    What role was you going to apply for in the Royal Navy maybe do something similar? Normally it's for your own good and there isn't much point trying to join other armed forces because they will probably reject you. Can't you join the sea cadets?

    I don't know if you should remove the inhalers. Try the army because I've heard that they do accept people who have asthma. Just be careful full if you are going to remove the inhalers because you don't want to be having an asthma attack whilst on duty or anything. Read up on it first. I know someone who tried to join the RAF and they said that he couldn't do it because of is asthma. just think of what could triggers your asthma and make it a lot worse.

    I'm pretty sure you can't just stop taking your medication and remove an asthma diagnosis. You'll still have the diagnosis on your record if you don't take medication.

    yeah what I'm saying is that I've never had an asthma attack and I'm fine and it may just have been a viral infection

    If you haven't had any asthmatic symptoms for a few years go see you GP to have that written on your medical history.

    If you can prove that the asthma diagnosis was incorrect, you have a chance.

    If you can't get a doctor to agree that, then no.
