Anxiety related: It seems that flying is anxiety provoking for u. Your symptoms represent anxiety. Trying a benzodiazepine or a beta blocker might be helpful. Take these medications once before you try it during flight.Taking 0.5mg of xanax (alprazolam) might be a better choice, since it is short and fast acting and sedation may not last long. Propranolol may decrease physical sxs. Of anxiety, but not psychological sxs.Thanks.

Normal Human : You are normal. The only way to overcome this normal or natural response is with experience. Those in health care get to the point where this does not stimulate such a reaction with time and exposure or experience providing care for the sick.
