Flying long haul with MS

Flying long haul with MS

Has anyone flown long haul? I'm going on a trip home in September and it will be a long trek totaling around 12 hours of flying. I'm expecting to be pretty uncomfortable but has anyone had any experience with flights, the airline and their accommodations for MS people, tips... anything that might help? I will be traveling with my husband, mother-in-law and one year old baby so drugging myself and sleeping is not an option :(

Can anyone with mobility problems advise me about plane travel and trips abroad?

I am looking for a temporary pain management drug
