Tips for travelling with Multiple Sclerosis

Dealing with the heat

For many sufferers of MS, the heat is a serious consideration. For those patients that are not excessively heat intolerant, it's still advised to take care when visiting hotter countries. Keeping well hydrated and bringing a cooling case or ice chest will help to keep you from overheating.

Travel arrangements

There are a number of things you can do to make your journey more comfortable. Most airlines have special transport measures for use in the airport, and these can be arranged if you notify the airport in advance. Aircraft are also capable of carrying standard size wheel chairs free of charge, though battery powered wheelchairs may need to be dismantled for the carriage, so remember to bring the assembly instructions for your chair.

Another thing to bear in mind when travelling by plane is that some airlines require a 'fitness to travel' note from your doctor

Vaccinations

Should you require vaccinations for your destination, consult with your Doctor well in advance of your trip. Remember, you will not be able to take vaccinations during an acute relapse or steroid treatment.

Medication

Make sure that you have enough medication to last you for the entire duration of the trip. If you're carrying any medication in your hand luggage, make sure you have the relevant medical certification with you and remember to carry all medication in the original pharmacy packaging. For injectable prescription medication, be sure to have a Doctor's note specifying that your are allowed to take such medicine.
