I suffer from chronic migraines and am currently taking a prescription medication with the hope that it will help relieve them. The medication doesn't seem to be working yet, but I will not be able to take the full dosage till next week so, till then, I will not be able to tell if it is helping or not.
Anyway, a coworker of mine tends to wear an extremely strong perfume that I, right now, sitting some fifteen feet away, can still smell. Unfortunately, strong smells like this tend to trigger migraines for me.
What should I do to address this issue? Should I talk to the coworker? Talk to HR? My boss? What should I tell them and how should I address it if this issue arises again in the future?
