In brief: Is it really asthma?

The military is very sensitive about asthma but there are many people who think they have asthma that don't really.
If interested in the military it would be good to discuss with a lung doctor how sure they are of the diagnosis. In mild cases a bronchoprovocation test with either methacholine or exercise could answer the question.

In brief: Unlikely

The military is very strict about not letting those with asthma enlist.
