Experiencing motion sickness?

October 28, 2016

Motion Sickness can strike suddenly, progressing from a feeling of uneasiness to a cold sweat, dizziness and then vomiting. It usually quiets down as soon as the motion stops. The more you travel, the more easily you'll adjust to being in motion. You may escape motion sickness by planning ahead. If you're traveling, reserve seats where motion is felt least:

  • By ship, request a cabin in the front or middle of the ship near the water level.

  • By plane, ask for a seat over the front edge of a wing. Once aboard, direct the air vent flow to your face.

  • By train, take a seat near the front and next to a window. Face forward.

  • By automobile, drive or sit in the front passenger's seat.

Your brain senses movement by getting signals from your inner ears, eyes, muscles and joints. When it gets signals that do not match, you can get motion sickness. For example, down below on a boat, your inner ear senses motion, but your eyes cannot tell you are moving. Where you sit can make a difference. The front seat of a car, forward cars of a train, upper deck on a boat or wing seats in a plane may give you a smoother ride.

 

Conflicting signals can cause motion sickness. For example, when you’re on an airplane you can’t see turbulence, but your body can feel it. The resulting confusion can cause nausea or even vomiting. #nausea #motionsickness #dizziness #headache #migraine #medicine #treatment #cure #specialist #neurologist #winnielimkhoo #neurologistinmanila #manila #philippines #health #tips #advise
