Question for frequent flyers…

For those of you with an enlarged spleen,  who fly often – Do you find that your belly hurts more when you’re in the air? Prior to this summer,  I hadn’t flown much,  and my last flight was my honeymoon 2.5 years ago (at which point my spleen was definitely enlarged,  but not as enlarged as it is now). This summer I have taken several trips and I have noticed that during each flight my pain increases significantly. I’m writing this from the plane right now, and I’m feeling terrible. It gets so bad that I get dizzy and nauseated, and get very flushed. Now before someone suggests this: No.  It’s not motion sickness. I’m not prone to it at all.

I’m curious if anyone else experiences this. Maybe im just weird…well, we know I’m weird… but i mean about this specifically. My guess is it’s got something to do with cabin pressurization.

I’ll post this as soon as we land 🙂 Thanks in advance for any input/suggestions.

As always, you are your own best advocate. If you do not take care of yourself who will?

Until next time,
