    It happens to my girlfriend, but once we're in the air she gets over it.

    If its a problem, definitely talk to your doctor about it.

      I sometimes do before a flight, depending on my frame of mind and what I'm thinking about. My nerves affect my tummy, so I take my Rx and everything eventually is ok. I used to take Gravol (the 4 hour kind, not long acting 12+ hr) and that helped me doze through the flight. The turbulence actually lulls me to sleep!!

        I am so keyed up the night before anything big that I can't sleep either. So like you I take something to help me sleep. Usually a benadryl.

          Low dose Xanax works wonders for me! Better than a sleep aid.

            I can totally relate to this

            I am a terrible flyer. Its not being in the air that scares me I just get a bit claustrophobic if we are sat in a row of 3 and the 3rd person is a stranger
            I know it's wierd but I can't help it.... I dont eat before I fly incase I am ill on the plane and embarrass myself in front of this stranger!!

            I am taking a 10 hour flight to Jamaica on Thursday so Ladies wish me luck xx

              I can totally relate in terms of not being able to sleep the night before, however it's because i'm a terrible flyer.

              I love to travel, but if i could get there by land or sea i would totally do it.

              I had a terrible experience once and since then have been terrified of flying, every little noise or turbulence make me squirm with fear in my seat.
              I also don't eat on flights, but that's due to fear and not embarassment.
              All i thinkg about is that there is nowhere else to go but down if something were to happen. Almost makes me wonder why i agreed to get married away.

              I'm so going to need something to knock me out for our flight.

                  I love to fly but get so nervous about flying. Short flights I'm okay on. We have our flight to Hawaii in January and I'm already worrying about it! That will be the longest flight I've ever been on! Hopefully just thinking of being there and getting married and enjoying the honeymoon will relax me some.
