So, I can't tell how long I'm going to be able to get around, so I'm going to Bolivia with my daughter for 9 weeks next month. Two things bother me: altitude sickness is generally 'treated' with chewing coca leaves according to all of the people I have spoken to. Does anyone have any experience of this effecting meds (I'm on sinemet) or can you recommend a good over the counter drug to take please?
Secondly, I am experiencing daily muscle ache in my legs - will altitude make this worse?
Actually, if you have any advice on travelling cheaply ie no 4 star hotels for us, and safely and Bolivian's response to PD I'd be very grateful
