Cars, ick.

Do you get car sick?

I used to get car sick all the time when I was younger, but for years it disappeared. These past few months I'm suddenly getting car sick again, on buses and in friends' cars. In fact, I get carsick even when I'm not in a car! Does anyone know of any solutions?

Oh Dori!
unfortunately I'm so ... :/
I'm sick as a child, sometimes only to imagine myself in a car on a road or in traffic, already moves me ...
I travel shrunken looking for a fixed point on the car floor, and with arms crossed! today, I had no solution! :(

I am A +, and hyper-sensitive all]

I used to get carsick a lot, but not so much anymore. My aunt lived in the mountains and every time we would go visit her I'd barf.

A couple weeks ago I was playing a game on my computer and all of a sudden I felt really motion sick. It was weird.

At first I thought this piece was discouraging cars and their fumes.

"Look out the window" is what my mother use to say when her driving made my tummy queazy.

It has to do with your inner ears... I still get motion sick, unless i'm the one driving

I get car sick easily, too. I've found that chewing gum helps a little. And if all else fails, I just close my eyes and take deep, cleansing breaths.

Hope that helps :)

It could be from an ear infection that you may not even know you have...I had a friend that happened to, not just in a car, but often at her desk or watching tv.

I have a lot of issues with vertigo and feeling nauseous. Something that has helped me is eating ginger. I keep a bag of crystallized ginger in my car and if I sense a bout of nausea coming on, I just slowly eat some while I drive. It has helped... and it's good for you!

I hope this helps. :)

Ginger sweets or ginger tablets. There's also an acupressure bracelet which you should be able to find in pharmacies or health food shops. Ask in a health food shop!
