Normally, the inner ear informs about the position occupied by the body in space. The information is transmitted to the brain, which instructs the muscles to maintain their balance and follow the changes of direction.
If there is an overabundance of stimulation (ascents, descents, turns) the ear can no longer compensate for successive imbalances. An SOS is sent to the brain, which will activate the first symptoms. Your child becomes pale, does not speak anymore. Follow the dizziness and nausea more and more frequent.
Precautions to take for the trip: give a light meal before departure, maintain a fresh air in the car, take breaks, drive smoothly and install your child in a booster seat, the most suitable position for the inner ear is when the head is slightly tilted back.
