Dizziness and nausea
The state, familiar to all without exception, when dizzy and nauseous, as a rule, does not cause much concern, as it is often not associated with serious pathologies and passes on its own after a few hours, while the person does not even think about the causes and quickly forgets about what happened.

It is a disease of motion, and is so named because it was the first time it was met at sea. Some people are susceptible to it (according to statistics, from 5 to 10% of the population), and it is associated with the innate characteristics of the vestibular apparatus,although the exact causes of occurrence have not yet been clarified. One thing is known: those who are among those 10% suffer from it throughout their lives. We all know that such a state is observed when rocking motion in transport (cars, airplanes, ships) and on the carousel. What to do?
