Sickness & Travels
Since 2011 we fly from Savannah GA to Maui at least once a month.
Since Aug 2016 – My problem is when we flying back to Savannah I end up getting violently sick to my stomach. Its only our 3rd and final flight from CLT to SAV. In December we flew to Budapest and I got sick on the 3rd flight entering Budapest. (btw they served a salmon sandwich on this flight and the smell didn’t help my stomach at all 🙂 )
I’m not sure whats going on and why. Its only when we fly east and on our last and final flight of our destination. Which is usually an hour flight
Of course I thought jetlag but it doesn’t happen when we fly west.
My Dr. gave me anti-nausea pills and that didn’t help at all.
Help!! I’m getting tired of getting sick. Maybe I should invest in barf bags… 🙂
I don’t know why you would get sick in one direction and not another, but you have my sympathies, as I get motion sickness very easily (and was always sick when flying up until the age of 18).
My recommendation would be to take ginger candies on board when you fly – they help settle a nauseous stomach (as does ginger ale, but you can’t really take that on board…)
That’s really an odd situation and it really sucks 🙁
Maybe it’s just something to do with having two connections in succession. It can be tough on the body.
I second [USER=1593]@SusanR[/USER]’s recommendation for the ginger candies. Also, maybe ask for ginger ale from the cabin crew?
What type of plane are you flying from CLT-SAV? Small planes, like small boats, cause many to have motion sickness which leads to nausea.
