Headache Leave Letter for Office

Updated on: April 25, 2019

Getting sick is not in anyone’s control. Workload means that one can get a headache off and on.

When one gets a headache, it is almost impossible to work. Whether you are at work or at home, when a headache strikes, you may need to ask for a leave.


To make sure that you are provided with a leave, you must write a letter to your employer, or direct supervisor.

What to write in a Headache Leave Letter?

Well, the fact that you are unwell must be highlighted in it. Even though this will be a short letter, you have to highlight the reasons that you need to leave your office early, or cannot come into work.

In your letter, you must highlight how bad you are feeling, and how staying at work will make it worse for you.

When you have a raging headache, it is impossible to be productive.

Headache Leave Letter for Office

Ocean City, MD 37998


Dear Mr. Mason:

I have been trying to concentrate on work for the last 4 days, but due to a raging headache, I have been unable to do so. While I have not taken any time off for it, I fear that I will not be able to come in today.

During work yesterday, I had a dizzy spell, and nearly fell down because of this constant headache that I am getting. I have been taking over the counter medication for it, but nothing seems to help beyond a few hours. And those hours have not been productive because the washed out feeling that I get right after makes me want to lie down.

I am afraid that I won’t be able to come in today. I will be visiting my doctor today for further investigation. I am hoping that it is not anything serious and that I can come to work tomorrow. In my absence, I would like to hand over my work to Ms. Deborah Wilson, as she knows most of my clients. I will be available on the telephone should anyone need to consult me.

Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience that the office may face due to my absence. I will surely make up for it.
