Do you feel carsick when travelling ?

The reason why I don't have a driver's license is because every time I get into a car, I feel car sick. I start to vomit and feel nauseous I don't know what to do to make the pain stop. Sometimes when I travel a long distance it would take me two days to get back to normal. I tried many online remedies like laying off big meals or shutting my eyes down, but they didn't help. How about you ? Do you always feel carsick ?

I am carsick, but it is less strong then yours. I can't read in the car because it makes me feel nauseous. I use public transportation a lot and I have problems there. I can't read while travelling with the tram or bus. And I can stand or sit only the direction the vehicle goes, I can't do them in the opposite direction.
I always feel nauseas if I'm in the back seat of a car when on a long journey. Never get that feeling when I'm driving or in the front passenger seat! One of partners kids gets car sick someone told us to give her ginger biscuits! No idea why they work but she does seem better on long journeys!
@august18 as far as i know, it's better to sit upfront where your eyes can see/follow the road. also maybe it's better to listen to soothing music than read or watch anything on a screen (big or small). i hope the ginger works for you. maybe you can find ginger candy.

I suffered with motion sickness up to the age of 12, so did my sister, my son and now my granddaughter. I have been covered in vomit more times than I can remember. Although I don't get it now I feel slightly unwell after a long journey especially on a coach. I have found some brilliant travel sickness pills for my granddaughter.. They are called Stugeron 15 but I don't know if they are sold worldwide. You might be able to get them on prescription. My granddaughter never feels ill if I give her these even though she cannot even go a few miles down the road without them. They are often given to people who suffer from inner ear problems causing nausea.
I don't normally get car sick, but I used to do a lot of travel in buses, and used to get sick. At first I used to take travel sickness pills, but whilst they stopped the nausea they made me feel worse over all. Then I discovered ginger, just about the best anti-nausea thing there is. I would munch on crystalized ginger during the trip instead of lollies, and had no more problems.

The only time I ever felt carsick was when I was a kid. If I tried reading a book as a passenger while I was in a moving car, I'd get nauseous, although I never actually threw up from being carsick. So can I handle reading a book while in a car now? I don't know, as I haven't tried to do so since I was a child. And I'm not so sure I want to find out.
