You should also make sure you have plenty of the pain medication that works best for you if you have a flare up, even if you haven’t needed any in a while. Think about what kind of medication works best for you if you get a flare up of pain. Even if you haven’t needed pain killers for some time, it is best to have some with you just in case.
You may be lucky, and need less pain relief while you are away, thanks to warm weather and swimming. Some other symptoms like skin rashes may also improve, but still make sure to protect your skin against the worst of the sun.
Think about what you eat:
Avoid overly processed, salty foods and enjoy lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and lean proteins while you are away.
Drink more water, less wine:
Enjoy a glass of wine or two, but don’t overdo it. Drinking plenty of water will keep your joints lubricated and will encourage you to get up and move when you need to go to the toilet, particularly if you are in a warmer climate. It will also help prevent headaches.5
