Donít hold me to it but I thought you had to be symptom free for a year after migraine.
Others with more knowledge will be along.

You're saying my report maybe not enough to prove I'm clear to get even special issuance...right?

They may want to definitely rule out anything other than migraines. I've seen that with a friend's loss of consciousness episode.

I'd recommend AOPA or one of the aviation medicine consultants.

My best friend was plagued by migraines... much better after he eliminated all booze and caffeine.

I have gotten a 60 day letter before. If you got a Medical from your AME you are good. You still Have one!!! They are just saying if you donít provide what they ask within 60 days your Medical is revoked. It may take another six Months after you provide the new info. I actually never heard anything after I submitted the additional info. The FAA doesnít like things that never get a resolution. They may just simply want more info and you never hear from them again. Make sure you provide a stateside address with applicable dates if possible.

Airline pilot here. I have occasional migraines. Cleared by the FAA for years. Shouldn't be an issue if its explainable.

Migraines
 
FYI -- the AME can issue a medical after a reported migraine with a report from your treating physician and if certain criteria are met.

If situation's going worse, I need to request to my AME! Thanks for the link:)

If you're going to be in Phoenix shortly, contact AME Dr. Burr Ross. Appointments are available online at Home

Migraines
 
Maybe this is a strange question, but are there any studies about aircraft (instrumentation, radar, etc.) *causing* migraines, and the like?
