I get severe travel sickness, sometimes its really bad, sometimes im ok and sometimes I don't get it at all, I was wondering will I grow out of this or will it be around all my life, no one else in my family suffers from it. And also when i learn to drive will my sickness play up a lot more, i use travel bands and previously used the pills and patches, can anyone suggest any ways i can cope with it in general whether im driving or just a passenger, I've suffered with it since i was tiny, any help would be appreciated. I can't use the pills anymore as my doctor said it affects my treatment on my anti depressants so i stick with the bands and the patches are only for extremely long journeys i ever get travel sickness on a 30 minute journey.
i use to have travel/motion sickness and had to take gravol all the time but since i got my license and started driving i have not been sick at all. i find that a lot of my sickness had to do with a loss of control. as long as i'm driving and in control of the vehicle i'm not sick. if someone else is driving i feel sick and sometimes we have to pull over or open some windows to get air.
I agree, my nausea used to be terrible if other people were driving, even if I'm in the front. I think it has a lot to do with the way people drive, when my mum drives I can't last five minutes without making her pull over, but other people have been fine before. It's not to do with how badly they drive either as my mum is actually a good driver. As soon as I started driving my nausea went, though I still almost always get it in other peoples cars. Control is probably the answer.
