Ask your doctor to write a short note that you can attach to the application. In the short note on his/her own letterhead, the doc should make one statement:”I have not diagnosed X as having any physical impairment, nor am I treating X for any physical impairment.”

That’s the only way I know to avoid the trap of being accused of lying on an application when a different person or different doc looks at the issue later on.
