Does anyone know if flying has a impact on TBI?

I didn’t have any issues and I’ve been on a plane 6 times since my last surgery

But you should check with your doctor before flying


It's been a while, the pressure hurt so bad. It felt like a vise grip was squeezing my head tighter and tighter.


I have flown quite a bit post TBI. I definitely have more of a sense of be pressure when flying, but the only thing that I really noticed is a bit more brain fog for about 48 hours after. Other than that I still love flying!
