Altitude is a big trigger for me. Even traveling short distances in a plane leaves me with a migraine that feels like my head will explode. No meds will take that away. My son has been living in Germany for three years and is very upset that I won't make the 12 hour flight to see him. I am terrified of how sick I would get on the plane, especially since I also get motion sickness, and its much worse with a migraine. Getting sick in front of 300 people is very traumatic, it happened once and I don't care to ever repeat that. So does anyone have any suggestions how to deal with flying? What could I possibly take that would make my head not feel pressure. They say airplanes are pressurized to 8,000 ft.That's pretty high for my head. I normally take Zomig or fiorinal, but they don't do a thing in this situation. Any suggestions? What does everyone do? I can't be the only one.
