Here is a suggestion, just in case you might have PAIN while flying.

For many year I suffered with lots of pain,and tried all suggestions, but nothing worked. It felt like someone was stabbing me with a knife.

One day I visited my doctor and we started talking about different things. I happened to mention about all the pain I had while flying. The then suggested taking Sudafed. Well from that day on, everything has been fine.

I take the Sudafed about 3 - 4 hours before I fly, and if I transfer, (even in flight)I will take the Sudafed 3 - 4 hours before that flight too. I try to write the time down (remember the time zone difference)for coming/going, so I will know exactly when to take it.

I hope this will help someone.

Three cruises ago, our daughter (14 at the time) spent 3 days in our cabin with eustachian/ear pain. We saw the ship's doctor and he prescribed antibiotics for her. When we returned home I spoke with our physician regarding her condition. He said this is common with the airplane's air pressure. He recommended that whenever she flies, she should take a Claritin pill and use Afrin Nasal Spray to keep her passages lubricated. That has proven to be the best advice. She has never had any problems since.

Two or three gin and tonics and a couple of Tylenol P.M.s does the trick for me.

And, you can pack the gin in easily portable individual bottles!

Even that wouldn't get rid of my pain. I know you men do not understand, but to me this pain is worse than childbirth , it is BAD.
