If you have asthma this is the chart (you don't mention what you claimed):

Notice there are multiple "or" in each block. So your numbers alone do not equate to the final decision.

Thank you. It looks like I should be at 30% due to FEV-1/FVC of 70 and daily inhaler use. I should have used the official chart that you provided instead of the one listed at .militarydisabilitymadeeasy.com which lacked the "or".
