Car trips are part of the daily lives of many people, so being prone to dizziness can be a real problem. This sensitivity to movement, that results in physical discomfort, is known as motion sickness, a condition that can cause more problems in some people than in others.
Although there is no universal explanation for motion sickness, the most accepted one is the imbalance between sensory perceptions, that is, the difference between what you feel and what you see. This can lead to symptoms like nausea, vomiting, paleness, sweating, gastric discomfort, or belching.
