I feel you. I get sick even when I am driving. I can easily say I am the most motion sick person in the whole world. After a trip to Puerto Vallarta I decided I was done traveling. I was tired of living in a Dramamine fog. Even the non-drowsy version would make me tired. I would always think I can’t go on this excursion or that trip there’s too much motion and I don’t want to be sick and miserable the whole time. But it’s no fun to be left behind. Here are some tips I have found to help.
-Ice Water. I can’t chew it during travel with my sister because she has “misophonia” For those of you who don’t know what that is let’s just say mealtime/snack time can be torture. The sounds of other people eating chomping, chewing, gurgling, slurping can send them into an instantaneous, blood-boiling rage. When we were little I would wake her up in the middle of the night to the sound of my teeth grinding. It was no Bueno. Sorry about that sister.
-Ice, Water, Salt, Lime
Traveling in Puerto Vallarta on a pirate ship I got so deathly sick and a kind pirate who saw me spending the majority of my time hanging my body over the side of the ship mixed up this concoction. Mix 2 teaspoons salt, half a lime in a glass of water and fill with ice. Sip
-Natural Motion Sickness Patches
I wear these behind my ears and they last 2-3 days even with shower or swimming.
These are a little spicy on the tongue but are calming to the stomach.
Basically ginger in a pill. NO DROWSYNESS!
-Pressure point bands
-Ginger Ale With Ice
On the plane be sure to order ginger ale with ice. Ginger helps to calm the stomach
-ZenTrip Motion Sickness Relief Strips
I love these! They are like the Listerine breath strips. They don’t taste super amazing but neither does vomit
I even use these products together if I get really sick. My favorite are the patches then I’ll pop in strip and call it a day!
