    My son had a headache in summer 2006 that came and went for about 5 days. The doctor said it was a migraine and prescribed Imitrex. Never filled the Rx and the headache went away with Aleve. Had another headache in summer of 2007. Again, only otc used to treat it. I saw the doctor's entry calling it a tension migraine. Son has never taken Rx medication for headaches and hasn't had another episode in over a year. Will this "diagnosis" be a disqualification? Is it waiverable?

    Have your son, describe in detail to me (Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil) what he did during the "headache period." Sleep it off; cool dark room: etc?
    Also pdf me the medical records surrouding the two incidents. I can then give you a more informed answer:thumb:

    Headaches

    It'll take a few days to get the records together and get the info from son. Thanks for your prompt reply.
