It has been recently revealed in a report a 47 years old nurse from Britain, Gill Archer, has been suffering from nausea for the past around 6 years after having been in a turbulent flight. As strange as it might seem it was in the year
2006, the second ever flight of her life that she suffered nausea, and since then, the saga continues.
She has been feeling nausea and wobbly for 6 years now. She is a mother of three and is of the view that she does suffer from these attacks and they seem to last for a few months at a time. University of California professor Dr. Yoon-Hee Cha is of the view that the condition Mal de Debarquement Syndrome is very less researched and is a rare condition as well.
"A hallmark feature is the temporary symptomatic improvement of the rocking sensation when the patient is passively moved again, notably when they are driving. The worst situations are usually when they are standing still or coming to a stop after either passively or actively moving”, said Dr. Cha.
He further said that the other symptoms of this disorder are poor attention, fatigue and poor concentration.
Ms. Archer is of the view that she hasn’t yet been able to find a permanent cure for her condition and has been using antidepressants for the treatment of the problems since all these years.
There is need for more research to be done in this regard so that there can be an effective cure found for the same. It is essential that a permanent cure for the condition is found; otherwise the woman shall have to suffer for the rest of her life. There is need for the research to be done also because there might be others suffering from the disorders that are in need of help.
