Motion sickness occurs when the body, the inner ear, and the eyes send conflicting signals to the brain. This most often happens when a person is in a moving vehicle such as a car, boat, or airplane, but it may also happen on flight simulators or amusement park rides. From inside a ship's cabin, the inner ear may sense rolling motions that the eyes cannot see, and, conversely, the eyes may see movement on a "virtual reality" simulation ride that the body does not feel. Interestingly, once a person gets used to the movement and the motion stops, symptoms may return (although usually only briefly). Sometimes just anticipating movement can cause anxiety and symptoms of motion sickness. For example, a person who had previously had motion sickness might become nauseous on an airplane before take-off. There are several ways you can try to prevent motion sickness:

?Sit in the front seat in a car.

?Keep your eyes on the horizon. Don't read.

?Rest your head against the seat back, to keep it still.

?Turn the air vents toward your face.

?Don't smoke.

If you have motion sickness on a plane, try these tips:

?Avoid big, greasy meals and alcohol the night before air travel.

?Eat light meals or snacks that are low in calories in the 24 hours before air travel.

?Avoid salty foods and dairy products before air travel.

?Sit toward the front of the aircraft or in a seat by the wing.

?Turn the air vent flow toward your face.

If you have motion sickness on a boat, try these preventive measures:

?Ask for a cabin on the upper deck or toward the front of the ship.

?When on deck, keep your eyes fixed on the horizon or visible land.

I get that, but not as bad by the sounds of things.

I got told by the doctor to either suck on a hard boiled sweet such as cough sweets or those sweets that old women eat or press your thumb against the roof of your mouth and suck (I know it sounds a tad weird but it works)
