Travel Tips for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Illness ~ National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association



Here's an excerpt from the article:

An important note: if you are traveling with health-related medications, liquids, machines (such as a C-PAP unit) or with braces, canes, etc. you have certain rights and responsibilities to be able to travel with them as well as the declaration and handling of these items. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) can inform you and help you know what you need to do to travel by airplane. Go to http://www.tsa.gov/ for details.

Amtrak has information for travelers with disabilities including special rooms and cars for those who cannot negotiate the stairs on the cars. You can learn more at http://www.amtrak.com/.

Having fibromyalgia and having a good time are not mutually exclusive. Managing your condition as well as your trip will help you keep feeling good as well as have great memories of the wonderful time you had.
