What is Motion Sickness?

Motion sickness can occur while traveling on a plane, train, or automobile. It occurs when the ears can sense movement, but the eyes cannot see it. Motion sickness symptoms include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and fatigue.

Treatment for motion sickness includes medications, focusing on objects in the distance, and sitting in a position to reduce symptoms. Common drug classes used to treat motion sickness are antihistamines, anticholinergics, and antiemetics.
