Carsickness After Falling From A Height?
, I want to ask.
Hello Sasmita, thank you for asking.
Motion sickness is caused by a disturbance in the body's balance system. The body's balance system consists of a central balance in the brain and balance of the edges in the inner ear. When our bodies change position linearly (back and forth, sliding right and left, up and down) balance organs in the inner ear called the utriculus and saculus will detect changes in body position. When we change angular position (rotating) the balance organ in the inner ear called the semicircular canal will detect changes in body position. The brain as the central balance organ has the task of combining changes in position detected by the ear, with images captured by the eye, and changes experienced by muscles and joints.
Motion sickness occurs when there are problems with the inner ear such as infection or there is debris cells in the balance organ. This results in the ear not detecting changes in position properly. Vehicle sickness can also occur if there is a brain disorder that causes input of information from the eyes, ears, and muscles are not combined and presented properly. Disorders such as the presence of a mass in the brain or bleeding in the brain that affects the center of balance can cause this. In some people also found the incidence of balance disorders such as vertigo, due to problems in the cervical spine.
You should consult a neurologist to find out the cause for sure. The doctor will do a series of balance tests, X-rays or CT-scan and MRI if necessary. In the meantime, you can overcome this by trying relaxation methods while driving, close your eyes, or open your eyes and look at a distant point that is stable, and can be helped with the consumption of antihistamine drugs, dimenhydrinate, which are sold freely. Drinking pure ginger water and mint leaves is also believed to help relieve symptoms. Or you can ask your doctor for acupuncture and acupressure to overcome this problem.
Hopefully you can find the right solution. Regards.
