jlmahon Posted March 11, 2007 Report Share Posted March 11, 2007 My husband and I planned a trip for next weekend several months ago when I was feeling much better. I'd still like to go as the weather is warmer and I really need to get away. Even if I spend my time sitting by the pool and nothing else. Problem - standing in an airport security line. The last time I stood in an airport security line, I got a severe attack of nausea and almost passed out and had to leave the line. We almost missed our plane. Do you think a note from a doctor explaining my problem with standing would help? I'm really hoping if I can just get through the security line I can somehow walk to the gate. I usually don't have problems with walking although with my health lately I'm not sure.Problem two - symptoms when flying. I'm not sure if this is due to pressure changes or changes in oxygen level but I hyperventilate when flying. Does anyone else get this and know what I can do to to alleviate the problem? Also, does anyone have a problem with needing to urinate every 15 minutes when flying? It seems like I can't keep fluids in me when flying. I think it would be beneficial to sit in a front row where I can stretch out and be near a restroom, but how do I go about that when flying on an airline without assigned seating?Any suggestions would be appreciated!
