How does the FAA address chronic tension headaches? I have had mild CTTH (self diagnosed) for about 6 months but haven't consulted a neurologist or other health professional. Although there is no medical record of my condition, I would like to honestly fill out my next medical app (class 1). My headaches are mostly an annoyance, I don't take any OTC/prescription medicine for them. No migraines, vertigo, nausea, et cetera. But they do exist and the "have you ever in you life" statement is on the form. If I see a neurologist to rule out some unknown illness, then am I consequently shooting myself in the foot with the medical process? I looked at the AME CACI form but it seems to contradict itself, how can someone have chronic headaches with only one episode per month? So does that lead to a special issuance route and what does that entail? Thanks in advance.
