dec followed swiftly with selection weekend on the 13th. As you can see I don't have long between the two. I still don't have my medical questionnaire. I was just wondering what exactly are the questions where so that I can go ahead an get the info I need and if I need to go get notes from my Dr it wont be a problem.

    Many Thanks

    Is poor circulation to the hands and feet a bar to entry?

    Depends on the reason - it can be an issue as it leaves the individual more susceptible to cold-climate injuries.

    Andy, you've came through once again! cheers for that mate! We should just call this forum "SEE ANDY"

    another question you might be able to answer. As a child I was investigated for asthma, turned out I didn't have it but whilst going through this as a precaution they issued me with an inhaler. As I never had asthma will I need to disclose this? Also bit personal but had circumcision done a couple years back will I need to disclose that?

    If you were prescribed an inhaler there must have been something "not right" at the time, so it has to be declared, whether used or unused. It'll mean you'll need to undertake a peak flow diary to confirm you no longer have the condition & the AFCO medical examiner will write to your GP to confirm the dates of the last prescription & the type of inhaler.

    Circumcision, not a problem assuming there were no complications.

    Ok I done a peak flow diary back then which confirmed I never had it, that is in my medical records, would it help to get a copy of all this so he doesn't need to write to my Dr?

    It may well help, but my guess is they will still need confirmation of the type(s) of inhaler prescribed & the date of the last prescription. I'd be inclined to expect to have to keep and complete a four week peak flow diary - in the event it's not required, just take it as a bonus.

    Hello guys, I am in the first phase of testing. I have told them and the regular navy that I have urinary incontinence, they are making a decision. Do you think they will bar me?

    Hard to say for sure, but the odds aren't looking good I'm afraid.

    When you say, Had or have asthma. Mine never asked that. I had astmha as a young child and last had treatment for it 5 years ago. But on my medical questionnaire, it never said 'Had' only 'Do you have asthma'. So i ticked no as i dont currently have asthma but did many years ago. I thought it wasnt clear, but as it hasnt directly said the past. Am i ok to tick 'No' for asthma?

    No

    If you look at the head of the column (highlighted in Red on the pdf medical questionnaire document uploaded below) you will see it clearly "Do you have or have you ever suffered with any of the following:"

    There are three related asthma questions relating to "Do you have or have you ever suffered with..."

    One asks: Asthma or wheeze
    (including symptoms of nocturnal cough or exercise wheeze since the age of 16)

    Two asks : Used an inhaler (continuously or intermittently) for the control of asthma/wheeze for more than eight weeks in the past 5 years.

    Three asks: Been prescribed steroid tablets of Syrup for Asthma or wheeze Since the age of 5 years.

    In your case, question one must clearly be answered "Yes", regardless of whether you have had symptoms of nocturnal cough or exercise wheeze since the age of 16.

    Why for question one do I answer yes even though I haven't had symptoms since 16, last symptoms was when I was 12. I answered the second question and explained in detail it was five years ago and for very mild use. I answered question one directly as no as I havent had symptoms since 16. I've already sealed the envelope, how would I even explain that answer? Thanks .

    If it helps, I'll type slower...it is asking you whether you have ever had asthma. Period.

    This is regardless of the bracketed section which asks you to include symptoms which may have occured more recently.
