FWIW, I'm seeing a lot of sailing-oriented motion sickness videos that recommend ONE foam earplug inserted into an ear (some have mentioned the one OPPOSITE your dominant hand) is a great help. If you travel, having such earplugs can be handy anyway in case you are in a loud hostel, hotel, campsite — bad sleep can ruin the next day. Anyway, light, cheap, portable, and non-chemical. Hopefully, this will help someone who suffers from motion sickness.

He didn't mention anti-sickness bands. I wear them instead of taking pills. I have used anti-sickness tablets before, but they actually made it worse, not better. I thought I had grown out of my motion sickness, but while on holiday last year it reared its ugly head while on some rides, not fun at all [I was wearing my bands the whole time].

A few years back, I was a passenger on a very rough boat ride. The boat was delivering a crew or people to an oil rig offshore and the weather and seas were horrible!  The boat was actually a small ship with 3 engines made by the manufacturer I represent. Two of the three engines had a breakdown. The ship's crew had become incapacitated by motion sickness. The chief engineer asked if any Caterpillar mechanics were in the passengers. I volunteered!  It seems I must be one of the immune folks because while the rest of the crew and passengers were miserably tossing cookies into the bilge areas; I had no problems getting the engines up and running again. After the ride was over; the ship's captain explained that losing all engines in rough seas was potentially a life-and-death situation and that my help could have possibly saved lives! So maybe that small immunity had a really big impact on the outcome of this situation!

I get motion sickness sitting in the backseat of a friend's car sometimes, and the only two times I remember it being a real issue was when I was motion sick *and* drunk, coming home from parties. Funny thing was that on one of those occasions, I was still living in my mom's place, and she recommended a nice hot cup of ginger tea as a hangover cure for the morning after. To this day I still have no clue as to whether the tea was for the motion sickness OR the hangover, but it worked, after some sips and a nice 6-hour morning hibernation.

BUT WHY DOES WATCHING THIS VIDEO ABOUT MOTION SICKNESS MAKES ME FEEL SICK? Seriously, even discussing motion sickness makes me drowsy and feel like I've been punched in the gut, not the immediate need to puke like some, but the feeling like I've been puking already and am sore and exhausted... But I'm not moving! I'm watching a video discussing motion sickness!!

I used to take ginger pills, and they did help some, but does anyone else notice they develop a sort of tolerance and withdrawl effect with them? Like if I have to some several days in a row for car trips, and they wear off, then even when not in a motion sickness situation, I start to get sick like withdrawl from a medication sick. And I need more pills the next time to get the same effect. But it's really fast too. I can't even drink ginger ale anymore, cause I get the withdrawl effect with it now too. Though that may be more because I usually only drank it when sick, and now associate it with nausea.

Thank you for proving I wasn't doing it in purpose with science!! People who don't get motion sick can be REALLY mean when you get motion sick, I've even had someone tell me I was doing it on purpose. Like yes, I chose to purposely vomit all over myself and someone else's car in the beginning of a three hour trip where I would just have to sit in it and couldn't get cleaned up was TOTALLY something I wanted to do! Like I get it's annoying for you, but imagine how I feel! It's HORRIBLE! Earlier in that trip, before vomitting in the car, we pulled over at a gas station, and I held it in the whole time until we stopped, and then I immediatly whipped the door open and spewed. The person literally chatised me for vomitting where people walk (it was parking lot, you can walk around) and I'm just thinking, "at least it wasn't in your car!" Even my own father would be like "Your just making it worse in your head, try harder not to get sick!" Yes, I'm totally just casually trying not to vomit and be sick, yeah, I could totally do more. No, that's not how it works. The most control I've ever had is holding a mouthful of vomit on the school bus once so I wouldn't barf on a friend. I had that in my mouth for at least 15 minutes, until I found a trash can at school. If I can do that, I think I could control getting car sick if it were possible.... Which it's not... Now notice those same people don't blame animals that get motion sick...

I feel like youtube videos should come with a warning for the 'motion impared'. I constantly get motion sick when watching vlogs or any kind of handheld footage :( I also scuba dive so I'm constantly on a boat and have tried for ages to 'train' myself to get used to it by not taking medication. Needless to say I haven't made much progress.

Older video, I shall revive with a comment! The only time I have known to get motion sickness is only when I am reading in a moving car, aaaannndddd when I watched Hardcore Henry, since that movie was in a first person perspective, a lot of shaking and vigorous movements made me sick throughout the entire movie.

Oh so when you get motion sickness from a video game it's the other way around from a moving vehicle, right? Your eyes say motion but your cochlea says stationary.

Seasickness or any other related motion sickness is because of your perception. Read this about seasickness and WHY it happens: http://studnerd.blogspot.in/2016/10/why-do-i-feel-seasick.html Interesting.

i am no expert at all but it might be related to how portals work in the game? like in CS its pretty much impossible for you to jump in a hole and appear somewhere else, and even more impossible to change your orientation (sideways, right side up, etc) like in portal. maybe its like a reverse of this; your eyes say that you're in motion but everything else says you arent. that's just my guess. maybe sit a lil further away from your screen if you can?

I believe the reason you get physically sick is because it is a response as if you were poisoned. some poisons may obscure vision in relation to other senses and may cause severe dizziness. I believe it is because the brain believes you may have been poisoned that you may be induced vomiting. If you ever sail, they say to always look at the horizon while sick, it gives your eyes a stationary frame of reference while below deck has nothing stationary at all, and your brain can't make together the cause of motion.

I appear to be in the group of people who is immune to motion sickness. Does this mean I'm immune to hallucinogenics as well? Or that I'll just have a better experience if I take them because I won't get nauseous? ha ha :) The only times I really get sick in a car is when we're driving down the mountain after a long day of skiing in the winter. But I think that's mostly from the sickening stench of burning brake pads as people ride their brakes all the way down the mountain in front of us. Seriously people, don't you know how to downshift and let your engine take the strain instead of your brakes???

Wow am I really in the 30% that /does not/ get motion sickness? I would have thought for sure that considerably fewer people were affected by it. Just makes me feel extra-special lucky that I can read and write and listen in planes, trains, and automobiles without even the slightest hint of nausea. Oh and on boats too, even when I'm below decks in choppy water.

i think some people are immune because we used horses for thousands of years, and people immune to motion sickness would be better horse riders, giving them an advantage.
Jo-Jo Beans (2 года назад)
Good point. Interesting idea. I wonder if there's really a correlation there? Could be cool to find out more about this.
BigBen Hebdomadarius (2 года назад)
Looking at the horizon is a good way to keep motion sickness from developing. Bad smells can add to the problem, so if you're at sea, try to stay on deck and away from the smell of the bilge and the head. Try also to avoid paying attention to other people's reactions, since seasickness seems to be mentally contagious. Apparently, it regularly happens that if one passenger on a boat gets seasick, almost everyone else on the boat will also, in sympathy. My goodness, I'm getting queasy just _thinking_ about motion sickness!

The reasons you've mentioned my not apply to every case. Sometimes motion sickness indicates that you have problems with your vestibular system, especially if you have balance issue - in this case you should visit a neurologist and go through a vestibular rehabilitation course. In such cases medicine such as dramamine should work fine for you (although it's very individual). I didn't have motion sickness until 17 y. o., and my balance is perfect, but then all out of sudden I started to feel terribly sick in any vehicle and even when somebody shook my bed. Damn it, I got motion sick walking on the Brooklyn Bridge! No medication worked for me whatsoever. Then I went through psychological reconditioning course, started eating healthy and exercising regularly, stopped being nervous about stuff like studying and the most amazing thing happen - it all went away. For 5 freaking year no doctor could help me, and now I can ride again. I'm so happy!

Aashrit Parvangada (2 года назад)
Hi Scishow, just a theory here. Back when people were living out in the wild, it'd seem like our senses wouldn't add up when we've either sustained some sort of injury, or when we've been poisoned by something nasty we ate. Maybe this vomiting reflex is merely the product of that evolutionary demand. Those who puked out their poison lived, those who didn't have the assistance from their brain died.

Jonathan Melena (2 года назад)
It's actually because your eyes say that you're moving (seeing things pass by) but the thing in your ears say you're not moving, so your body think poison = vomit
Etianen7 (2 года назад)
It's the other way around, because your eyes see the fixed interior of the vehicle, but your body feels movement.
Josh Adams (2 года назад)
Or the other way around.

Once,I started feeling motion sick aboard a catamaran off the coast of Hawaii. To solve this problem, I went below decks and ate some small wedges of cheddar cheese, and the problem faded and never returned. I still do not understand why this happened, but with the exception of myself, an elderly couple, and the crew, everyone else on board became horridly seasick.
