Question
Posted : January 12, 2007
I have read about the epilepsy rules, I am not sure mine was epilepsy but assume so as my sister had it. I had a couple of attacks over twenty five years ago but still take very very low dosage meds, am I still unable to dive as I still take a low form of medication?
