I have severe full body RSD/CRPS, have had it for 16 years. I've tried everything to get it under control, but no luck. (Yes, even ketamine coma...)
I have a trip coming up where I'll be flying 20+ hours each way and am really concerned about the toll it's going to take on my body. I can't afford to fly 1rst or business class, so lying down is out of the question (on international flights, 1rst and business class seats turn into beds).
I'll be taking my wheelchair with me and using it. I have plenty of meds from my Dr., and will be traveling in comfy (as much as possible) clothes. I plan to bring some instant heat packs (no ice for me, ouch!!) along, but I'm still looking for ideas or tips that will help me to travel comfortably with as little pain and flares as possible.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!! Also, if there is anything I should bring with me from home to make my stay overseas more comfy (not necessarily for the plane ride) please feel free to include them.
