Motion Sickness


Motion sickness is due to abnormal or irregular movements which disturb the organs of balance located in the inner car.
This usually happens while travelling in a car, especially uphill or downhill, particularly if the curves are taken fast.
It is commoner among children who tend to be emotionally disturbed.
Poor ventilation or hunger makes it, worse.
Stopping the car and walking about for a bit to get some fresh air helps.
Lying down also relieves the symptoms.
Motion sickness can occur while travelling by air or sea, or even riding in a merry-go-round or sitting in a swing.
There are some medicines for preventing motion sickness., which can be taken before starting on al journey.
A doctor should be, consulted before giving the medicines.
