    Hello, for around a year and a half I suffered from random attacks of vertigo and was undignosed by the doctors however they did say it could go away on its own and could be a cause of my previous obesity. This issue has not affected me for a year after dropping weight and going though one inner ear exercise session. Would something like this affect my application for something that used to affect me but I am now clear of. To give some context, this issue does not affect my daily life now and I can do heavy exercise without this being an issue.

    Thanks all!

    Can you work at height without issue? Have tried it?

    Yeah, some of my current job requires me to work at height and I've had no issues. The issue I had was never really diagnosed. I had a MRE scan and I believe a CT scan and it came up with nothing. I just kept being referred until it went away, I cancled my appointments as all the doctors were doing were referring me and it was no longer an issue.

    Yep, it could've even been an ear infection, I guess. As long as it wasn't diagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome & you're clear of the condition by a good year or more, I'd be surprised if it was a show-stopper.

    Again, best bet is to provide the medical records relating to the condition when you submit your completed medical questionnaire.
