Unlike other common ailments that are difficult to detect unless they symptoms are severe, it is quite easy to know if you are suffering motion sickness. It does not require a professional diagnosis. If you feel ill only when you travel or when you engage in activities that involve motion, then that is a clear sign that you are suffering from motion sickness.
When should i see a doctor?
Most people who suffer from motion sickness find that it usually disappears after a few hours. However, if suffering from severe symptoms for more than 8 hours, then you should see your doctor immediately. There are many triggers of motion sickness and a doctor can help you identify the main ones and suggest the best possible treatment. While there are no special tests that the doctor will conduct, he will ask the right questions and present you with appropriate treatment options. You should also see a doctor if you have symptoms of dehydration from vomiting for long periods of time.
