Constant Motion Sickness?

Messages

Does anyone else suffer from this or have any ideas?

I wonder I am getting constantly motion sick, not dizzy, but the nausea side of symptoms.

It is mainly set off by going on laptop, iPad or phone, I use my wheelchair indoors so when I wheel around on it but this is less so I think, both being pushed in it and being in the car is bad especially the car, I am housebound except the occasional 15 mins or so around the block which makes me feel sick, less so if I wheel myself.

I feel particulary worse at night and it seems to build up sometimes in the today and unleash itself more at night.

I never actually throw up but feel awful.

Any ideas would be welcome, or any questions.

Thank you for reading.

Could be visual, so it's a good idea to have your eyes checked even if you think they're okay. Could also be an inner-ear problem, maybe developing from congestion because of infection or allergies, so you might also want to have a doctor check that.

The kind of problem you describe could easily be unrelated to ME/CFS and completely treatable by a GP, so it's worth having it checked out by your GP before you do much else.

Of course, if it turns out not be be something relatively simple and IS related to ME/CFS, then treating it could be much harder. :(

Have you asked an ENT to check you for vestibular problems?

Best,

I had this in my first few years of cfs. I was told to take Bonine (otc seasickness med).

Fwiw tho most of my symptoms cleared up after eliminating my food intolerances. Esp gluten. I apparently had gluten ataxia.

Hope you find a solution. Tc .. x

Thank you for all the replies. I plan on seeing someone in regards to ENT and eyes also, but I am pretty much housebound so I hope they will come to me some how.
