Motion sickness summary
Motion sickness (travel sickness, sea sickness or car sickness) symptoms include dizziness, nausea and vomiting.
Frequent vomiting can lead to dehydration and low blood pressure, so seek medical attention if you are severely affected.
Watching the scenery going by, instead of fixing on one point, can help motion sickness. Fresh air can also help. Ginger and some medications may help prevent motion sickness.
It is the unpleasant sensation of nausea and dizziness that some people experience when riding in a moving vehicle.
Can be brought on by travelling in cars, boats, submarines, aeroplanes, trains, by riding amusement rides that spin, and even when using a swing at a playground.
