Every time when I'm flying I feel totally bad, all my symptoms are exacerbated- fatigue, anxiety, dizziness, insomnia...I wonder if the pressure in the airplane is somehow influencing my prolactinoma and as a reaction a have boosted symptoms. Some similar experiences?
I don't know if it is the pressure - but being around a lot of people and sharing the stale air... I know my immune system is not the greatest so I always take a hit after air travel so I more attribute it to the stress of travel and being around new germs rather than just air pressure?
Did you ever ask your doctor about it? I know I have to stress dose for flying for the stress of travel - but nothing was ever said about the pressure except for right after surgery and I just had to wait a few days.
Well, my endo isn't a great help. He thinks a microprolactinoma isn't a trouble at all and isn't causing a lot of symptoms. Even my low libido for him isn't related to prolactinoma, but it's a matter of and long term marriage...
