u/nickehl · 2 pointsr/Diablo

I experience a similar effect when I play Minecraft. I'm only good for about an hour before it starts to set in. If I continue to play it only gets worse.

I never have figured out any game settings to alleviate this issue. I have. however, found some remedies that help me to get my minecraft fix!

Medications like Dimenhydrinate (the brand name id Dramamine, but if you look/ask for the drug name I just listed, you can get it at half the cost from your local pharmacy) are a big help for me.

Another thing that I've found to work well for me personally are Sea Bands. These little guys are awesome. They apply pressure to a pressure point on your wrists. I don't pretend to understand why they work, but they do. It is different for each person though so they may be more or less effective for your mom. Some advice I would offer you though is if she does try them, put them on like 15-20 minutes before she plays. For me, it seemed to help more when I wore them in advance.

One last piece of advice I can offer is in regards to screen/monitor size and full-screen mode. One of the things that helps me with Minecraft when I'm not using one of the other remedies is to alter the screen mode. I have a 24" monitor that I play on so when I'm planning on playing Minecraft, I put the game in windowed mode and resize the window to about 1/2 the screen size. Having a smaller screen seems to help with how quickly the nausea sets on for me.

Minecraft is the only game in my collection that makes me sick and it drives me nuts because it's one of my favorites. I hope that my tips can help you play with your mom! I would like to add though that I'm certainly not a doctor, so take my tips with that in mind. And your mom should probably read the warnings/consult her doctor before she takes the pills.

u/-OckhamsRazorScooter · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

You are incredibly sweet! For morning sickness, it really depends. Nausea can be triggered by so many things (as I'm sure you know, since you've been pregnant before) but there seems to be a general consensus about ginger-related things. Preggi-Pops and Tummydrops were my favorites.

Honestly, I just liked having things that made me feel refreshed. A humidifier/diffuser with a few essential oils would be awesome for aromatherapy - a little pricey but she can use it for anything.

If she's mentioned ANYTHING that has helped her with morning sickness, see if you can transform that into a gift. For example, having a cool cloth on my face and neck helped so I purchased one of those hot/cold eye masks from Walgreens.

Good luck and let me know if any of those suggestions help. :)

u/FelipeFritschF · 1 pointr/virtualreality

It might, but not a lot yet. Hardware IPD adjustment is the most noticeable help, plus general optimizations that can help keep FPS consistent or even higher like foveated rendering, but Index doesn't have all of that tech, as well as brute force specs like refresh rate, but that might be a year or two away in consumer devices. Weight and format also influence it. I remember reading about this really crazy tech that would send electric signals to your brain to simulate the feeling of movement. Individual game optimizations can also help.


There is also this wristband thingy that claims to help with it, but I don't know how much it works


This video is quite comprehensive, however it is from the long-gone age of... 2017. Funny how outdated it already it is, but it still helps explain:

u/naranjadiscoteca · 2 pointsr/fixmydiet


Awesome that you're trying to get healthy. As someone who lived across the street from a McDonalds for the first 16 years of my life, I get you. It's so easy and once you get into that habit, it's super hard to get out. And I've always had a great metabolism, so it didn't physically show, but by the time I was 17 I had high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Not awesome things to have!

First question I have is, when you're experiencing nausea, does the nausea make you throw up all the time, or is it often just that feeling of needing to throw up? My mom is someone who, when feeling nauseous, makes herself throw up so that she doesn't have to feel that way anymore - that's not great for your body. If you can avoid throwing up, try to - a lot of the time nausea can pass. If you find it doesn't, try to find things that relieve the feeling instead. Ginger is great - try ginger candies like these:

A lot of people recommend cutting soda out completely or switching to diet, but as someone who LOVES soda and HATES diet soda, what I do is keep soda for weekends and special occasions. Switch to water for meals, which will suck for awhile, but will get better over time. It helps if your water is as cold as you can get it, preferably with ice in it - taste buds don't taste cold as well as warmer stuff, so the water will taste better cold if you don't particularly enjoy drinking it in the first place. And go SLOW with water. More water in your diet is important - but if you drink too much too fast, especially when you're not used to it, you can feel sick.

I like breakfast foods, hate eating in the morning. I feel full when I wake up and the thought of food is gross. SO, find something light that you DO like to eat, and eat it a little later - whenever you finally feel hungry. It should be easier to do this in college since your schedule is more flexible. Alternatively, have snacks on you, even if they're lame snacks (Granola bars, 100 calorie cookie packets, crackers).

If I were you, since you don't usually cook and aren't used to non-preprepared foods, I wouldn't worry too much about counting calories or eating only health foods yet. Going light on junk food, fast food, and soda will already cut a ton of calories - so don't worry about gaining weight by switching foods. If you ARE worried, anyway, just watch your portions. Never eat until you feel stuffed or gross. Eat lots of tiny meals instead of 3 big ones. Split your meals into snacks (Have a salad. Then an hour later have a piece of chicken. Maybe eat half your sandwich at 11am, and the other half at 1pm. Eat a snack a few hours before dinner, and eat light during dinner.) You don't want to feel like you're always hungry, but you also don't want to feel bloated.

Start with easy to cook foods that sound tasty or are home-cooked versions of foods you already like. (Chicken cutlets? Homemade mac and cheese?) Also, look for healthier versions of the boxed food you like - Trader Joe's makes a pretty damn good and healthier boxed mac & cheese.

Also, add more rice and fiber to your diet - that will help a LOT with stomach problems.

I get a ton of stomach/bathroom problems when I'm anxious. For awhile I thought I had a medical condition like IBS, but I realized that it's just my anxiety irritating my stomach - so, I make sure I have GasX and Pepto pills on me at all times so that I have that as a nice safety net.

Try lots of stuff. If you try and don't like a vegetable, don't make yourself eat it. Don't try a veggie in a way you know you won't like it - if you think you'll like broccoli and cheese but know you won't like it plain, try it with cheese first (or heavily seasoned, or with soy sauce, etc). I know that's not as healthy, but work your way in, or you'll have a much harder time. You can work your way to the healthiest options slowly.

u/Casserole5286 · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hi! Chemo survivor here! (Disclosure: I went through chemo for an auto immune disease, not cancer).

I would steer away from books, actually. Reading, watching TV, and anything where I had to focus my eyes made me sick.

  • this simple acupuncture band helped. But I survived off of audible tor entertainment.

  • A friend of mine bought my audible subscription, and then also got a bunch of our friends to give me their logins so I could listen to books they’d already purchased without having to use my credits, which was really thoughtful.

  • My biggest saving grace were essential oils- not because I believed they would cure me, but because every little smell also made me nauseous. Wild Thera makes a bunch of different types of balms with oils and beeswax, which I carried everywhere to mask the smells of the word.

  • If you’re willing to drop a pretty penny and the friend doesn’t already have AC and/or a HEPA air purifier, those are both crucial. Chemo made me sweat a TON, and I couldn’t sleep through the night unless it was 5 degrees. The hepa air filter is just to lower the risk of infection.

  • Ergonomic pillows, leg bolsters, etc. she’s going to spend a lot of time in bed, so it’s important she’s properly supported.

  • Sleep Mask

  • Ice Packs/Heating pad

  • Coloring books with colored pencils

  • travel scrabble

  • a cozy blanket or sweatshirt. She’ll probably have a PICC line put in, meaning they’ll need to access her collarbone ish area so off the shoulder sweaters are great.

  • socks with anti slip bottoms -the hospital will make you wear their scratchy ones if she gets admitted with regular socks

  • sour and hard candy

    I think those are all the things I wanted, other than my friends to take me to chemo. I liked having a friend go with me because it passed the time faster having someone to talk with.

    Edit: whoever said weed has it right. It really helped, a ton. I wouldn’t smoke it, but some of my favorite hard candies and gummies were weed candy. I live in Seattle though, so it’s probably more accessible.
u/Painted_Stars · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I love headache helpers! They make me feel sooooo much better whenever I have motion sickness. Speaking of which, [these] ( are what I find really relaxing. Kind of weird, but I get really bad motion sickness, especially when playing video games. I have no idea why. But when I put those on I can feel all the sickness melt away. Also, I like [this] ( for late-night showers. I love having the bathroom dark, but without onbe. I'd probably slip on something and bust my head open. But whatever. I dont really mind any sorts of patterns or things. I like cutesy things, like the pattern you had with trees and clouds, but it doesnt really matter. And have you ever had flax pancakes? I dont know why, but I LOVE them. They're usually pretty dry, but its nothing some maple syrup cant fix!

u/ErinGlaser · 1 pointr/travel

Okay. I'm here for this.

I've tried everything for this because I always suffer from motion sickness but I enjoy doing things involving motion-- planes, boats, cars, etc.

Ginger can work, so try drinking some ginger ale and, if you're a fan of ginger, carry some ginger candy with you on the plane. Dramamine often works for me and that's an easy go-to, just make sure you take it 30 minutes before the plane takes off and prepare to get sleepy. Some people swear by the pressure wristbands but they never worked for me. I even tried an electronic relief band that's supposed to interrupt the signal your stomach sends to your brain telling you to feel sick, but it's uncomfortable, made my hand spasm, and ultimately gave me blisters. The most effective treatment for me BY FAR has been the transdermal scopolamine patch. It's a time-release patch you wear on your neck behind your ear and it's good for three days. It's AMAZING-- it's all I use now. Almost no side effects-- no drowsiness at all-- but make sure you wash your hands after applying it because if you get the medication from the patch in your eye it'll temporarily dilate your pupil. It's a prescription, too, so you'd need to get your GP to prescribe it, but it's definitely worth the hassle. I recently took a cruise from Buenos Aires to Elephant Bay, Antarctica through notoriously bad seas-- not to mention all the flying to get to SA in the first place-- and the patches made the entire experience a DELIGHT.

Best of luck to you!

u/paladinparty · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Definitely look into medication from your doctor! Some may work better than others. The medication my doctor prescribed me didn't work so great :/ Ended up sticking it out and lived off crackers and lemon water with a ton of ice cubes for weeks. Even with the medicine, this was really still the only stuff I could handle.

I hope it goes away soon! It's absolutely miserable. By week 15 I was feeling closer to normal, and it slowly improved since then :) but I definitely got to my mental breaking point around week 12 or so. :( Try to hang in there!!

I've heard some great things about these little candies, that you can order online that have some ginger, I think, that have good reviews to help alleviate morning sickness. I didn't get around to ordering them myself, but I heard good things about them!

u/l0velike_winter · 3 pointsr/TeenMomOGandTeenMom2

preggie pops!! they were a lifesaver for this pregnancy, I’ve been sick since the pee stick dried & only started feeling better at like 26 weeks. Oh and diclegis, if you can afford it. It was covered by insurance for my first, but not this one & it made a world of a difference.

Good luck & congrats momma!! Sending good vibes your way!! It flies by so try to enjoy it, even if it’s miserable 😉

u/thesmelliestfart · 3 pointsr/leukemia

Disposable vomit bags saved me from a lot of cleaning..

Maybe some stuff to make showering easier..

Easy to eat/prepare foods for snacking in-between meals. I don’t know if it was this way for anyone else but, I’d often have trouble keeping food down. Having easy things to munch on a bit after evacuating my stomach was nice.

Fresh towels by the bedside was nice for nights I would wake up sweating, which was often and annoying.

One edit:
If you’re considering vacuum sealed food storage you might also be the type(like me) who would enjoy the peace of mind cooking certain foods using sous vide might offer, as it allows you to control the exact temperature your food reaches. Although this might be a rather expensive route.

u/BipolarWithBaby · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I’m so sorry you’re having such a rough go. :( Whoever decided to call it morning sickness was very cruel for giving us that expectation.

I’ve only thrown up maybe 3 or 4 times now (and I’m 9 weeks tomorrow), but I’m nauseous almost constantly. I’ve gotten a lot of relief from sucking on ginger candies , drinking peppermint tea, Preggie Pop Drops, and eating very small meals throughout the day when the nausea lets up a little bit.

If you’re having trouble eating enough, I’d definitely recommend some protein shakes and Clif bars. When I know I need some calories/protein/sugar, those two things help a lot. And since they’re generally small portions with a lot of nutrition, I feel they hold me over. I’ve also really enjoyed smoothies when I feel my blood sugar might be low but I can’t handle a full meal.

I hope this helps, and that you find some relief soon!

u/justanotherikealamp · 3 pointsr/Anxiety

Omg, I so relate. I'm terrified of vomiting and when I start to feel panicky, it's the first thing I freak out about! I'm so sorry to hear you're suffering so much. I think it's so important to reflect on why you are so scared of vomiting? As for me, I have Complex PTSD, BPD, and GAD. My anxiety is so hard to cope with, and I have trauma surrounding vomiting. I talked to my therapist about it and she's trying to help me realize that vomiting is a normal part of being a human. And that vomiting from a panic attack, illness, etc, is very far removed from the source of my trauma/fears surrounding nausea/vomiting. Pregnant women sometimes vomit every morning from morning sickness, people vomit if they feel nauseous from being on boats/planes/cars. Vomiting feels so horribly scary and miserable, and it feels like you've totally lost control!! But it will not kill you. It's discomfort, but you only ever have to experience that discomfort one moment at a time.

I've gone through spells of intense nausea for hours, with little to no emotional support, and I can tell you that it was hell on earth for me with my anxiety/panic problems. So I completely relate. hug

Aside from working it out in your head (why am I so scared of nausea/vomiting? how can I help myself remember that I won't die and it's a normal part of being human?), here are some other ideas that might help:

  • Chew anti-nausea gum
  • Use something like this
  • Maybe buy one of those anti-nausea wristbands
  • Maybe write down on a sheet of paper in pretty pens, that discomfort and nausea/vomiting are normal and okay and that you won't die, and that you'll be okay
  • Maybe get a stress ball or stuffed animal you can squeeze if you're feeling really scared of nausea
  • Please discuss all of this with a good psychologist if you haven't already, if you're able

    When I get scared and nauseous, I tend to repeat things over and over, out loud, like "please help, help, help, help, help, I'm so scared, I'm so scared, oh my god, no, no, no, no." I relate to you so much and I feel for you so much. Please feel free to PM me if you wanna talk about it more.

    Edit: Wanted to add that when I'm really nauseous, pacing the floor or walking outside helps. Sometimes just changing the environment can help a little and moving your body, can help.
u/DinkyyDoo · 1 pointr/CasualUK

My Mom has cancer and is currently undergoing chemo again to try and push it back (she has a brain tumour).

We’ve found that Sea-Bands have helped with the sickness. This could all be psychosomatic but she hasn’t felt sick when wearing them and her appetite (which went terrible) has returned as she feels able to eat.

My Mom’s also found she’s developed a problem with mint when brushing her teeth so I brought her some unflavoured toothpaste from Amazon and she’s been fine with that. She says it’s a little powdery but bearable.

Grease can also be an issue, like the smell of grease in the house can make you heave if you’re already feeling ill. So just be wary if you’re a big fried chip fan.

However, no two people are the same and hopefully you’ll sail through your chemo. Just remember to eat what you want, when you want it. You don’t have to eat big meals if you don’t want them. Take everyday as it comes and remember to smile even when feeling down.

You’ll be amazed at what smiling to yourself in the mirror can do for your mood.

Good luck honey x

Combating simulator sickness by utf8decodeerror

I've posted this in r/oculus already, but I'm copying here to get viver's take on it as well.


I'm reaching out here to see what products/solutions other redditors use to combat simulator sickness.

I've had bad motion sickness ever since I was a kid. A twenty minute car ride used to have me in tears, often vomiting as a child. As I got older, my motion sickness has gone away for the most part but I've recently been reexperiencing it when I use my HMD.

To combat motion sickness, I've been using dramamine which has worked perfectly at eliminating motion sickness. However, I don't care for the drowsiness it often brings. I'm also not keen on the idea of taking drugs every time I strap into vr.

Some of my favorite vr games make me the most sick, like To the Top, Onward, Edge of Nowhere, etc. Even if I don't have qualms with self medicating with dramamine and putting up with the side effects, I would like to be able to share these experiences with my friends without having to give them dramamine as well. Most are hesitant to use it to begin with, and if they don't take up my offer on it, their first experience can be entirely ruined by motion sickness.

I recently ran across this product on Amazon which has a lot of very good reviews for combating motion sickness. If it does work, it would also allow me to share vr experiences with friends without feeling guilty about making them take drugs or dealing with being sick. I'll probably pick one up because if it works, it's worth the $100 to me and if it doesn't, I can just return it.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has tried this or a similar product that worked for them or if you have some other technique that has helped you.

Im so sorry and I wish I could help you but I very rarely get motion sickness. Apparently sickness bands help👉 Sea-Band Nausea Relief Wrist Band: Drug Free Nausea Relief

u/_shinything · 7 pointsr/Aerials

Yes, all the ginger. I found these to be the most effective for me.

It sucks, but you just need to keep doing it to build up tolerance. Set aside five minutes at the end of each training session and just spin on your hoop to both sides. Focus on your hand or a static point on the hoop instead of staring off into space.

I'm really sensitive to motion and unfortunately because spinning is so crucial in straps, I really had to really work to build up a tolerance for it. I would force myself to spin every time I trained and then immediately go throw up, no joke. It's gotten better. Still not perfect, but I don't need ginger anymore and don't need to sit down the second I start spinning.

Good luck!

u/bombast_forecast · 1 pointr/pregnant

I was feeling awful but my mom bought me these pregnancy candies and while they didn't make me "better," the certainly took the edge off, I always kept some in my pocket at work. OB told me that sugar levels (even if you aren't diabetic, even if you have perfect health) affect nausea, so sugary stuff (white starches, candy, fruit, etc.,) can make nausea worse, and protein stabilizes sugar so it can help prevent nausea. I found that I did feel better after eating a spoonful of peanut butter for breakfast instead of a cup of fruit or a waffle. Hunger also makes it worse, eating a ton of small snacks really worked for me.

The nausea candies plus eating a few cashews or peanuts for protein every few hours did make me feel better. I've heard great things about the medications and supplements other users have mentions, but personally never tried them. I hope she finds something that helps!

u/Algrimor · 1 pointr/flying

I got airsick doing steep turns and also on a bumpy day when I was starting out, although I never threw up.

As others have said: ginger pills. Got them at walmart. I take one sometimes two before I fly. Haven't felt sick since.

Eat before: I eat peanut butter sandwiches or peanut butter crackers or something filling but not heavy. Also hydrate before as well.

What I haven't seen mentioned yet are called Sea Bands
They are little wristbands that hold a pressure point on your wrist. You forget you're wearing them. Haven't felt even a little queasy since I tried them, even today which was really hot and bumpy this afternoon. I also only wear one of them but you can use both. I know they are a little dorky looking, but honestly it's better than wearing your breakfast. I was skeptical at first, but honestly I was willing to try anything and I feel like they helped alot. Good luck and try to fly more frequently to get used to flying!

u/ErkyFolkor · -1 pointsr/AmItheAsshole

NAH - pregnancy is hard for everyone involved. I spent many nights sleeping in on the edge of our full sized bed during our first pregnancy, but it didn't adversely effect my sleep so it's not fair to judge. If you can't sleep like that then it's perfectly fine to sleep on the couch, but you should still cuddle and spend time with your partner.
The vomiting is another issue. She's past her first trimester, so it should be getting better, but there are some things you can do to help prevent it. B-6 and doxylamine work for my wife. Also, they make bags that are easier to throw up in and can be kept in convenient locations. 50 Pack Emesis Bag, Disposable Vomit Bags, Aircraft & Car Sickness Bag, Nausea Bags for Travel Motion Sickness

u/SleepFame · 3 pointsr/askwomenadvice

You can see if she’s interested in Preggie Pop Drops. They’re available on Amazon and I know Walmart has them. Also ginger - but not in high doses. I hope she gets better during her second trimester! Congratulations! Amazon Pop Drop

u/Marlboro_Gold · 1 pointr/Parenting

You can maybe try this or Hyland's makes this. I have had some success from Hyland's teething tabs and sniffles tabs. They dissolve and are safe for young kids. My other thoughts from my pregnancy nausea are mints (I liked spearmint better than peppermint) and also try ginger, like ginger ale. Another thought is the lollipops they make for pregnant ladies. I think they're called preggo pops or preggy pops. Also, my aunt owns a cleaning business and she uses a product called Odo-Ban for things that have a bad smell. Good Luck.

u/thursdayborn · 2 pointsr/August2016Bumpers

I haven't thrown up yet either, but for peace of mind I bought these and have them stashed in various places: I figured they don't go bad so they'll be useful eventually! :)

u/DyceFreak · 11 pointsr/truegaming

Dramamine and one of these band things

Other things that might help would be chewing gum or snacking. Also apparently fresh cool air helps as well.

Mythbusters did an episode indicating that ginger root is an effective supplement too, good excuse for a sushi feast.

u/hecallsmepickle · 1 pointr/fitpregnancy

Take it easy. I could barely run my first trimester. I’m 13+1 today and ran 2 miles for the first time in a while last week. I was still tired. This weekend I finally feel like I have some energy again and hiked 9 miles yesterday and 7 today. The first 11 weeks or so I took a lot of walks.

I was lucky and didn’t have much nausea, but when I did, I usually had to eat or I’d pop a preggie pop

Good luck and be nice to yourself!

u/snowappleskin · 12 pointsr/breakingmom

I highly recommend purchasing some emesis bags. They saved my life during pregnancy. I kept them in my purse, the car, and every single room in the house (plus one in the shower stall). Perfect for when you're exploding out both ends.

These were really sturdy: Medline Emesis Bags,

The plastic O-ring can be ripped off when you're done heaving so that you can tie off the bag. Good luck, mama!

u/neverdeadned22 · 3 pointsr/predaddit

My wife had success with preggo pops or these ginger candies. Basically I tried everything and anything to help including a wrist band for motion sickness but those worked the best, at least she is eating which is good.

u/dumb-b1tch · 3 pointsr/Gastroparesis

I just wanted to share this brand I use, as I prefer them over the standard blue ones from the hospital. I use these ones because they are a lot thinner and fit better in a purse! They also have a 2 drawstring mechanism to tie it shut and avoid messes. The best part is there’s like an absorbent pad inside the bag that turns all liquids into a gel so that it does not smell. Super great if you are wanting to be a little more discreet!!

u/cantonic · 1 pointr/virtualreality

I use 2 tools to try and deal with motion sickness (besides stopping play immediately once I feel off). One is Sea Bands. Super cheap, and simple motion sickness treatment.

Another is to have a fan going pointed at me. It helps cool me off and also keeps my body oriented even as I’m immersed in VR. Maybe one of those would help you!

u/jalapenyobusiness · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I didn't realize how much Preggie Pops were helping me until I ran out of them! They're a little pricey, and I haven't tried other hard sour candies, but they definitely help me a lot. They make ones with vitamin B6 too. I also got ginger candies which help too, but I don't like the taste.

u/Purplegill10 · 3 pointsr/casualiama

One thing I would highly recommend is getting these delicious things (they sell them at most pharmacies). Only have the pills as a last resort.

EDIT: Actually I found these as well which might be better in your pocket. These are stronger and said to work better for severe nausea also.

u/BaneReturns · 3 pointsr/PS4

It's probably motion sickness. I get this with certain games, mainly FPS games. I also get that overly warm feeling. Make sure you drink enough water.

Do you ever feel claustrophobic in first person games? Like, your brain feels like it can't take a break? That's what it's like for me. In third person, it feels freeing because I can see my character.

You can try wearing a motion sickness bracelet (yes, they actually work) and see if that makes any difference. For example:

u/ScrufffyJoe · 0 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

You can actually get sickness bracelets which apply pressure to a certain point on your wrist which has helped me before. After I lost the pair I had I began just applying pressure to that point with my other hand, which seemed to continue to help, though did bruise if I wasn't careful.

Beyond that I have always a breathing technique to mitigate this kind of thing. Breathe in through your nose for four seconds (count it out in your head, nice and slowly) and then breathe out slowly and deeply through your mouth. This is a technique that has helped me throughout my life.

Beyond that you can also try eating mints (although be careful). Mint is a muscle relaxant so if your stomach is a little tensed up mint can help you out somewhat, although don't go wild, as it can act as a laxative! All in all though mint has helped me a lot. (I'd avoid sugary mints like Polos or Tic-tTacs as they're less likely to have as much actual mint, and on top of that are just not as good for you)

I hope some of these help you out!

u/abowlofcereal · 0 pointsr/Lyft

I'm passing on this NYE, as well. I'd much rather be with my friends that night.

It's a little late to recommend vomit bags, but CareBags are among the best: they have a draw string to close and keep the stench out and an absorption pad built in.

Also, if you're taking care of drunks- while it might not get you any additional tips- water and something for them to munch might help them stay somewhat coherent.

u/sake2 · 3 pointsr/sailing

Grab some SeaBands or their generic equivalent. We keep several sets on the boat for those prone to seasickness and newbies who even think they might be. As a rule, if you get carsick, you probably also get seasick.

If you do find yourself feeling seasick, you are better off on the deck than down below. Spend some time looking at the horizon to calm your stomach.

Also, sunscreen! It can be tough to find shade out on the water, plus, you have the sun reflected back at you. That can lead to a seriously painful burn, so, cover up!

Relax, have fun, and listen carefully to the skipper, and I think you'll have a great time.

u/tinatrying · 2 pointsr/CautiousBB

I got my candies from Amazon, but they usually also sell them at babies r us and the like. Preggie pops

Follow YOUR cravings for what sounds good...for some it's acid (vinegar or citrus), for others it's ginger, for others who develop hg, only Meds will help.

It's totally ok right now if your whole diet is bagels and cream cheese for a week. As long as you are taking a quality prenatal, the most important thing is that you don't get dehydrated or too hungry.

Hang in there!

u/vtdmm · 5 pointsr/pregnant

Ugh! I’m sorry. It is probably worth checking in with your OB and see if there is anything else they can do to help you. Maybe chewing gum or peppermints? Or I found it helpful to carry around something that smelt like peppermint (cheap essential oils), sometimes that made me “forget” the gagging.

I recommend these sick bags though (not that that is super helpful):

u/SparkitusRex · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Congrats! I'm not in quite the same position, but my husband travels a lot for work (in the busy season, he's out of town 3 to 4 days every other week).

The hardest part for me was morning sickness. Sometimes the dumbest things got to me. My dachshund has a distinct "hound" smell to her, if it's been more than a week since she got a bath. That would set it off. Dishes. Cleaning toilets. Stuff like that. My best suggestion if you have really bad morning sickness is those puke bags they offer in hospitals, you can buy them on Amazon.

I remember when my dog had the poops in his crate while I was at work. I was dry heaving in the back yard at 1am literally sobbing "I can't do this." But my husband was out of town for several days, and I had to do it. And you know what? I did. And I survived.

It was rough sometimes, but we got through it. I'm in my third trimester now and he is still traveling for work, that's not gonna change. But we powered through the rough feelings.

I know what you mean about feeling alone. But you're never really alone, between your mom and your friend and the wonderful people on Reddit. And if you ever need someone to talk to, you can always talk to me about it, if you'd like.

You can do this, you're strong!

u/iLiketheway_youthink · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Best recommendation: Ginger, Preggie Pops and Preggie Pops Chews

If it's bad enough where she can't keep any food or fluid down, make sure she talks to the doctor so they can make sure it's not HG and/or recommend a B6 + Unisom concoction.

And of course, all the love and support you can give will go a long way. There are days where I just needed to sleep on the bathroom tile. On those days, my SO brought me a pillow and a glass of water to keep by the toilet.

u/mamatobee328 · 2 pointsr/breakingmom

I ate plain carbs like bagels with dark, caffeine free soda like root beer. That’s what my child got nutrients from for about the first trimester and about half of the second trimester. If i ate those things, i felt fine and could function normally. I also got this thing filled with essential oils that you smell that really helped nausea. I kept it in my car if too much time lapses between my carb/soda meals lol

u/willnotforget2 · 0 pointsr/PSVR

Not pure ginger - ginger gum. Take it once you feel wierd. Take it slow - getting longer each day. Try to start with games that don't have heavy movement. Work your way up to RE7. Battlezone is like medium level, but many games don't require you to move. Superhot for example. Lots of games on the sale in the US if that is where you are. Were talking like 70 percent off some great games.

u/benlucky13 · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

someone else in the thread mentioned sea bands, which seem to have pretty good reviews as well. never used one myself, though. seems like a $7 gamble worth a shot

u/SKULLJR · 0 pointsr/Vive

Pick up some of these.

Makes a huge difference for me. It also helps when I ride in planes, so they are pretty awesome. I get some motion sickness in cars and planes and these have totally stopped that.

u/marianne215 · 1 pointr/breakingmom

Ugh I'm so sorry. I'm 15w with #2 and was sick all day every day for the whole first tri. Luckily it turned off like a switch last week. My hopes are with you.

Also I got these ginger candies Tummydrops Ginger (bag of 30 individually wrapped drops) and they worked like magic. Good luck!

u/the_syco · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

Try this for morning sickness. I got it for travel sickness, and it worked great for me. Lent it to a mates wife, and she said the difference was night and day; the difference was dying on the couch, and able to work. And best if all; no pills. Lent it to another mates wife, who had other pregnancy related ills, and it made her life better.

u/PacoTLM2 · 1 pointr/WaltDisneyWorld

med? no. other solution, oh yeah!
Wife & MIL both get vertigo and are awful to travel with (like used the bags on flights, would spend the first day in bed afterwards)... before we found these. Acupressure version, electric version.

It looks like a watch and works like a miracle. Get the wrist band type first, see if that helps, the electronic version costs more but they also do a much better job. If you can get one on amazon and return it (if it doesn't work for you) do that.

Some science stuff.

u/mothstuckinabath · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

I highly recommend getting actual barf bags. I like these ones from Amazon. I keep one in my purse, one tucked in the side of my seat in the car, and the rest by my bed. They're so much more pleasant to barf in.

u/Prokinsey · 1 pointr/CrohnsDisease

I recommend these bags:

Honestly, I recommend them even for people without IBD. Throw a towel, extra baby wipes, some tissues, a black trash bag, a couple of bottles of water, and a change of clothes in there and you're ready for anything.

u/UCgirl · 9 pointsr/FundieSnark

I am so so sorry you had to put your dog down. I feel like let’s take on a hike knew special meaning when you are chronically ill.

Also, I would look up “emesis bag” on Amazon. They are disposable bags for throwing up. This is going to sound so weird, but picture a large condom. The open end is a hard ring. The rest is a touch plastic. Several ERs in my area use them. You hold the ring to your mouth and throw up into the bag. Then you throw it away. These have been a life changer for me. They come without being stretched out first (similar to a condom) so they can be stowed in the car, purse, wherever. And unlike solid pans/trash cans/etc., it’s easy to keep one in bed with you if you wake up ready to vomit. Here’s an example. I don’t know if this is the cheapest or anything. And they also come in packs less than 50. This isn’t a referral link or anything.

u/gamesterette · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

These saved my life when I was pregnant. My husband had sympathy sickness and had his own tin of them. They are amazing.

u/imakepourdecisions8 · 2 pointsr/Oct2019BabyBumps

Has anyone tried any morning sickness candies? I need candies that are individually wrapped to bring into work, but I wanted to see if anyone had a specific kind that worked for them??

I found these two on Amazon that sound like they could be promising? I don't really like ginger, so I was hoping the raspberry ones would mask some of the ginger taste.

u/yasexythangyou · 5 pointsr/June2019Bumpers

u/Ameradian · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Ugh, I'm sorry that you're dealing with such extreme sickness, and that people are being so stupid. I hope you find relief soon. Are you on medication?

Also, if you don't already have these, I hear they're pretty great. Never used one myself, but they got good reviews.

u/Ur_crumbelievable · 2 pointsr/January2018Bumpers

Good catch! I like pink stork tea.
Kind of expensive but it seems to help my nausea.

u/yuris · 1 pointr/flying

When I was doing my training, I used to get motion sickness during steep turns (after a few turns). I ended up buying Sea Bands ( for myself, as well as some generic ginger pills from Whole Foods and it did help me. It's quite possible it was a placebo effect, I won't deny it, but I also don't care, since it helped me get over the motion sickness (I no longer wear them :)

I do keep them in my bag and give them to passengers who are squirmish, and they seem to like it as well. I don't know if I'd spend $90 as per the previous suggestion, but these are $6, so...

I also still keep a box of ginger pills in my flight bag for the same reason.

u/pinetreesandtea · 2 pointsr/IWantToLearn

If you can spare the money,Amazon has neausea candy drops. There's a 3-pack (21 candies to a pack) for ~$14. My mom sent them to her friend who had to go through chemo and he LOVES them.

u/gooberlx · 18 pointsr/dogs

FWIW, these are the kinds of vomit bags you'll find in a hospital. You twist and clip when done to close it up. Cupping your hand around/under the top rim of these things is, IME, far superior to holding the edges of a ziploc open.

u/givemeteapls · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Look into something like this for the vomiting. Someone in babybumps mentioned them once and I bought some just in case. Haven't had to use them yet but they have great reviews.

u/ab1121 · 1 pointr/travel

I have the same issues. I never travel without my motion sickness bracelets and I always always always take my ginger candy.... suck on them don't chew them.

And when I know I'm going on a long bus or a boat ride I use motion sickness patches. These aren't the exact ones I use, I live in Korea, where you can get an over the counter version, but this is basically the point.

Good luck!

u/SoakedInSara · 1 pointr/harrypotter

My ex gets motion sickness, and he got it pretty bad after Forbidden Journey. He ended up taking dramamine and got really sleepy. We plan to go again next year so he got these after a friend recommended them. Apparently they really work!

I think if you chew ginger gum, take non-drowsy dramamine, and wear those bracelets you can try riding the rides during the end of the day before you go back to your hotel. That way you'd be safe back in bed once the pukes kick in, lol. I hope any of that helped!

u/Sp3cia1K · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Mhmm these are what I got and they did work! I was really excited because I had a lot of planes when I flew to Norway and back. And I knew I had a few transits too and was afraid of the bus ride. They worked perfectly.

u/photobanana · 2 pointsr/Mommit

She gets in them pretty well now but she loses consciousness when she has the episodes so it isn’t always catchable.

I was pretty excited when she threw up in the toilet all by herself for the first time.

u/CuteLittleParasite · 1 pointr/predaddit

My wife took Diclegis and it seemed to help, at least at first. She ended up only needing it once or twice, but her OB suggested taking it up to 4 times if needed. I'd recommend your wife talk to her OB about that and other alternatives. Mine also took Tums daily, and regularly drank ginger ale (make sure it has real ginger) and used preggy pop drops.

u/Entr0pi3 · 1 pointr/oculus

These work great for me. Pop one in while I play and no issue. YMMV but pretty cheap to try out.

I am really susceptible to motion sickness, made VR nearly impossible.

u/beyondthetech · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Dramamine works to counteract the motion sickness, but I don't like the idea of popping in a pill every time I want to play a game. Did it a few times and it really helped.

Acupressure wristbands are what I use now, and I'm surprised it works just as well.

u/JoeMarron · 1 pointr/trucksim

The performance is better with DX11 but unfortunately the flickering is still there, I forgot that the anti aliasing doesn't do anything in VR. I think it was motion sickness that was causing my headaches, I started wearing sea bands while playing and I haven't had any issues. Even with the flickering the game is still gorgeous and a blast to play in VR.

u/yahoooo4 · 1 pointr/leukemia

>Disposable vomit bags saved me from a lot of cleaning..

Those are so great. They fit well in glove compartments too, just in case.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/PSVR

No one has mentioned something called Sea Bands You can get them on Amazon. They are little sweat bands that have a plastic domes on them. You wear them on your wrists. The white domes press into the skin some and hit a pressure point that reduces motion sickness pretty well.

I hadn’t played for a few months and played RE7 the other day for about an hour and forgot to put them on. I felt awful of course. Today I wore them and played Farpoint for an hour and a half and felt just fine.

u/ambut · 3 pointsr/OctoberBumpers2017

They're sour hard candies meant to curb morning sickness. I guess sour things are supposed to reduce nausea? I can't tell if they really work but the tangerine ones are a delight. Haven't ventured to the other flavors yet because I am a baby.

u/InfertyMyrty · 1 pointr/InfertilityBabies

Yeah these are great for taking on walks or if you’re sightseeing with a tiny purse .

I threw up a LOT at work, and really liked these ones because you don’t have to worry about spilling or leaks. They also twist and tie off so you can stop the smell immediately, which was nice during takeoff bc I couldn’t get to the trash anytime quickly.
Sorry for the long link:

u/katieshineh · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

if you order these on amazon maybe they can get to you ASAP via prime. i ordered these for a friend and she said they worked.

or maybe they have them at like babys r us.

u/ParkieDude · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

It is a hand wheel chair, plenty of room under the chair for bags.

A friend was with me the other day, and was asking "what is with all the blue bags" stuffed in the door pockets. Oh never know when they will come in handy.

u/rmcquade19 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

It may sound like some sort of voodoo magic, but if you suffer from any sort of motion sickness, Sea Bands are a MUST

I keep a bracelet on my display dock for people without VR legs to put on if they want to get adventurous and try something a little more extreme and it works like a charm.

u/FooFatFighters · 1 pointr/OculusGo

There’s an electronic gadget you wear on your wrist called a Relief Band. They sell it on Amazon and private pilot shops. Prevents nausea without drugs. Here's the Amazon link, there are also other models and at least one other brand.

Edited to add link.

u/KALT1803 · 2 pointsr/PSVR

I knew about that one, but wouldn't call it a "technical" solution:

But yeah, somebody had to make a more expensive alternative to it... :D

u/djstephie · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Not sure if this has been mentioned before in the post but try putting motion sickness bands on. They are called seabands. I usually get bouts of motion sickness as well and its terrible. Usually happens to me with FPS games. So i got these for a cruise and read that you can also wear it for vertigo, gaming, and rides like roller coasters.

Hope this helps the community!

u/Groen28 · 2 pointsr/oculus

The one I bought, but I am sure other ginger candy should work as well.

u/lookinforabean · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I had never heard of them either...looks like I can subscribe to them on amazon though :-)

u/adriesty · 1 pointr/migraine

I take compazine. It was prescribed by my doc after I had some bad side effects to imitrex.

I've since stopped taking imitrex because of such shitty side effects, but still take compazine when my migraines or motion sickens make me nauseous.

I know that this might not help, but one of the things that got my sister through her severe morning sickness was these anti nausea lollipops or hard candies marketed for pregnant ladies. I'm not sure of the exact kind she used, but I'm pretty sure it was something very similar to this ( )

I also swear by gingersnaps instead of crackers for help with nausea, but they have to be made with real ginger.
I prefer Anna's ginger thins, if it helps.

Good luck.

u/brianorca · 1 pointr/sailing

My wife tried several things, but the one that worked was MotionEaze. It's a topical oil you apply behind your ear.

But repetition also helped. She was free of seasickness, even without any remedies, after we sailed regularly for 4-6 months.

u/PragmaticSquirrel · 2 pointsr/AmItheAsshole


Also check out the Relief Band - it’s the only FDA approved treatment for nausea that Stop nausea after it starts and with zero drowsiness.

I’ve had them and they are amazing.

u/avomwew · 3 pointsr/PSVR

Try seabands! They're wristbands that push on a pressure point, and they have worked really well for me. Has worked for me in VR and for motion sickness in cars, planes, and boats, with no side effects. And you can wear them whenever you need them, so also a much cheaper option than motion sickness medicines.

u/Minemose · 2 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

It's super cheap on Amazon (generic version)

I take it every day when I'm in Orlando and you can't even tell you have taken it other than not feeling motion sickness.

u/privateprblms · 2 pointsr/childfree I think they sell them at Target, definitely Walgreens and CVS, or Amazon is probably cheapest.

I heard about them from a woman that used them for chemo, and between them and Reed's ginger candies I was able to get through a couple months of some awful medications. Before them I vomited so forcefully a noodle came out my nose. That was fun.

u/SirMontego · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I use all three of these at the same time:

Motion eaze. Its a natural anti-motion sickness mix of oils:

Sea bands. It puts pressure on a point on the arm to also reduce motion sickness:

Ginger pills.

To me, they seem to work. Now, I'm not sure if they work because I think they work or because they actually do something. In any case, it helps to reduce my motion sickness and that's what's important to me.

u/PresidentPoopenmeyer · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

not sure how well they work for vertigo induced dizziness, but sea-bands have truly worked miracles on my motion sickness.

u/Davidhaslhof · 2 pointsr/ems
  1. Stay hydrated and make sure you have a full stomach

  2. Try either Sea-Bands or electronic motion sickness band](

    3)If possible could you swap stations? It might be the truck that is making you sick. Damn air suspension

  3. Meds. If I were to go the medication route I would suggest DextroamphetamineStudy . The reason Dextroamphetamine is my number one choice is because it works really really well, it is well suited for a job that requires minimal drowsiness, and has none of the downsides of drugs like Scopolamine. I assume you see a neurologist, take the study to him and talk to him about it. If you do not see a neurologist I highly recommend going to see one to get further treatment for your motion sickness.

    5)If all else fails there are OTC medications like Dramamine, meclizine, dimenhydrinate, benadryl(ew)...

    6)And always remember, treat nausea before it starts.

u/Marshmallowpup · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

These emesis bags are AMAZING. They are long/deep so there is no splash back, have a rigid mouth for easy one handed use (no struggling to keep a Ziploc bag open while driving and fighting the terrible urge to vomit on everything), are fairly compact, and twist and 'clip into' a notch on the rigid mouth so when you are done you can close off the bag and not have to look at and smell your ouke until you have a chance to toss it.

I was puking until delivery and this is what made it not ruin my life completely (these and Diclegis). I kept a few in every car and in my purse and various places around the house.

For the peeing I have no easy solution other than what I did- just always keep a towel in the car to frantically stuff under you when you feel that pukey urge coming :P

I hope you feel better soon!

There is an acupressure point for nausea you can press on the inside of your wrist, it is hard to explain where exactly but check out youtube. Chew a piece of fresh ginger or have ginger candy. This also helped me

u/moonboggle · 5 pointsr/weddingplanning

I have a weak stomach but still love to cruise. Usually the first night of sailing, I'm a hot mess, and then for the rest of the time I'm fne. Dramamine works for some people and there are bracelets that are somehow magic. I've never tried those but I know people who have and they say it works. The only cruise ship that I didn't feel seasick on at all was the Allure of the Seas which is I believe the second largest ship.

u/ElvisQuinn · -18 pointsr/AmItheAsshole

EAH. She’s pregnant and you’re getting butt hurt that she doesn’t give you enough room in the bed. She found a pillow that makes her comfortable enough to sleep- that’s awesome, a lot of pregnant women are unable to. I’m sure you two can find a temporary solution where you both can sleep during pregnancy. You sleeping on the couch doesn’t have to be reactive to a fight- it can just be that you both are honoring that sleep is important for both of you. As far as her puking goes, she should of figured out a way to not vomit everywhere by now. I know it’s tricky with pregnancy bc it’s uncertain when the continuous nausea will actually lead to vomiting, it can escalate so fast. I recommend getting emesis bags- you put them right up to your mouth, so she can’t miss, and you can leave them all over the house, so she really can’t miss.

u/DaveYanakov · 4 pointsr/uberdrivers

Do not skimp on bags. You will need them someday and $10 gets you enough bags to cover a hundred hours of missed surge times. A $150 cleaning fee is nothing when it keeps you from driving during the weekend traffic or pre-game rushes. I have only gone through 5 of these in 18 months but the one passenger whose aim was off proved their value

u/AJBats · 1 pointr/oculus

To provide an alternate tip, dramamine didn't work for me, and the drowsey side effect is quite strong. What I use instead is this and this.

A warning though the ginger one is quite spicy. These two drops helped me settle my stomach as my VR legs developed. It also helped me "reset" my VR association after I've had a nauseous experience. As others have said if you have a bad time even so much as the smell of the HMD will set you off. In those cases I would pop a few drops and play something extremely passive that I know shouldn't cause nausea. I'm at a point now where I'm able to play classic Doom in VR, a game that wasn't even designed for VR.

Took me from getting really sick after 15 minutes into certain games, to running around RE feeling maybe slightly unsettled after a few hours. I never believed in stuff like this, but it's worth the 6 dollar gamble if you experience any level of motion sickness. Just follow the instuctions.

I don’t get nauseous, grumpy, headaches, or extreme fatigue. It works best when you put them on correctly (duh) and 15 min before your trip.

u/itsrainingweiners · 3 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

Seeing this post late, but I wanted to throw this out there; I have gastroparesis, the severity of which varies from day to day. I get super, super nauseous and pukey and can't eat at all when it's bad, but there's a product called Queasy Drops that are magical. I cannot express how much these things help me, and they have ones for pregnancy, too, though I can't vouch for those as I've never used them.You can get them from the makers website or amazon. The only problem I have with them is they melt really easily, so you can't stash them in places like your car. Even putting them in your pocket can melt them sometimes. I don't care though, I buy these suckers in bulk now and have them all over my house and office at work just in case. I don't care for most of the flavors in the mixed package but you can purchase some of them separately. I always get the raspberry. Also, apologies in advance if the link is messed up, I'm on mobile and for some reason I'm having trouble with the formatting.

I got these a few days ago

My mum used to get chronic sea sickness every year on our annual ferry trip to France, she literally threw up on every journey. After maybe 15 years of sickness she tried these motion sickness bands, from the first time she used them until today (15 years) she hasn't been sick since. So I am trying them, so far I would say they have reduced my sickness in the Rift.

We use these in our hospital. I've used these and they work. It's also small enough to fit in a pocket/purse. NAH. Not everyone can handle bodily fluids. 50 Pack Emesis Bag, Disposable Vomit Bags, Aircraft & Car Sickness Bag, Nausea Bags for Travel Motion Sickness

These sea bands helped me a lot!

u/the13pianist · 1 pointr/pics

Try this - I used it for my own motion sickness and it worked miracles.

u/exittron · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Sea-Bands...I have two pair. One for normal wear and one for the shower (Seriously. I was nauseous 24/7).

Crystallized ginger. Found it at Frys in the organic foods section. It's spicy but it really helped!

Ever thought about stocking airline vomit bags in the back seat?

u/fliffernim · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

This was the brand I personally had but I also used Wint o'green Lifesavers too

Just start in small sessions and work up to longer ones.

Don't try to power through - as soon as you feel...wrong, stop ;)

I hear these work too, but not tried them myself:

Not sure if there are popsicles but I think these are the Peggie Pops most people are referring to.

u/jellyyy · 1 pointr/FemmeThoughts

So do I! I saw them recommended somewhere on reddit, and they're officially called Sea Bands. Basically they push at a pressure point on your wrist that's supposed to relieve nausea. I still have no idea if it works or not, I just use them for mild cases or long car rides.

u/Puddleston · 2 pointsr/patientgamers

I will get motion sickness from some fps games. As others have said, try to widen the FOV. I also will use sea-bands as they work for me though I know they do not help everyone.

u/Tlauc1999 · 5 pointsr/flying

I literally fought air sickness for 200 hours worth of flying. It would go away and come back again. I wanted to fly so bad I kept going. It was awful at some points. I’ve probably thrown up in a plane 5 times. All the “remedies” and treatments never worked for me. What finally did work for me was this: motion sickness band
Then I slowly started flying more regularly without it and the sickness went away. I have a really sensitive stomach and used to deal with car sickness too. Don’t give up on your dreams for motion sickness

u/Learn_To_Be · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

these helped me a bit. Also, peppermint lifesavers. Ultimately, my doctor gave me a prescription for diclegis. This may just be an old wives' tale but I always heard that tough morning sickness was a sign that the pregnancy was going to stick. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you guys.

u/sunny4041 · 2 pointsr/Oct2019BabyBumps

Have your tried snacking throughout the day - a plain cracker here and there? You can also try sucking on a hard ginger candy.

u/schmuber · 1 pointr/uberdrivers

Soft bags require fine motor skills to operate. Try using your barf bag while wearing oven mitts – that's exactly how low motor skills of an average drunk are.

Get the ones /u/UberDuperDrew suggested, or the ones I use. Hard entry ring is the key here. I keep mine unfolded and ready to go within my reach, so I can hand it to the pax in less than one second. So far (knock on wood) haven't missed a single drop. All my cleanups are food, drinks and dirt, not the vomit.

u/nuggetlover99 · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Sea-bands worked for me. I was totally skeptical, but they worked within minutes and were a real lifesaver when my nausea was at its worst.

u/UofHCoog · 2 pointsr/InfertilityBabies

Preggie pop drops. Horrible name, but they have B6 and there is a sour variety.

u/Beachwood45789 · 1 pointr/Septemberbumpers2017

Preggie pops! They worked wonders with my first. Also, these natural peppermint drops. I had to hide both from my husband because they're so good :P

u/ciarose5 · 2 pointsr/PostConcussion

I have really bad nausea from a different illness, and I've found sea bands actually really do help me

u/brockmt · 3 pointsr/flying

My daughter frequently got sick for the first while after she started flying. One of these did the trick for her:

u/Echost · 3 pointsr/thebachelor

Yesss...I didn't have HG, thankfully but I threw up every day until I delivered..Anytime we went to eat anywhere I threw up, in the car I threw up. Next time I'm ordering these to have on hand everywhere lol. but for some reason I was always in a good mood. My husband jokes that I should get pregnant again because I was so happy lol.

I had Marginal Cord Insertion, so the umbilical cord was attached to the placenta in the wrong place. I didn't have a bad case, but it was risky. The umbilical cord can detach for whatever reason, you could have poor fetal growth, all sorts of complications. BUT..we made it 41 weeks amazingly. Between that and being in the third trimester during flu season I was so paranoid! So much can go wrong. I don't think I've ever experienced vulnerability like that, its terrifying.

u/qpgmr · 2 pointsr/Cruise

Instead of going to drugs which will make you feel dopey, there's an alternative: the "ReliefBand" was recommended to us by a forester that had to go on helicopter surveys on constantly (surveying requires hovering, moving around an object, ascending/descending in place - anyone slightly prone to motion sickness vomits, even the pilots occassionally).

It electrically stimulates the vagus nerve, supressing nausea. It works so well you can get it paid for with a prescription if you're on cancer chemo therapy.

Since getting it my SO (who has been know to lose it on car rides) has never became ill on over a dozen cruises, including a 15 day SF to Hawaii RT winter cruise. We got one for a friend who is much more sensitive and she had no problems, even on a very rough crossing of the sea of cortez.

u/notantisocial · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I was already a nervous thrower upper my whole life. So morning sickness and stress really made me sicker than I think I would have been normally.

Sometimes if my husband would rub my back and tell me it was going to be okay. I would calm down and not not throw up or only throw up once.

What helped the MOST was the sick bags from Amazon that I could carry every where and reduced the smell. My husband hates vomit and he could sit next to me and not smell anything. I have literally throw up pretty discreetly all kinds of places. Mostly notably at the airport, at the gate and wait by the bathroom for my husband to get out. I seriously didn't want to put my head near an airport toilet.


I have one of these bags left at 38 weeks and I keep it in my purse.

u/chi_30 · 2 pointsr/Oct2018BabyBumps

Yup I ordered these off amazon, they have an absorbant pad. I haven't had to use one yet, but I felt close today.

I feel you on the public transit issue. I found I HAVE to sit in a forward facing seat, which means staying on the slower train instead of transferring 1/2 way to a fast one, because it only has sideways seats (which are hard to get) and tends to smell worse. There's a nicer moving commuter train I can take, but its hard for me to catch in the morning and is a mile walk to my office. I'll take it home sometimes. Part of me just want to start driving, but I'm so tired and would get mad in traffic, plus the weather has been snowy and I don't like driving in that. The elevator ride up to my floor nearly did me in this morning.

Specifically, a face steamer and a moulded eyepatch.

My migraine kit consists of
Lamictal (daily)
Imitrex. (abortive)
Zofran. (anti nausea)

A moulded eye patch and a moulded blindfolded that has a nose gap. It being moulded allows you to blink and the nose gap allows the blindfold to completely black things out.

I use the eyepatch because for me, my eye pain and light sensitivity is often only in one eye.

A face steamer (steam is the only thing that alleviates my eye pain and this device allows me to remain in bed instead of trying to crawl to/get into/get out of the shower).

A vogmask to filter triggering smells

Vomit bags

Ear plugs (others I know use noise canceling headphones)

Fit-over sunglasses

Due to the hemiplegic symptoms, I also use
A cane
A rollater
A wheelchair for the hella bad days

u/DraegotheLady · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

Sadly, this also happened to me in the first trimester. Weeks 12-20 were the absolute worst. These sour candies plus drinking as much water as I could stand (admittedly not that much) plus Zantac at night was the only way I got through. I am so sorry you're suffering :(
