Motion Sickness

Nausea caused by motion, commonly called car sickness. It can affect anybody if the conditions are adverse enough.

Symptoms

Sweating, dizziness, drowsiness, vomiting and nausea while in a moving vehicle
Pale face
Symptoms may be preceded by yawning, hyperventilating, salivation, profuse cold sweating, drowsiness
Symptoms usually subside either once your body adjusts to your mode of travel or shortly after the trip ends.

Causes

Motion sickness results from an inconsistency of the information reaching the brain from the sensory organs. Your inner ear detects motion more readily than your eyes respond to the visual cues of the scenery moving past. This confuses your central nervous system which reacts to this stress-producing phenomenon by activating the nausea centre in your brain.
