Motion Sickness Treatment | How To Stop Motion Sickness

Оценок: 130 | Просмотров: 11263
Motion sickness or travel sickness is feeling sick when you travel by car, boat, plane or train. This weeks video is about the symptoms, causes, remedies and medicines (pills, tablets) to treat motion sickness. Motion sickness (travel sickness) is common, especially in children. It is caused by repeated unusual movements during travelling, which send strong (sometimes confusing) signals to the balance and position sensors in the brain. I've always suffered from motion sickness since a young age and like most people I really don't like it. Thankfully I now know what to do and I'm going to share that knowledge with you in this weeks video. This video was sponsored by Dr Fox (Online Doctor & Pharmacy): https://www.doctorfox.co.uk SYMPTOMS OF MOTION SICKNESS: • Feeling sick (nausea) • Sweating • Increase in saliva • Headaches • Feeling cold and going pale • Feeling weak HOW TO PREVENT MOTION SICKNESS: Prepare for your journey • Don't eat a heavy meal before travelling. • On long journeys, try breaking the journey to have some fresh air, drink some cold water and, if possible, take a short walk. Where you sit • Keep motion to a minimum. For example, sit in the front of a car, over the wing of a plane, or on deck in the middle of a boat. • On a boat, stay on deck and avoid the cafeteria or sitting where your can smell the engines. Breathing and smell • Breathe fresh air if possible. For example, open a car window. • Avoid strong smells, particularly petrol and diesel fumes. This may mean closing the window and turning on the air conditioning, or avoiding the engine area in a boat. Using your eyes and ears differently • Close your eyes (and keep them closed for the whole journey). This reduces 'positional' signals from your eyes to your brain and reduces the confusion. • Try listening to an audio book with your eyes closed. There is some evidence that distracting your brain with audio signals can reduce your sensitivity to the motion signals. • Try to sleep - this works mainly because your eyes are closed, but it is possible that your brain is able to ignore some motion signals when you are asleep. • Do not read or watch a film. • It is advisable not to watch moving objects such as waves or other cars. Instead, look ahead, a little above the horizon, at a fixed place. OVER THE COUNTER MEDICINES Always speak to your pharmacist they will be able to recommend the best treatment for you or your child. Medicines are best taken before the journey. They may still help even if you take them after symptoms have begun, although once you feel sick you won't absorb medicines from the stomach very well. Some medicines used for motion sickness may cause drowsiness. Some people are extremely sensitive to this and may find that they are so drowsy that they can't function properly at all. Always speak to your pharmacist and read the information leaflet. Hyoscine is usually the most effective over the counter medicine for motion sickness. It works by preventing the confusing nerve messages going to your brain. There are several brands of medicines which contain hyoscine - they come in a tablet, patch and soluble form for children. Certain antihistamines can also be useful, although they are not quite as effective as hyoscine for motion type sickness. However, they usually cause fewer side-effects for example, cinnarizine. WHEN TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR: There are a number of anti-sickness medicines which can only be prescribed by your healthcare professional. Let them know what you’ve tired as finding what medicine works best can sometimes be a case of trial and error. Want to see more videos about everything health and pharmacy?

Hi Abraham, very nice vídeo! Make some experiment with ginger and then make another video sharing with us how was It! I always suffered badly from motion sickness and I can Tell you best thing you can do is to take GINGER! Is the only things that really solves It Medicines can be good but they always have some side effect, cause it's a drug. So you can take a GINGER Pill or even a piece of raw ginger (peel It) half an hour before the travel. And If the trip is long (more then 1h30) you take another in the meanwhile. It's very effective and natural Ginger candies and stuff can work too but It must be natural and have the actual ginger, not only a flavour or smell

I used to have but now I'm totally fine. I simply started taking bus for a couple of months. And boom, I don't get any motion sickness now. I used to get motion sickness when I took bus even for a 10 minutes.

Getting dizzy because of some sort of smell is not a symptom of motion sickness. If we try to play a shaky 1st person video game; turn around a few times(on one spot); close our eyes in a moving vehicle; try to read in a moving vehicle; or tilt our head down slightly in a moving vehicle... people with real motion sickness will feel dizziness (extreme dizzines), cold sweats, sometimes numbness, increased heart rate, headache, and even the slightest movement will make us throw up. Yes, it's very hard but most people think that it'll disappear if we always travel, but no. It won't. Trust me.

I have had bad motion sickness all 23 years of my life. It’s worse on a plane and I feel like Iv come to a brick wall as Iv tried EVERYTHING!! It has definitely ruined a lot of opportunities for me over the years. I have finally come to the conclusion that it’s never going to go away you just have to learn to deal with it an learn to stay calm. The panic/anxiety makes it a whole lot worse. I am still open to trying new things so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know 😊

I GET MOTION SICKNESS....it usually is linked to the smell in the plane!!!! its just this bad smell that lingers in planes. also i have found that the sound of the engine and the time of the food service makes me nauseous. this year i took some gingerbread men on the plane with me and i did not feel as sick as i have been in my past plane journeys. it really does work!!!!!
AbrahamThePharmacist (1 месяц назад)
Thanks for commenting and the tip :) I am also the same as soon as I can smell the food I feel nauseous, will give the gingerbread man trick a go on my next flight.

Do avoid medication as it really isn't good for you. However the tip about ginger is good, also a bottle of water. Plus try using the magnetic travel bands which can be very helpful/

Seems like everyone on here get sick on flights. I throw up from 5-15 times on long flight but the weird thing is that sometimes I get sick of the smell of flight food which is exactly what you said. I'm going to give these a go Abe, love the bloopers at the end btw 😹"he looks so cool, obviously cause he works in pharmacy he's really cool" hahahahha

Hi Abraham these tips are great. It is interesting and so useful. I think it is awful the motion sickness. Ginger is good to prevent sickness. Focusing on horizon is a sensible thing to do.Always you are helpful and your advice is welcomed. Especially when you explain in such a easy and straight forward way.Thank you. I wonder if you could use those wrist bands as a precaution. Thank you for video and blessings and hugs and greetings. xoxo

Abraham I'm just like you I feel like vomiting when I smell the airline food! I can't believe other people react to strong smells. When I first noticed it I thought I was alone. I guess others are also suffering with me, my prayers go out to those poor souls. (Lmao I'm a poor soul)

Thank you a lot Abraham I'll definitely try these! This Monday I'll be flying to Seattle from Nevada with two flights. I get motion sickness sometimes but the last time I was on a plane was 2 years ago. What adds on top of that is I have emetophobia (the fear of vomit) so I am very anxious and I need rreasurance. But thank you so much for the tips I'll definitely try them! 😄👍
