Please let me know is it common or should I do something? Are air sickness and vomiting common in flight? How can I treat it?
@gunak Hello, yes it is normal and many people suffer from motion sickness and there is nothing wrong with you. You take the following tips to treat it-
- You can choose your seat- Choose a seat between the plane’s wings or closer to the front of the airplane, where the ride tends to be more stable. Avoid sitting in the back of the plane.
- Relax- Anxiety and stress make motion sickness worse and can make it last longer. If you have a fear of flying, consider learning meditation or deep-breathing exercises to help you stay relaxed before and during your flight.
- Do not eat spicy food before the flight, and
- Take the over-the-counter medication prescribed by the doctor.
