Motion Sickness (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
As discussed previously, motion sickness is not a specific disease state and resolves on its own, typically when the motion has stopped. There are no long-term complications of the condition. However, prolonged vomiting can lead to dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities, which if left untreated, may lead to more serious problems such as low blood pressure (hypotension), syncope (fainting), or cardiac arrhythmias.
