Pre-Motion Motion Sickness. Whaaat?

Do you feel nauseous just thinking about riding in the backseat of the car?

What about when you picture yourself standing on the deck of a boat on a rolling sea?

Don’t worry, that feeling is not uncommon!

If you have experienced motion sickness as a passenger in a car, or when you’ve been out on a boat, then you almost certainly have a memory of it.

It’s the memory of the motion sickness that causes what’s called “anticipatory nausea and vomiting.” All before you even get into a car or step onto a boat.

In other words, you get motion sickness before there’s any motion.

You can prevent this anticipatory nausea and vomiting in the same way that you do motion sickness:

  • Keep your eyes on the horizon
  • Allow fresh, cool air to gently blow in your face
  • Don’t read or watch a screen
  • Eat small, frequent meals, but nothing greasy
  • Stay hydrated
  • Wear a Reliefband to stop symptoms before they start
