Hi all. New to site. I have been having a debilitating feeling of ” sea sickness ” for 3 months. Pretty much ruining every day for me. I have been to Ear Nose and Throat MD’s, Opthamologists, and yesterday to a Neurologist. Brain MRI was normal. The neurologist said it was likely a viral infection of some sort that attacked the balance area of brain/head. My question is does anyone know of some exercises that might help with this?? Every day is a challenge

Have been tested for Menieres (spelling)? I used to have dizzies & vomiting for 6 months at a time. Dramine was the only thing that helped, making me tired. I found out many years later I have an inner ear inflammation.

Well the ENT people strongly do not think it is inner ear ie: menieres… or any other due to symptoms. No spinning..no vomiting… etc. The neurologist says likely viral infection that may take weeks or months ( it has already been months). I do feel SLIGHTLY like things may be getting better.. but still searching for some tips / exercises / training the brain tools that may help. Considering accupuncture.

Hopefully you will continue to get better. It was the spinning, vomiting……..

Yes! Go see someone for vestibular rehab. You need to do exercises to
rehabilitate your brain. I too have had a year history of this. Terrible !
Rule out inner ear problems, migraines, and any thyroid problems.

I suffer the same off and on for months now. I do take meds for migraines and hypothyroidism. That may play a part in it. Recently I was told I have arthritis in the neck & shoulder which could be pinching a nerve to create the seasick feeling. Won’t know until an MRI is done. Perhaps a spinal doctor can help you?
