Hi all, Hope this post is in the right area. For the last few years I've noticed that I do much better in the spring. Remarkably so. I don't really understand why but I have significant reduction in pain and surge in energy for a month or so in the spring. I'm thinking of taking advantage of that this year and have my husband and I go on a vacation. The thought is scary because I never know how I'll be tomorrow let alone make plans in advance. And I hate the thought of spending $$ if all I can do is stay in bed. But we have friends who want us to come visit and we can stay with them. Even if I'm not well, my husband can go out and do stuff with them while I rest. He REALLY needs a vacation. He works his butt off and has been through a lot of stress lately, but if I don't go, he won't go. I've never flown, the thought scares me. I was wondering if there is usually an increase of specific symptoms when flying? It takes me days to recover if I go visit my parents by car, who live 2 hrs away. The flight would be about 4 hrs. I don't handle medication well but I'm thinking of getting at least a muscle relaxant. I often use a Tens machine, would I be able to fly (in Canada) wearing one? Any other tips/suggestions?
