Motion sickness: One POSSIBILITY is an inner ear infection. Please see your doctor and avoid thinking this is a permanent condition. I see you have RA. Here is a link to a new internet series that may be informative. Please continue to do what doc says. https://betrayalseries.com/episode-1-1nyawjkj2?inf_contact_key=2ba368ec41d99f129ae55916078658be1f00e54f0c6f6e912bd580ebf1c329c1
