Re: Altitiude sickness: Medicine
Mike, hope your hunt went well. I also have had trouble with altitude sickness. I am a Colorado native, but live at about 4000 ft. I hunt elk at 8000 to 10000 ft. I also use Diamox, and consider it a life saver. Previous to using it, I would spend the first day and a half with an absolute horrible headache, and dry heaves. This medication has worked wonders for me. The key is to drink as much water as possible while at elevation. I have also experienced the tingling in my finger tips. It also make carbonated drinks taste so bad, I don't even know how to describe it.
