How does motion sickness become worse?
When motion sickness appears, it will usually become worse after a short period of rest and mild exercise. In general, people experiencing motion sickness will be generally less alert and more irritable. This is because of the higher levels of chemicals in their bodies.
However, motion sickness should be treated by someone with the experience of motion sickness. If someone experiencing this is a medical professional or a doctor, then an individualized solution may be used to manage the symptoms.
Categories of motion sickness
There are many types of people that can be diagnosed with motion sickness. One of these types of motion sickness is the following:
The more severe forms of motion sickness tend to include extreme muscle weakness and dizziness (also known as "pins and needles"). This type of motion sickness is most obvious when standing.
The first signs of motion sickness in these cases is often a sense of being drowsy. This is often followed by vomiting.
People who have experienced these two types of motion sickness should seek medical attention immediately if they have any other symptoms. These people may be experiencing nausea and vomiting without any other symptoms of motion sickness. They may have severe pain in the joints or neck (a pinched nerve). They may have loss of feeling throughout the body.
If they are on opioids and they are experiencing both vomiting and nausea, then they may have an overdose or have taken too much.
How does motion sickness cause motion sickness?
Motion sickness can occur because the nervous system has not made enough adjustments in time to balance the body's constant demands of running. If this wasn't done, it can result in motion sickness symptoms.
The cause of motion sickness is not fully understood, nor is it as simple as "you get it when you run." Many other reasons may lead to this type of motion sickness.
Some of the things that can be responsible for this type of motion sickness include;
excessive fatigue from work or work related injuries.
excessive exercise on a regular basis.
lack of rest and mild activity.
lack of sleep.
lack of eating enough.
lack of social interaction.
lack of adequate nutrition.
Some of those may appear to be normal situations that can lead to sickness. Other times, it may be a result of the underlying brain disease that causes depression, anxiety, or other issues.
If you have a neurological condition that can cause motion sickness for you, please contact your doctor for evaluation.
What happens if I can run, but the symptoms aren't severe enough to prevent me from running or not running?
Unfortunately, most people don't manage their own motion sickness or get enough rest to effectively manage their symptoms.
