Getting Motion Sickness easily

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello Everyone,

For the past 2 weeks, I've been getting Motion Sickness really easily. Literally, any movement or moving objects could trigger Motion Sickness. I can't even drive for 5-10 mins without getting sick. Can't play video games or watch any movies either. I have tried taking Dramamine 50mg but it does not seem to help. I used to be able to do these without any problems.

It all happened after coming back from New Year's Eve party in a club. Could loud music be a trigger (Music was really loud up to the point I had to close my ears)? Does anyone else have the same symptoms? I would appreciate any help.

    need to see a doctor to rule out anything serious. with that being said could be fluid in your inner ear, ear infection. meclazine works better for the dizziness/vertigo. some places sell it over the counter or doc can prescribe it.

    See a doctor and find the root cause.

    If you had even a slight infection, it could have spread to your inner ear and affect your center for balance. Even if you do not feel sick.

    It sucks, it's annoying and it can last for several weeks.

    Once you have it you could become prone to it. I have it and what helps me through it is steaming the face, inhaling vapor and heating the ears. It helps drain the sinuses.

    Another thing is alcohol consumption. I don't drink, so I've never had this problem, but my aunt has. And it has nothing to do with being drunk. She can get it from a glass of wine.

    And of course, food allergies and intolerance can cause mucus production and affect your center of balance.

      I must disagree.

      Not only have I been advised by doctors to use steam inhalation (plain boiling water will do, but it is somewhat more efficient with some salt) for sinus infection, my experience is such that steaming helps drain the sinuses, thus freeing the passages and lowering the pressure in the middle ear.

      Drinking plenty of fluids (water, herbal teas with no sugar/sweeteners...).

      as long as a doctor has confirmed its a ear infection heat can relieve pain. if it turns out the pain is being caused by a abscessed tooth you can be making it much worse.

    First thing I would do is make an appointment with your doctor just to make sure you don't have an ear infection or something going on with your sinuses.

    I hope you feel better. 🌸
