I have chronic pain from spinal stenosis (lumbar) in my back, hips, calves, feet, and booty. A friend invited me to a vacation house about 3 hours a way by train or car. I desperately want to lay on the beach for a few days. I was thinking of taking the train which is direct (will take taxi to and from station), but thinking about carrying my overnight bag even a few yards seems exhausting. Yet, if I drive, that will exacerbate the pain, especially in my right leg from using the pedals, etc. I haven't driven long distances in about a year. But it seems like I would have more control of my journey if I drove. And I can stop along the way to stretch. Any advice? (This sounds like an SAT question - if the train is going 75 miles an hour, how much pain will the stenosis patient experience?).
