Coping with motion sickness
Change the circumstances that can lead to conflict between your senses and make you sick.
Some people dread riding on a plane, train, bus, or boat, or even sitting in the back of a car. The motion makes them feel nauseated or dizzy, and it may bring on headaches, vomiting, or cold sweats.
"We're wired differently for processing motion and movement. Some people are less tolerant of motion than others. It's very common," says Dr. Steven Rauch, an ear specialist and chief of the vestibular (balance) division of Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.
