Motion sickness is a general feeling of illness, nausea, and other symptoms caused by movement. It occurs when one part of your balance-sensing system (inner ear, eyes, and sensory nerves) senses that your body is moving, but the other parts don't.
Some medicines can help prevent or treat the symptoms. But when symptoms start, they may not go away until after the motion stops.
