I had a question regarding external rhabdomyolysis. July of 09 I was put in the hospital for 2 days for external rhabdomyolysis due to dehydration. I had ran a road race and the next day had some aches and pains that lasted to long so I got checked out and they discovered the external rhabdo... I took some IV fluids and was monitored for the two days. I was discharged with no long term effects and was cleared to run and workout as I pleased (just to stay hydrated) I am currently 23 years old and have been a full time firefighter for 3 years and completing college online. I am currently in Iraq working on an Army base as a firefighter contractor/when my contract ends in May I hope to enlist in the Guard. However I do not know how my episode will effect my ability to get in. Does anyone have any experience of this and trying to enlist? Any info would be great. Like I said.. no long term effects and was cleared to full duty and activities after 2 days. Thanks for any info..
