Motion Sickness - new names and research
« on: January 27, 2020, 10:47:29 PM »
I've always had pretty bad motion sickness (boat rides or even turbulent planes are really rough).  But even some movies and videos can be dizzying.  I always heard it was about the inner ear or something.  There's always been treatments like lying down, some pills, wristbands, looking far away, etc. 

Now there's a name and some treatments around: Neuro-Ocular Vestibular Dysfunction (NOVD) or the See-Sick Syndrome (SSS).  - https://visionhelp.com/the-see-sick-syndromewhen-visual-dysfunction-causes-motion-sickness/

Also, apparently motion-sickness and "cyber-sickness" are different, even though I end up getting dizzy from some movies anyway.  https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181023085654.htm
