Most people posting on this medical clearance forum are concerned about getting rejected for some condition they have. I sort of want to do the opposite. There's a particular minor medical condition that prevents people from living in cold climates, but otherwise wouldn't compromise my fitness at all, and involves no medication or treatments. I don't actually have the condition (at least, I've never been diagnosed with it) but I don't want to go to a cold climate. If they try to send me to one I just won't go--I'd rather abandon the whole notion than go somewhere cold. (My top choice is a country with hot *and* cold regions, so I can't know in advance what I'll get.) But I'm a little leery of just telling them that. It'd be a lot better if there was an Official Medical Reason why I can't go to the cold region of that country. So what I'm wondering is, if I said I had this condition, do I need, like, a doctor's note or something, or can I get away with just saying that I have it? There's no way a doctor could tell I have it or don't have it with just an examination.
On the other hand, I'd prefer not to lie, but I'd like to know what type of response I'm likely to get if I tell them I won't to go to a cold place. Does anyone have any insight into that?
