I write this letter to request for a medical leave on August 5 since I will be having my regular full check-up. I have been experiencing persistent back pains and headaches in the past two months and I have been advised by my doctor to have a general check-up to find out what is causing the pains. I have not had such persistent pains before and he is concerned. I have attached with this letter the recommendation signed by my doctor for your reference.
I will make it a point that I will not have my leave without finishing my work for the month. I have already talked to my colleagues to inform them of my leave request and they have agreed to take additional tasks on the said date to augment for my absence.
