Default In Need Of Advice

I am a 17 year old Future Soldier, enlisted in the Army Reserve. I desperately need some advice regarding my problem:

I withheld information on my medical questionnaire(I lied...) at MEPS, specifically regarding two main problems:
-had to use an inhaler before exercise for a few months after a respiratory infection about 3 years ago; I no longer need it.
-Had ADHD as a kid and took medicine; I no longer have problems.

I felt extremely guilty about doing this, and do not want to be prosecuted for fraudulent entry. I e-mailed my recruiter a few weeks ago, telling him what I had done, and he had me come to the recruiting station and talk to the station commander. I informed the commander of what I had lied about, and he said I would be fine, that I could bring my medical records to him to put in my file only if I wanted to. He also said that the Army would need a court subpoena to get into my medical records, and that "they only know what you tell them." He said I would be fine, and not to worry about it.

I need to know, is he telling the truth, and also, should I get my medical records placed in my"file"?

If you have any advice or info, please respond to this post or email me at [email][/email]. thanks

Honestly, it's a shame you lied and sadly it may come back and bite you. If it does, you will have to deal with the consequences.

it only becomes an issue if it causes a problem. my civvie medical records didnt mean **** when i went in and still dont, minor things, dont bother. but if you pass out on a pt test and later say, oh yea, i had this and that, it CAN become an issue, sometimes it doesnt, i've seen it get over looked as a latent diagnosis of asthma. so dont worry.
