Motion Sickness

Motion sickness occurs as a result of recurrent movement, accelerating and decelerating in angular and linear forms of travel. People can get travel sickness in cars, air planes, trains, on boats and even at the cinema. Some people may feel ill even when in an elevator, or more likely on a roller coaster, in virtual reality simulators, surfing or even watching movies. Certain situations may worsen motion sickness like anxiety, an empty stomach, a long-term medical condition, a short-term illness, some medications, the menstrual cycle, and pregnancy.

Symptoms

Symptoms may include nausea and vomiting, headache, dizziness, general discomfort and fatigue. You may also notice excess salivation, yawning, a pale complexion, sleepiness or a cold sweat. Once nausea sets in, it may be difficult for a person suffering from motion sickness to focus and they may feel weak. Rapid breathing, depression or apathy, a buzzing sensation, panic and sensations of body warmth may also be felt.

Causes

Motion sickness is caused by a disturbance in the inner ear. It can be aggravated by anxiety, hunger and unpleasant odors. Keeping your surroundings well-ventilated and staying calm can help. Keeping your vision fixed on the horizon when on a boat can also help reduce symptoms.

Cautions

If you are so dizzy it interferes with sitting up or walking, or if your nausea and vomiting is severe, or if you have a ringing or fullness in the ear or a change in your hearing, or you have ear pain, discharge or bleeding, seek medical attention.
