5 Tips For Surviving A Plane Ride With EDS

1) Ask for the wheelchair assistance and pre-bording.  Even if you don’t know if you “really” need it…it’s generally better to use any extra help when traveling. Pre- bording can be a life saver if you prefer to sit the bulk head, the front row with extra leg space.

2) Pillows! My best recommendations are the posey ankle pillow & the bean pillow because of their versatility.
