@littleonefmohio Please forgive me for not replying sooner. I have been dealing with extreme fibromyalgia pain and side effects from taking prednisone.
I too have a hard time riding in the car and keep my appointments as close to home as possible. What has been working for me is sitting in the back seat listening to a book on tape or music using earbuds. I also dab my wrists and collar bone with lavender essential oil.
There have been great responses by other members that I'm going to try also. The B vitamin sounds promising.
I truly hope your panic eases so that you may enjoy the time with your grandbaby.
