Autoimmune Encephalitis - I have this diagnosis for some neuro-psychiatric symptoms I was exhibiting, including OCD (I'm pretty sure everybody has some OCD)...
Whoops, almost missed something. Yes, everybody "probably" suffers from some kind of CDO. Mine is making sure everything is alphabetized properly. But I almost glossed-over the first part of your statement: "I have this diagnosis for some neuro-psychiatric symptoms...including OCD."
Oh really? What are the other
neuro-psychiatric symptoms? Come clean with us, boy! What kind of psycho sh*t have you got going on in that little 16 year-old brain of yours? Suicidal thoughts? Getting a bunch of tattoos and dressing like Justin Bieber? Are you one of them anti-social goth kids at school? (Do they even exist anymore? They do on South Park, but that's my only peek into modern pop culture.)
Addison's...hmm...hormone deficiency? Gee, I wish I had a few *less* hormones when I was 16. They seemed to control my life back then. DO I HAVE TO SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU? Yes, I was a total boy-whore.
Ah, but seriously... Look son, you have a hard road. Just having Addison's is bad enough. The other things...well...you'll have to deal with them the best you can.
Asking for medical advice from pilots on an internet forum is just silly. None of us are doctors (well, except for Admiral Professor General Dr. Avbug, MD. PhD., DDS, Esq.) The rest of us really can't tell you much. What we all *can* tell you is that the FAA takes loss-of-consciousness, or even the potential
loss-of-consciousness VERY seriously.
Friend of mine had a minor motorcycle accident. Fell down and bumped his helmeted head hard enough to make him black out for a moment or two. Dutifully he reported this to the FAA who basically told him (I swear this is true), "You're not a pilot anymore. Call us back in two years when you've documented that you haven't had anymore blackouts."
He couldn't apply for another medical for two years. He couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe it! Two friggin years?? Yep. The FAA said, "See ya!" as they tore his flight physical into tiny little bits and scattered them to the winds, mimicking in size the ticker-tape parade Hillary will have after she's elected in a couple of days. So my friend took a little two-year vacation, bought a camper and toured the country with his wife and kids. Fortunately he is back flying today, happy and healthy and no more blackouts (and no more motorcycles, by the way!).
So JohnW, given all you've told us, I can say with some confidence that the FAA will probably *never* grant you a medical that would allow you to fly commercially (e.g. Class II or higher). They *might* grant you a special issuance Class III (perhaps renewable every six months) to fly for fun.
It is sad that you probably won't be able to find your fortune as an airline pilot. I hate that you thought you might have to "settle" for helicopters because the medical standards are so much more lax than the airlines. Dammit, the money just isn't as good in our industry. Although I have to admit, taking selfies in helicopters is way cooler than in the cockpit of a 737. ...Unless you're that British Airways pilot who recently made the news...yikes!
But hey, the world needs actors too! In fact...I just watched a movie called "This Is The End" that had a bunch of supposedly hot young Hollywood actors in it (Franco, Rogen and that super-annoying fat kid from Super Bad - whatever his name was, Joshua-something, I forget). What a piece of sh*t movie! I'm glad I didn't pay to see it. Halfway through I picked up my phone and got lost in Facebook and YouTube as I usually do on a Friday night...and it wasn't even Friday night! If the morons in that movie constitute the best of the best of the current Acting Community in the film industry, then we're in deep, deep trouble. There's a definite hole you could probably fill (and no that's not a James Franco homosex joke). Even if you only ever acted in your third grade production of Macbeth, you'd probably still be a better actor than that Seth Rogen. Ugh. I say go for it.
Whatever happens...whichever road you take...good luck to you.
