What causes motion sickness?

Motion sickness can occur when the brain registers a mismatch between reality and expected reality. For example, if you’re sitting still in a car but your eyes perceive motion, your body senses a conflict and you may start to feel queasy.

What are symptoms of motion sickness?

• Nausea
• Feelings of warmth
• Sweating
• Hypersalivating
• Stomach awareness
• Vomiting (in extreme cases)
• Drowsiness

Frequently asked questions

About Amazon One Medical

What are my telehealth options for this condition?
Amazon One Medical offers multiple ways to get care from the comfort of your own home.

If you're a One Medical member and you live in a state where One Medical has offices, you can schedule Remote Visits with One Medical providers, which are billable to you or your health insurance. As a member, you can also get 24/7 on-demand virtual care with Treat Me Now or Urgent Video Chat via the One Medical app at no extra cost, no matter where you live in the United States.

If you're not a One Medical member, you can start a one-time virtual visit with Pay-per-visit. Pay-per-visit offers two types of telehealth for Amazon customers: video visits and message-only visits. Video visits are available for $49 in all 50 states and D.C. Message-only visits are currently available for $29 in 34 states.

To see your Pay-per-visit options, first choose your state.
Can I use my health insurance for Pay-per-visit?
Amazon One Medical doesn't accept health insurance for Pay-per-visit care. You can submit a claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement, but we can’t guarantee they’ll reimburse you for your one-time virtual visit.

If you normally use insurance to pay for your medications, you can do that with medications prescribed through all Amazon One Medical services. Amazon Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans. For other pharmacies, please talk with your pharmacy directly about insurance coverage. The cost of medication isn’t included in the cost of your visit.
What happens if my provider can't diagnose or treat my health issue through Amazon One Medical Pay-per-visit?
If your provider can’t diagnose or treat your health issue through Pay-per-visit, they may recommend that you see a primary care provider or a specialist for in-person care. If that happens, you won't be charged.
How does Amazon One Medical protect my health information?
Amazon One Medical protects customers’ protected health information (PHI) with stringent, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant privacy and security practices to keep information safe and secure.

We’re committed to building an infrastructure that fosters and promotes a culture of customer privacy and a strong commitment to safeguarding health information. We maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect customer information. This includes conducting rigorous security reviews and testing during product development, using encryption to protect data, and providing features like two-step verification to help customers protect their accounts.

Amazon does not sell customers’ personal information, including PHI.

About motion sickness

How can I reduce motion sickness naturally?
Some behavioral changes can help reduce the conflict between what your eyes are seeing and what your inner ear (vestibular system) is sensing. Experts recommend the following travel tips to reduce motion sickness:
• Change your posture to keep your head and shoulders still when you're in motion

• Avoid reading or looking at screens in moving vehicles

• Focus on a stable horizon or an unmoving object in the distance

• In cars, choose the driver's seat, or sit in the passenger seat and stare at the road as if you're the driver

• In boats, stick to the lower deck or midship cabins

• In trains and buses, choose a forward-facing seat

• In planes, choose a seat over the front edge of the wing
There's also some evidence that both ginger and acupressure on the P6 acupressure point on the inside of the wrist can alleviate the nausea associated with motion sickness.
Can I get motion sickness in virtual reality (VR)?
Yes. When you experience motion sickness while playing video games with a VR headset, it's called VR sickness or cybersickness. Cybersickness symptoms include nausea, dizziness, and disorientation.
Is there a cure for motion sickness?
No, there's no cure for motion sickness. But you can become desensitized to certain stimuli through repeated exposure. For example, the habituation training used for military pilots has success rates above 80%.
