Terrible Symptoms After Flights Home
Posted 08 November 2012 - 06:13 PM
First-timer to the site. Diagnosed in May. Dieting since June. All has been well, EXCEPT when I fly. It has nothing to do with the foods I eat while away from home because I am sticking to the diet. And I never feel the symptoms following my departing flight. But following my return flight, I experience 2-3 days of bad stomach cramps, diarrea, etc. Most of my return flights are very early in the morning; I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Has anyone experienced similar issues? Any help?

I don't have quite the same situation as you do but I have found that when I take off and land more than once in a day (and it is worse on the way back for some reason) I end up feeling very bloated and uncomfortable for a couple of days and then it has to "work itself out". The best answer I have come up with is actually taking some dramamine or something similar. I never thought that I was dealing with motion sickness but I think it must be something like that. It does seem to make a difference for me.
Even with that I will admit that very long flights make my body pretty angry and this is why I should own stock in Pepto...
Hope this helps!!
