Traveling with Chronic EBV. Any tips?
I'd like to bring fellow members, @kittykiernan @hahnsolo @sherryntn @mattkl817 and @mrmie, into this discussion as they may have tips for you when traveling with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and not being able to lie down and rest.
@januaryjane, what concerns you the most? What comfort might you pack with you to ease the discomfort of plane travel?

I havent flown much but when I did I got elevation sickness from the pressure, my head was throbbing, ears didnt pop. Also, had major jet lag, and thats when I was 17! Im going to try afrin for the congestion this time. I hate to travel just because of my chronic stuff and how I feel. Im tired a lot so, its a lot of work for me, and I hate that! I want to do stuff, but I also want the comfort of my own home. It just gives me anxiety, especially the pressure to "be normal", if its real or not. I dont want to ruin anyones mood. Sorry, just nervous, hope i can hold up.
