Motion sickness occurs when the brain gets mixed signals from the bodys motion sensors in the inner ears, eyes and nerves of the extremities.
Anyone can become motion sick, but its more common among children ages 2 through 12, pregnant women, and people who get migraine headaches.
A little planning can help prevent the nausea and vomiting of motion sickness. Here are some things to try before or after you encounter that twisty road, choppy water or bumpy flight:
Sit where motion is felt less. Drive or sit in a cars front passenger seat; on a cruise, reserve a cabin in the middle of the ship; and on a plane, sit over the wing.
