Motion Sickness: Causes, Symptoms and Prevention
Motion sickness is a common issue associated with the inner part of the ear, caused due to repetitive motion of the vehicle; further leading to extreme nausea and vomiting. Some people may experience nausea or a feeling of sickness while traveling in an airplane or in a car especially on mountain ranges.
Due to continuous dizziness, they may complain about headaches and the condition is identified as motion sickness. Children, especially between the age group of 3 to 12 are more susceptible to this condition. Moreover, women who are undergoing menstruation or are pregnant may experience it more than men.
Both motion sickness and seasickness are the same. One may face motion sickness while travelling in the hilly areas, travelling in the sea, in train and flying on a plane. Motion sickness may also occur during fun rides, spinning for a longer period, not eating food for a longer period, and due to bad smell or odor. Motion sickness is all related to the anomaly of the senses and hence one must avoid static activities.
Although, the symptomatic expression is variable from person to person.
Signs and Symptoms:
- Excessive sweating, malaise
Although, most of the cases of motion sickness are mild and can be treated by self, very severe cases need medical advice and medication and reduced travelling.
