Decided to take the plunge again and go on holiday to Menorca.
First day 2 hour car ride to airport, delayed flight, 4 hrs at airport, 2 and half hr flight and 25 minute transfer.
Arrived exhausted but actually OK! Second day it rained so stuck in place with flying ants and the place had been sprayed with the old insectiside but the cleaners came round and sprayed some more Managed to go out for a good kareookee session that evening (drinking apple juice, no alcohol)
Monday the sun came out (a lot!) stood at bus stop waiting to take the bus to the capital Mahon and that old familiar disorientation dizziness, walking round capital feeling a vertigo attack was imminent. Got taxi back up the hill as felt exhausted and aching muscles, took a stemetil.
Woke 3 oclock Tuesday morning with flashing zig zag lights, Tuesday spent indoors, one hour down the beach at teatime with a hat one and still blinding migraine. Wednesday still blinding migraine, in most of day and took the little bus train to Punta Prima evening again.(Painkillers and more painkillers)
Thursday didnt dare risk anything as migraine just lifting and needed to get home on Friday (the time I went to Spain I ended up with severe vertigo attack the day before I flew home).
Friday up and taxi to take us to airport late (stress), got to airport and hr delay again, migraine coming on and low blood sugar, waiting for food feeling like going to pass out. Flight home bumpy and had head pressed back on seat feeling sick. Then drive home, such a relief to be back.
What do we do? Have had this condition for over 20 years now and wont let it beat me. Determined to lead some sort of normal life, but how can this holiday be described as normal! Have had constant bad heads for a week since being home, just as happened the last time I went. It must be the insectiside they put in the accommodation, the sun and the stress.
Anybody else worse on holiday?
Christine (wondering whether to ever attempt holiday abroad again)
