    You need to get proper medical advice not rely on a chat room.

    If you search on the various service careers sites you should find details of the medical requirments and particularly those conditions which mean you will not meet the minimum medical standard.

    You can go into an AFCO and ask them to check out your conditions.

    I think you would be well served by getting proper advice sometime soon as the various conditions sound like a significant problem for forces entry.

    To be certain you will have to check with an AFCO, however, any history of asthma and hay fever will almost certainly preclude you from any aircrew role and severe anaphylaxis requiring you to carry an epipen will almost certainly preclude any service in the Armed Forces.

    I'll say it while the others stick with safe responses - your collection of allergies and medical issues would preclude you from serving.

    Read the PDF linked to on that page. Backs up, from the RAF side, what TPD said.
