In about two weeks, My fiance and I are packing up a rental truck and and moving--a 24 hour long drive--from South Florida to cold, snowy Buffalo, NY. We had originally planned on flying and getting someone else to ship our stuff, but that fell through when we realized how much money it was going to cost, and how little we actually had to spend.
So, my question is, have any of you made a long road trip in chronic pain?
The longest trip I have made since I've had my current level of pain was a 4 hour drive, and I ended up hurting so much that we haad to stop constantly so I could stretch. (That turned it into about a 6 hour drive.) That drive was also in a spacious rental car that I could recline in, not a tiny cab of a rental truck, with a cat.
Aside from taking a handful of medications, does anyone have any tips or personal experiences with long road trips they can share?
I am planning on bringing an electric heating pad for the car. (I have a power converter that I can plug it into.) and pillows, of course.
We are also probably stopping for 2 or 3 nights on the way, depending on the weather and how well I'm holding up.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
