What is Motion Sickness

Motion sickness is a common ailment that happens when the inner ear detects movement that doesn’t match what the eyes see. This mismatch between the senses can confuse the brain, causing unpleasant symptoms like nausea, dizziness, sweating, and headaches.

Common Symptoms of Motion Sickness

Common symptoms of motion sickness can include nausea, dizziness, and cold sweats. You may experience a general feeling of being unwell, along with a queasy stomach and the urge to vomit.

Headaches and fatigue are also typical symptoms that can accompany motion sickness.

Sweating, paleness, and increased salivation are additional signs that you may be suffering from this condition. These symptoms often occur due to a disconnect between your inner ear, eyes, and sensory receptors, which can lead to confusion in the brain.

If you’re prone to experiencing motion sickness during travel or other activities, it’s essential to recognize these common

Common Causes of Motion Sickness

Motion sickness happens when the brain gets mixed signals from the inner ear, eyes, and sensory receptors, causing confusion and disorientation. This mismatch can occur during different types of travel, like riding in a car, boat, plane, or train, and even in virtual reality settings.

Some things can make it more likely to get motion sickness, such as reading or looking down while moving, sitting in the back seat of a car, or being in a vehicle with bad ventilation or strong smells.

Smoking and drinking alcohol before or during travel can also make motion sickness symptoms worse. Plus, some people may be more likely to get motion sickness because of their age, genes, or other health issues.

Pregnant women and kids between 2 and 12 years old are especially likely to feel nausea and throw up when they have motion sickness. Knowing these common causes can help people take steps to prevent or lessen the discomfort of motion sickness when they travel.

Available Treatment Options

Our experienced healthcare providers can prescribe medications such as scopolamine patches, antihistamines like dimenhydrinate or meclizine, and promethazine to reduce the risk of experiencing motion sickness symptoms.

These prescription medications work by blocking the signals that trigger nausea, dizziness, and vomiting. Treatment plans are personalized to each patient’s specific needs and can help alleviate the discomfort associated with motion sickness during travel by air, car, sea, or train.

In addition to prescription medications, providers may recommend over-the-counter remedies and self-care tips to further prevent motion sickness.

Over-the-Counter Medications and Self-Care Tips

Over-the-counter medications like Dramamine and Bonine can effectively prevent motion sickness symptoms. These antihistamines work by blocking the confusing signals sent to the brain, reducing nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness.

Ginger products, such as ginger ale or ginger supplements, may also help alleviate symptoms due to their natural anti-nausea properties.

In addition to medications, simple self-care tips can minimize the risk of developing motion sickness. Focusing on a distant, stationary object or the horizon can help stabilize the inner ear senses and prevent confusion in the brain.

Keeping the head still and resting against a seat back can also reduce symptoms. Avoiding reading, looking down, or consuming alcohol and smoking while traveling can further prevent the onset of motion sickness.
