Travel and motion sickness do not go well together, especially if you are travelling for the first time to a place. Sea sickness or motion sickness happens when your inner ear senses the motion but your eyes do not see any movement. It is a common condition that is experienced especially when travelling inside a moving vehicle.

What is motion sickness?

Motion sickness, sometimes referred to as sea sickness or car sickness, is a very common condition that occurs when one part of your balance-sensing system (your inner ear, eyes, and sensory nerves) senses that your body is moving, but the other parts don't. For example, if you are in the cabin of a moving ship, your inner ear may sense the motion of waves, but your eyes don't see any movement.
Anyone can develop motion sickness, it is considered a normal response in healthy individuals, but people vary in their sensitivity to motion. Motion sickness most commonly affects children from 2 to 12 years old, pregnant women, and people who are prone to migraines. In addition to sea travel, motion sickness can develop from the movement of a car or from turbulence in an airplane.

What are symptoms of motion sickness?

  • Symptoms of motion sickness are:
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Sweating
  • A sense of feeling unwell
  • These symptoms arise from the inner ear (labyrinth) due to changes in a persons sense of balance and equilibrium.

What are the ways of reducing the risk of car sickness?

  • Rest well before travelling
  • Take antiemetic medicines
  • Inhale fresh air
  • Look outside the vehicle
  • Wear an acupuncture wristband
  • Avoid factors that can trigger motion sickness

  • Get fresh air
