Hi (Manager/HR),

I hope this email finds you in the best of your health. The reason for this email is to inform you that I would not be able to make it to work today, (mention date). This urgent leave is because I have been experiencing migraines for a few days. The doctor has asked me to take complete rest for a speedy recovery. However, I will be available to answer calls if you need my urgent help. As for today please contact (co-worker’s name) who will be handling my workload to ensure a swift workday.

Thank you for understanding and cooperation.

Dear (Concerned/ Manager’s Name),

I hope you are doing well.

I am writing this email to inform you that I will not be coming office today because of severe migraine pain. I went to the emergency room last night because of vomiting and the doctor confirmed that I have migraine issues and I should get complete rest for at least a day.

As per the doctor’s advice, I will be taking complete rest and won’t be able to answer any emails. That is why I have asked (Co-worker’s Name) to take over my tasks for today. S/he will also be handling the [Project Name], However, I will be available via calls for your urgent needs.

I have also attached the doctor’s note along with my email. I would appreciate if you can forward this email with the attached note to HR so my sick leave can be processed in time. Thank you for your help.

Dear (Sir/Madam),

The writing of this text is to let you know of my absence from the office dated [DATE]. The reason for this urgent leave is that I have been feeling sick since (last night, yesterday, etc.), and visited a doctor yesterday.

The doctor told me that I have severe migraine pain and that is why I have been feeling nausea and have been extremely sensitive to light and sound. The doctor has advised me to get complete rest for at least (X) days for a swift recovery.

However, I will do my best to stay in touch with the team via emails. Also, I will inform you if I can’t make it to work the day after tomorrow. My timely information will help us to make some temporary arrangements for my workload. As for today and tomorrow, Mrs. Ifrah will take care of my assignments.
I appreciate your cooperation.

I hope you are doing well.

Please accept my leave email as I won’t be able to attend the office today. I am experiencing severe migraine pain along with sensitivity to light and vomiting.

I visited the doctor yesterday and according to him; I will only get better by taking complete rest for at least a day. Truly, I regret the inconvenience that will be caused because of my health. But I ensure you that I will be putting in extra time and effort to cover the delay at work once I get back from my leave after recovery.

Thank you for your cooperation and regards.
