Ok... This aint pretty but I seem to have major problems with getting an upset tummy during long haul flights... I am terrified of flying but have had hypnotherapy to help alleviate the panic attacks but I still get a really upset stomach while on the flights.
We are flying to Oz this summer and I am dreading the flights anyway without the added discomfort of being sick and having bottom troubles the whole way. It will be even more inconvenient since I will have to look after LO.
Anyway, no one I know in RL will admit to having this kind of trouble while flying so either I am a complete freak and no one knows what I am talking about or it is so embarrassing to discuss that I can only anonymously turn to you helpful people for some advice...
O M G! yes! my Ds and I had terrible tummies on our flights back from Oz in 91. In the end I bought some nasty stuff from a pharmacy in Singapore airport and it helped considerably. Could you take some Immodium with you to tackle it quickly? I think that's what I'd do if I was doing the long haul again Good luck!
Thanks for the advice on Immodium. I was thinking Peptobismal but it didn't really help enough the last time so I will defo get Immodium. You can get capsules can't you? Not sure why flying has this effect. Must just be a result of all the adrenaline cos I get so blimmin terrified on take off and landing (and during the flight if I think about it too much which shouldnt be a problem this time as will have LO with us!)
