Reference Motion sickness Opens New Window may cause:
- A general feeling of being unwell (malaise).
- Nausea or vomiting, or both.
- Cold sweating, which means you sweat even though you're not overheated.
- A pale appearance.
Symptoms usually go away soon after the motion stops. Sometimes it can take a few days for symptoms to go away. You may become used to motion during extended trips, such as on a cruise. If that happens, your symptoms may subside. But when you are back on land, the lack of motion can cause symptoms to return for a short time.
Usually, symptoms go away within 3 days of the end of a trip. If they do not, see your doctor. You may have another condition that causes nausea and vomiting, such as stomach flu or an inner ear problem.
