Hey, first post onto the forums and I was wondering if anyone can help me.
I have been trying to enlist in the navy since May of this year. My case went past MEPS and into BUMED where I was denied for a combination of a recent concussion and Ehlors Danlos (sp?). Since my rejection I have seen a geneticist who's specialty is Ehlors Danlos. She basically looked at me for 15 minutes, laughed, and said I was misdiagnosed as a child. As far as my concussion goes, I have had a sports medicine specialist follow me from day of injury (back in January) to being cleared of all symptoms; she even took the time to note that it won't affect me in any way in the future.
I have been trying to resubmit these new medical findings since August. My recruiter says that he can't help me because I was denied and that it isn't a simple process since BUMED is involved. I was basically left in the dark with no direction and nothing medically wrong with me to boot. Can anyone on here tell me for sure how to get my papers reevaluated, preferably someone that wouldn't mind explaining it to my recruiter? Even if you can just give me some contact information of someone to talk to that MIGHT know what to do that would be great.
