seasickness

 [se´sik-nes]
discomfort caused by the motion of a boat under way, a form of motion sickness. The unusual motion disturbs the organs of balance located in the inner ear. Symptoms are nausea and vomiting, dizziness, headache, pallor, and cold perspiration. Ways to help ward off seasickness include staying in the fresh air instead of in a stuffy room, eating lightly, and avoiding fatty, fried, or spicy foods. Antinausea medicines may be effective. If seasickness occurs, the sufferer should rest lying down with the head low, in a comfortable well ventilated place. Also written sea sickness.
