Actually, it depends on the person.
Some people are very sensitive to swinging movements and some are not. Just try to prevent & if not, then go for pills before it happens ;)

Andy, my father had BPPV there are a couple of exercises you can do to address it if you have the same. One is the Eley maneuver and the other is the Sermont maneuver. His was particular severe and he also needed medication for a time but the maneuvers helped.

Here a link to a video of the first.

Hope this helps.

Cheers for that. This is what the doctor did when I was there. I thought he was just checking me. Glad to know and now I have way to remedy it. Thank you very much.

Wow I thought I was the only one who gets motion sickness but discovered through this topic that I am not unique. It is reassuring. What I do is eat light, drink a lot AND take Dizinil systematically. Thank you all for your contribution.

Also i prefer drinking the O2 drinks you see in the adnoc. You don't feel bloated as with water and it's more refreshing. I drink at least 3 on a trip and I don't feel ill. No caffeine.

As a long-time sailor, I know that there is NO ONE that cannot become motion sick or sea sick. It may take just the right wave patterns or smells or severe waves, but eventually everyone can get sick.

One thing I have learned from my time at sea is to try and use my legs or body to compensate for the motion of the vehicle or boat. Try to keep your head relatively motionless. At sea, that means I usually stand up with my legs flexed if I am feeling queasy or think I might. When driving, I don't keep my back against the seat when doing high-pitch manoeuvres...I lean forwards and back,and lean to the side if necessary to try and keep my head from bobbing about as the truck crests or dips. For example, I lean forwards towards the dash as I move over a crest, so that I can lean backwards as the car pivots over the top. This has the added advantage of aiding visibility over the hood of the FJ as I crest...lol.

Plain or salted crackers, or muesli bars are also good on your stomach, with water, sipped slowly not guzzled. You need to ensure to stay hydrated - the worst part of sea sickness on a boat is that hours of it WILL dehydrate you, and to make matters worse we are in a desert.

I have found that nicotene and alcohol do NOT help, and in fact are usually factors in getting motion sickness. Also avoid petroleum fumes and other vapours. The most sea sick I have gotten was after smoking a nice cigar at sea, and then having to put it out to go down and help fix the boat's diesel in a pitching sea when the engine shaft broke. Try making emergency repairs to keep your boat afloat in the Atlantic when all you want to do is suddenly throw up endlessly...

I also think a hit of Otravine nasal spray can uncongest your sinuses, which lessens the pressure in your head a bit and helps stave off motion sickness. That is not scientific, just my own experience with my own sinus conditions.
In the sand, there is truth.
