Besides nausea, I have heart palpitations, sweating first in palms, then armpits, then everywhere.

I get nauseous from air fresheners, amusement park rides, boats, as a passenger in car or bus, when taking off and landing in plane and especially in turbulence. I also get very sick from anesthesia.

I have travel sickness whenever I travel in cars and vans. It seems like I get it mainly when I'm going for a long trip that involves hills. I don't like the smell of car freshener – it makes me sick. The thing that I've learned from traveling is to not sit quietly. When you're on a big bus, talk with someone or get up and walk in the bus – it makes me feel better.
