What is motion sickness?

People with motion sickness feel dizzy, lightheaded and/or nauseous when traveling -- either by vehicles or theme park rides. Motion sickness occurs when the brain can't make sense of information sent by the eyes, ears and body. Anyone can be affected, but is more common in children and pregnant women.

Symptoms of motion sickness

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Vomiting during a similar situation

  • Dizziness

Questions your doctor may ask to check for motion sickness

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose motion sickness

  • Do you have nausea or vomiting?

  • Do you vomit when you think of when you had vomited before?

  • Are you feeling dizzy right now?

Treatment for motion sickness

Some people find that it helps to choose seats where they feel less motion sickness and to avoid reading/using electronic devices while traveling. Eating lightly, avoiding strong odors and smokers can help. A doctor may prescribe medications that can help.
