Motion Sickness Science

If you have kiddos or grandkiddos, this post on motion sickness is for you.

Motion Sickness Science

I have been known to get car sick.  I won’t go on a cruise because I tend to be motion sensitive.  I was the kid in the center of the metal merry-go-round-o’death screaming to get off because I was going to puke.  For the reals.  I was gonna puke all over every kid riding with me and some hanging around the periphery.

Interestingly, I never get car sick when driving or when in the front seat.


Get the lights!  To the video!

There you have it.

I know that this next idea might be pushing it, but will someone let me sit in their back seat and drive me around while I try out this method?

Or are you too skeered at the thought of a car sick granny ride along?

COME ON!  Do it for science, people.

That was a great video, and it really makes sense. I've never had to deal with motion sickness, until my toddler started getting it about year ago. Wow, it totally changes our ability to go on long drives and see out of the way places. When he's old enough, I can give him the tip about looking at the horizon.

Looking at the horizon always helps me.

I NEVER used to get sick in the car... but about 5 years ago we did a deep sea fishing trip and the water was SO bad. SO BAD. I laid on the middle of the boat with my head on the floor the whole two hours or so. Now I get motion sickness for everything. It's awful. I get nauseous if I am sitting up in my kid's playset outside, sitting not moving on the swings etc.

I wonder if I'll feel better if I try ear plugs... it would block sound? Or maybe I misunderstand the video.

I'd try anything. Have you tried the wrist bands? They have a built-in pressure point knot that is supposed to help.

Very interesting! I get motion sickness with cars and on the sea (never planes or trains). I will definitely use this tip in the car; for cruises I take meclizine.

You don't need to miss out on wonderful cruise vacations because of motion sickness!
