xort Nobody has mentioned the accupressure wristbands. I've used them with good results on mild nausea.

As to questioning beforehand...how far in advance are you planning to bring this up (pun intended)? Asking about this just at boarding time might be a little late. A day or two in advance will give time to decide what to do.

I took a nephew out fishing. It was glassy calm but he puked repeatedly. But he refused to go in because he was having such a great time! And we only caught one fish.

SimonV Human beings instinctively seek to remain upright by keeping their centre of gravity over their feet. The most important way this is achieved is by visual reference to surrounding objects, such as the horizon. Seasickness often results from the visual confusion on a moving craft.

That explains why WOMBATS dont get sick.

They can even relieve active sea sickness if you have the person up in the cockpit where they can see the horizon and get fresh air (so the pills stay in).
Mythbusters did a show on motion sickness. They constructed a motion sickness chair based on NASA designs (I wonder what sadistic engineer figured that one out!) They tested different OTC motion sickness medicines and ginger. Ginger worked better than any of the OTC. It was a pretty funny episode if you don't mind watching people hurl.

Dark 'n Stormies are another good source of ginger. Candy is dandy.....

FullandBy Yep. Being sleep deprived is a big one for me as well.

I used to be able to say that. It only happened to me once and it was after getting little sleep the night before going out on a very rough day.

Ahaaa, redemption. It's not that I'm permanently as pissed as a parrot nor that I'm an uncoordinated oik. Oh no. Nyah Nyah Nyah.

The family Wombat all eat lots of ginger. Wonderful yummy stuff. Grated into carrot and apple juice (add celery and you have a wonder cure for gout, rheumatism,arthritis etc), naturally enough chopped up in stir fries and the like, grated with chillis with soy and mirren as a marinade for fish or chicken, covered in dark bitter chocolate for a tasty confectionary, it's all good.

My balance is restored.

Lancer28 It does! You'll love it and no foggy-head OTC junk....
