Motion sickness
 
Standard Definition

Motion sickness is the body's response to real, perceived, or anticipated movement. It is typically experienced on a moving boat, train, airplane, car, or amusement park ride. Although this condition is fairly common and transient, it may be a significant problem for people with an occupation that requires constant movement, such as a flight attendant, pilot or ship crew member.

Morning sickness of pregnancy may be worsened by motion, may have some similar causative factors and may be alleviated by similar treatments, however it is advised that you seek the guidance of your healthcare practitioner before embarking on any treatment.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Motion sickness occurs when the body, a tiny structure in the inner ear, and the eyes send conflicting signals to the brain in reaction to movement on/in an automobile. The inner ear may sense rolling motions that the eyes cannot perceive, and, conversely, the eyes may perceive movement on a "virtual reality" simulation ride that the body does not feel. Sometimes, even anticipating movement can cause anxiety and symptoms of motion sickness (for example before the plane takes off).
