Patient Comments: Motion Sickness - Worst Case Ever

Describe your worst case of motion sickness.

Comment from: sweetman, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: December 19

My son has Down syndrome. We have flown on holidays for 10 years with no problems. Last year he was so ill on the plane that we have not gone away since. He was sick and was so distressed that we had to have assistance to get off the plane. Normally he is a great traveler be it in a car, bus, train, etc., we cannot understand why this has changed.
