I failed my navy medical this week, classed as "temporarily medically unfit" pending further investigation on 6 issues. 5 of these are actually historic, and I don't understand why the doctor wouldn't accept the letters I had for some of the issues (said only if the GP sends them it) or things like a historic injury which got better, obviously, because I can do things like squatting on one knee etc. Or like I was knocked out years ago and had a concussion, no scans were done at A&E, so what's my GP going to do for that today? Obviously I'm fine. There is one that I'm more worried about though, which is active, though it's a bit weird. I said once I went to see a physio for lower back pain, 5+ years ago where there was some manipulation of the lower vertebrae and I made it clear I don't have recurrent back pain and it was a historic issue. But the doctor said I also failed the "lower back flexion" portion of the test because I couldn't reach the floor bending forwards and that my back didn't move enough. He also wasn't happy about the bit where I had to lift one leg into the air lying down to see how far up it went. Would I get failed for not being able to reach the floor bending forwards even if there was no other problems with my lower back? I've never been able to do it, I have very tight hamstrings and muscles in general. No doctor / physio has ever suggested it was so serious to warrant a scan or hospital referral. Also how many grades are there out of interest? The doctor muttered "grade 2 " at some point as he compared results from his list.
