I recently flew to Lanzarote. I am a very anxious person when it comes to flying, so much so, that I missed my 1st flight out there. I rang the Doctors on the way back from my missed flight, and he told me to take Lorazepam for the next flight. I managed to get on the next flight out, but still white knuckle riding in the process. However, I felt really rough for the next couple of days after that. Sore throat etc. I have Asthma and Bronchiectasis.
On the return flight on David Camerons' Plane I hasten to add, lol, I had 3 Lorazepam, and the 1st 2 and a half hours of the flight was dreadful. Turbulence galour!!! The staff sat with me, and they were excellent. Can't fault Ryan Air at all, but since I've landed back in the UK, I have developed a chest infection. I am due to have a gynae op on Weds next week, but not sure if that will go ahead now, but my question is, Can Bad Anxiety bring on a chest infection?
