As I have written in the past I have always had a problem with motion sickness, even before I had Meniere’s disease. When I was little I would always seem to get sick when we were starting out on our vacations. We usually went to the beach which took about 8 hours to get there and unfortunately I was sick most of the way! Now with the Meniere’s my motion sickness seems to get worse no matter what the ride is.
I read a comment the other day about a long plane ride and how it difficult to handle. For me even a plane ride of an hour and a half is long. It has been a while since I have been on a plane, maybe 3 years and that was particularly difficult. I’d had to think how long I could last on a plane now without getting sick.
It seems almost odd but the last boat ride that I was on really wasn’t that bad even though the boat was rocking considerably. (The boat wasn’t big) I worried that it might make me sick but it really didn’t.
A couple years ago I wrote a post on a vestibular syndrome called mal de- barquement, where someone feels as though they are still moving after riding a boat.
