Disease/Condition Glossary

Motion sickness: It is caused when nerves within your ear transmit faulty information about your brain's movement with signals. These nerves, along with signals from your eyes and muscles, enable your body to maintain a good sense of balance. It clashes with the signals received from your other ear, your eyes, or your body, whether the nerves in one of your ears transmit too many, too few or incorrect messages to your brain. Your brain is then confused, which can cause dizziness and a feeling of spinning (vertigo) and make you feel sick. Travel sickness is triggered while flying by frequent irregular movements. These repetitive motions, like going over bumps or around in a circle, give your brain loads of messages. The equilibrium system in your ear sends distinct signals to those in your eyes, which results in mixed and contradictory messages being received by your brain. This is what makes you feel ill. 

Meniere's Disease: It is a disorder of the inner ear that makes you feel dizzy and unwell. It can cause a spinning sensation, vertigo, and sometimes a hearing problem.
