Motion sickness is a common occurrence which nearly 80% of all people encounter. When a loss of balance occurs, people experience a dizzying feeling from the unease of motion. It is most common in young childhood, and most grow out of it by age three.

Motion sickness may be caused by throwing balance of the vestibular system and sensory organs off, or when skin receptors register one thing while actually encountering another. Inner ear is affected, which controls and regulates balance. Fear, anxiety, fumes or other odd smells may also trigger motion sickness.
