Motion sickness is when a person feels ill or dizzy while in movement. Riding in vehicles like cars, boats, and planes often trigger this condition. Motion sickness is common and will go away on its own, but talk to a nearby Carbon Health about options like medication if you need relief.
- Motion sickness is caused by a disagreement between your inner ear, which senses motion and balance, and your eyes, which are focused on a stationary object. When you are in motion, such as when traveling by car, boat, or airplane, your inner ear sends signals to your brain that you are moving, while your eyes may be focused on a stationary object, such as a book or a screen. This mismatch between your senses can cause the symptoms of motion sickness, which may include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and cold sweats.
