I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some of the questions I have. I have asthma but it’s not as bad as some people. I use my rescue inhalor every so often. Mostly before physical excercise. And sometimes when my seasonal allergies get bad.
I have heard through recruiters/enlisted people that you can join the military with asthma as long as at the time you join you are not using any prescriptions drugs or inhalors, and that you can complete all the basic training excercises. I’m more looking into Navy/Air force being that I’ve heard there Basic training is less intense then the others. If anyone could give me some further insight as to what there basic training is like i’d appreciate that.
I’ve been told to try to get off my rescue inhalor in order to get in. So what would be the best way to go about that? Is there any certain workout routine that would be beneficial? Any running routines that would help strengthen my lungs for the purpose I’m wanting wich is to get off the rescue inhalor/military. Are there any kinds of prescription drugs that I can take to help strengthen my lungs. The reason I ask that is once when I had bronchittis they gave me an oral steroid to strengthen my lungs. Again I am asking because I’m seeking the best information.
Any help or advice I can get would be very helpfull. And I appreciate it all as well. Thanks!
