I mostly travel a lot by air for both mu personal and professional duties. While traveling I have met very interesting and experienced persons. On the base of my profession and my natural ability to communicate with others has led to many interesting topics.
Somehow Vertigo comes as a common topic for discussion. Most of the people say that while travel by both air and car causes them vertigo or it makes the vertigo condition worse.
One should understand vertigo is not a disease but a symptom. Do you want to know about vertigo? When a person has vertigo he suffers from the symptoms like spinning that occurs due to the disturbance of balance. There is no concrete reason for the cause of vertigo, it has variety of reasons.
Vertigo’s symptoms can include dizziness but not everyone with dizziness (lightheadedness) has vertigo. Vertigo is most often caused from a disorder in the peripheral vestibular system (inner ear structures). It can also be a result of a disorder in the central vestibular system (brainstem, cerebellum, vestibular nerve).
Due to Alfred Hitchcock classic most of the people confuse things between vertigo and fear of heights but both are different. This may due to the reason that symptom between both these conditions are bit common. An interesting fact many people who has the fear for height do not fear flying.
Vertigo problem happens suddenly and will last for less than a minute. Movements in head made suddenly are the major cause. BPPV is the most common type of vertigo but there different types vertigo.
Symptoms can include: nystagmus (shaking of the eye), nausea, vomiting and sweating. The attacks can stop or improve after a few weeks or months. However in some cases, they can persist for longer. Your doctor can correctly diagnose you and recommend special head and neck exercises to help prevent the onset of vertigo.
Many people who have this problem have the problem only in the position of their head while traveling. And this can bring in the symptoms for the sufferers.
Alcohol can induce temporary vertigo and should therefore be avoided if flying and especially if driving.
If a person is having this kind of vertigo then traveling can make this symptom worse. Anxiety or panic disorder can cause psychological disorder and in turn causes psychogenic vertigo. However, psychogenic vertigo is not common.
Motion sickness is also suffered by most travelers. The parts of inner that control balance can be affected by motion of travel. Traveling in boat mostly causes this but it can also caused by tarveling in auto and plane.
The outburst of symptom is quick as vertigo. The symptoms include nausea, dizziness, headache, cold sweats, hyperventilation (which could lead to faintness) and usually vomiting.
Motion sickness can be prevented by the following keeping your gaze steady and head as still as possible, not smoking, not drinking, not reading, and getting fresh air.
Motion sickness can be treated by many number of drugs. But those drugs will cause drowsiness and it will cause agitation in children
