NO MORE FLY-GRAINES
Use this proven trick to reduce airplane headaches.
Changes in cabin pressure when you’re on a flight can lead to sinus inflammation, triggering sudden, intense pain around your eye — an airplane headache, says Parisa Gazerani, associate professor from Aalborg University in Denmark who studies the phenomenon. Had one before? To avoid a repeat, take an NSAID 30 to 60 minutes before flying, and pop a mint during takeoff and landing. If you still get zapped, pace the aisle to rev circulation, which may dull the ache faster.
