    Default Motion Sickness

    I used to get car sick all the time when traveling by car or bus when I was a kid... It has subsided almost completely now but I still get car sick when the driver is driving aggressively...

    Could this be correlated with having low Se...?

    No this has nothing to do with Se, or any cognitive function. It's a phisological response and nothing more.

    Unfortunately, I can. I got very, very sea-sick when I was on a large boat once.. however, small boats seem fine with me. Also, never when I'm driving.. Usually I get a little car sick when I'm riding passenger over hills and dips, and almost always in the back seat of extended rides.

    I don't seem to get affected that much when I am the driver but affected more when at the back seat too...

    Not from cars. Planes don't bother me, either. I can't handle spinning or watching video that spins or does other weird things. And I've been seasick.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I seem to only get motion sickness from riding in cars, and sometimes buses. The lower the car is to the ground, the worse it is. I can avoid motion sickness if I drive, which is why I prefer to drive whenever I can.

    Not experienced motion sickness in my life. I attribute it to sending an inordinate amount of time being dizzy as a small child. I love spinning...

    I'd have to say this doesn't have to do with type at all. Some people are more or less prone to it based on a host of physiological factors.

    I'm fine on rollercoasters and anything like that.

    I only experience motion sickness if I read in a car/bus/boat plane, or if certain people are driving instead of me, & weaving unpredictably through heavy urban traffic, where there's that combination of aggressive motion side to side but also the abrupt stop n' go as well. That puts me right over. Never happens if I drive myself.

    Meclizine (over-the-counter medication - trade name Bonine) helps counter the imbalance perceived by the vestibular system when we experience motion sickness or vertigo, etc. Taken 15min-1/2 hour before you get in the car prevents the motionsickness altogether, ime. Relieves existing symptoms of motion sickness within 15-20min. Bonine comes in a chewable tablet, which works a bit faster than other OTC meclizine products. Mentions drowsiness can occur, but I've never experienced that, & I'm rather sensitive to sedatives.

    Anyway, hope this is useful. Carsickness sucks.

    Only when unable to sight a skyline (or distant set point) while moving. When riding as a passenger in a vehicle during low light times, and inside ships (Space Mountain or the teacups in Disneyland).

    I absolutely hate roller coasters.

    And yet a car on the highway goes faster than the average roller coaster.
