I am going to go over the final three medical conditions included in the CACI group.
Migraine and Chronic Headaches:
The condition must be stable. The diagnoses must be classical or common migraine, chronic tension (or muscle contracture headaches), or cluster headaches. There can be no more than one headache episode per month. In the year just prior to the certification there cannot have been any in-patient hospital admissions and no greater than two outpatient or urgent care visits for any exacerbations. The only daily prophylactic medications are calcium channel agents or beta-blockers. Now if the headaches are relieved by daily doses of NSAIDS, that would not be a problem either.

SocialFlight users can now publish events via Facebook and Twitter.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System is a voluntary safety reporting program that allows airmen to make anonymous reports to the government about issues encountered in aviation, with anonymity allowing the airman to be candid–even when their actions may have been a violation of the regulations.
Candler Field Flying Club is a young group focused on teaching young people to fly.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
