If you develop a medical problem during the time period that your current FAA medical certificate is in effect, you need to go to AOPA's Medical Certification section and see if the condition will require a special issuance waiver. You also can check the Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners on the FAA's website. Now that it is online and is regularly updated, this is a great resource in addition to the AOPA website.
