I got TMU

Gaeb

Newbie
I just got TMU today for my medical . Because i declared i have headache and migraines but what i meant about that is just the common ones. Like when you forgot to eat a meal because you are late for work and end up having heaches and migaines or got really tired from work and stuff like that just like common heaches and migraines probably once or twice a month. I think they will contact my surgery about that and since those symptoms only last for a couple of hours i dont go to the GP for that and they dont have any records of it there. What should i do? Is this gonna cause major troubles to my application


Hope someone helps

I don't know how you're fixed medically but I can tell you the life on one of Her Majesties Ships is not always three meals per day and a good night sleep. For a variety of operational reasons interruptions to the supply of food and lack of sleep can occur sometime concurrently.. By all means press on and appeal if you're made PMU but don't say no-one told you about the rigours of service life.

A migraine is not a headache.

I've had ocular migraines a couple of times before (but without the headache, mercifully) and it's much more like a shit LSD trip than a headache.

Others that have the painful version of migraines will tell you the pain is next level stuff compared to a headache.

You probably shouldn't have told them you had migraines.

If you are suffering actual, real migraines (not just a hangover headache) on a regular basis you don't want to be joining an armed force TBH.

I suffer from aural migraine, no headache at all. Just zigzag lines falling like a waterfall across my eyes. Bloody awful, and fortunately diagnosed twenty odd years after I left.
There are many types of migraine

Thanks for info . Always believed that headache/migraines are the same but when i read that article. It's all clear now i dont have any migraine symptoms just a common headache that goes away in a couple of hours No blurry vision and No seeing lines like that article said. My bad should have done some research hope everything goes okay for me

In answer to your question, what to do.

Always, tell the truth to any medical board. Explain your misunderstanding regards headaches and migraines. If you truly have never mentioned migraines to your GP this will be borne out by your medical records which will be looked at by naval medical staff.

Good luck.
