  1. Few years ago i used to suffer from migranes, never had anytime off for them but did get prescribed medication for them, havent suffered from them for about 6 months, and if i did its only a paracetamol based pain killer i use. There is notes of this on my medical records,is this gonna put a halt on my application
  2. You a lass then?
  3. A few years ago I was rejected because of migraines, the reason given is that they can be caused by stress ..
    fast forward a few years, the cause was identified and sorted/managed, after 3 years practically symtom free they didnt bat an eye lid on my med ..

    Pop along and ask, it will help if you know the trigger ..

    The Doctor wasn't bothered.
