Traveling And Flares

Traveling And Flares

I seem to flare the day of/day after traveling. Day of traveling with mostly with car travel, day after with flying. I love to travel but seems I always pay the price for it. Does anyone else experience this?

It's been 14 years since I have flown and several years since I have travelled more than an hour from home. I have always found that when travelling by car it's very important to stop every two hours or so and just get out to stretch out so you don't get too cramped up. When flying I would suggest getting up just to walk to the bathroom and back just so you stretch some muscles.
