For some strange reason, air travel seems to be a trigger for a lot of us. Air travel at very high altitudes that is. Which is what most airlines fly at, naturally. Small planes, like the puddle jumpers between islands or on a short trip between say...Las Vegas and Tahoe. Don't seem to have the same effect. I have no reason here. Just commenting. When you are in the air at 30,000 feet, the cabin is pressurized to a degree that it would be as if you were in a car and driving up a mountain to about 8,000 feet. Your ears might want to pop, but there isn't any long term affects of it. So what I reall am trying to say is...GO FIGURE !!!!!!!!!!!! As a precaution, you may want to take your Imitrex along and hold it in your hand for the entire flight. Assumibng of, course that you have, and take Imirex. Once when I was out of Imitrex on a flight. iwent into those stupid bathrooms they have and put my face down to the air jets coming into the room. Acts like an oxygen mask. I paid no attention to the people who wanted to use the bathroom. Screw-em! Good luck to you. Linda Howell and take Imitrex.
