I've been getting motion sick (without actually vomiting) in the car and on the school bus for the past 5 days. I've never had a problem with motion sickness before. Now my head feels weird and I feel nauseous in moving vehicles. I'm female. Ideas?

Children are more susceptible to motion sickness than adults. More than half of children experience motion sickness when travelling by car ("carsickness"). Motion sickness is most commonly experienced when travelling by ship called seasickness.

Motion sickness is rare in those under 2 years of age, but is most common between ages 3 and 12. Women experience motion sickness more than men.

People who suffer from motion sickness should avoid the following before or during travel:

  • alcohol
  • dairy products
  • foods high in salt, protein, or calories
  • large meals
  • smoking
  • unpleasant odours

If you read or look at nearby objects, or look at things going by such as the scenery in your trip, motion sickness could get worse. It is better to focus on objects on the horizon.

Other treatments such as wristbands and magnets may be helpful, but there is little information available about their effectiveness.
