Hgv driver with clusters

Good morning, 


im just wondering is anyone here also a hgv driver? 

the doctor has signed my off sick for two weeks once she agreed it was cluster headaches. 

im just wondering if I am looking at losing my hgv license?

hi griff,

im a hgv driver too. its quite the mine field givent the issues we face, but its not stopped me totally. it does make my employer very on edge, i face regular occupational health matters, bosses that even with documentation just think im pully a sicky.... great if i got paid sick perhaps?!?...  but i do find myself in battle far too often. 


sure under the equality act 2010 section 6, there will be some help?
