This has always been a timely topic to discuss. I am going to take you step by step in preparing a case for presentation to the FAA's Aerospace Medical Certification Division.
First and foremost, when you develop a medical condition, take care of yourself and do what your physicians recommend is best for your particular medical situation. When you have time, start learning all you can about what I call the “aeromedical” aspects of your condition. You need to visit the AOPA medical certification Web page and see if your condition is listed there. You also should visit the FAA website to see what else you can learn. The Guide to Aviation Medical Examiners that the FAA issues to all AMEs is available for you and your treating physician to review.
