I have the worst motion and travel sickness?

For as long as I can remember I have had what I can only describe as the worst motion sickness, when I was a little girl I would tell my parents that cleaning my room made me sick – because every time I would bend down and get up or be up and down cleaning the floor I would get nauseous. This followed me into adulthood, my first job in retail I would dread working the shop floor because it meant bending up and down to pick up clothes and feeling hot, dizzy, nauseous. I also get the world’a worst travel sickness, even on very short journeys, if I so much as look down at my phone for a nanosecond, or a backseat passenger asks me something and I turn around – instantly I feel nauseous enough that I could be sick any second. Lastly, when I have stand on the spot for longer than 10 minutes or so, I get so extremely hot and dizzy that I could faint any second, if I can’t get a seat on the train to work and I have to stand on the spot, sometimes it gets so bad I have to warn the people I’m near that I don’t feel good. The minute I sit down I start to recover and normality returns, also freezing cold air can help me get through the sick feeling. Like I say I’ve had this all my life and I have no explanation for it, but it’s starting to affect everything I do, I can’t even hoover my house without dreading the feeling. I started to notice it when I was around 8 or 9 and I started having to do chores like cleaning my room etc, and now I am 26. Can anybody shed light on this for me?

You need to do a brain angiography to check your middle and posterior cerebral artery, also a neck MRI to check vertebra basilar artery, from there I can guide you to the next step
Good Luck

this can be due to transient cerebral congenital insufficiency.
You need to get a CT angiography done to rule out any neurological cause.
Consult a neurologist.
Rule out hormonal and endocrinal insufficiency.

You are suffering benign paroxysmal positional vertigo which happens due to presence of some calcium like particles in the inner ear those move freely but gives wrong sense of position and alleviate nausea,flushes,dizziness and vertigo.
This can be treated with a positioning exercise done by a neurologist or a professional physiotherapist.
Feel better soon.

The symptoms that you are facing can be due to causes like Cervical Spondylarthrosis, peripheral vertigo caused by inner ear problems..
Consult an Otorhinolaryngologist or an ENT expert and get evaluated..
Investigations like x ray or MRI of cervial spine, inner ear examination can be done..
You can be advised neck straps for reducing sudden abrupt movement of neck..

Hope this helps..
