However, women, migraine sufferers, children around the ages of 12, pregnant women and those diagnosed with inner ear illnesses seem more susceptible to motion sickness.

What is Motion Sickness?

Motion sickness, a common condition that affects millions of people, can put a damper on travel plans. It can occur during car, plane, train or boat travel (and even when watching a movie or playing video games).
