Motion Sickness

Motion Sickness

Is motion sickness common amongst some of you? It’s like every time I’m in a moving car, I feel really sick. i.e., headache, nausea.

Or even if I’m staring at my phone for too long, the light bothers me.

I used to get motion sickness as a kid and a teen. I used to read in a car with smoking parents..yuck! Now I don't have it. As for my tablet, I have glasses that are tinted as I am light sensitive. I always have been. I have used gray lightly tinted sunglasses as a stop gap when I get really achy eyes.
You might want to check with an eye doctor to see if anything is off kilter.

I get bouts of vertigo, usually mild, but the odd severe ones. Scrolling on the computer can give me sudden motion sickness, or watching someone else scroll. In the car, I'm ok as long as I'm not in the back seat. My eyes are also sensitive to bright light and get sore and dry and achy. I don't like bright light in the evenings, I switch on a few lamps instead of a main light.

Never motion sick myself in a car, but I have heard from others that they prefer to do the driving because when they are the driver they don't experience motion sickness.
