Motion sickness is the body's response to a conflict among sensory receptors in the eyes, ears, and body. Common triggers include travel by airplane, boat, or car which will cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, or uneasiness. 

Over-the-counter treatments include Ginger gum/candy, Dimenhydranate/Dramamine, or Diphendydramine/Benadryl; the latter two can cause drowsiness. A prescription medication, like Scopolamine in a topical patch, can be used for extended travel. 

If you have passed out due to your symptoms, then please visit : (1) the ER, (2) an Urgent Care Clinic, or (3) your Primary Care Physician.
