Summer nausea is a thing: 4 tips to prevent nausea from ruining fun in the sun
Updated: June 16, 2018 - 3:46 am

(BPT) - Summer is the long-awaited season for fun and relaxation, warm weather and quintessential outdoor activities.

According to a new survey from Dramamine-N, nearly one third of Americans note that nausea is debilitating and gets in the way of living their everyday lives. In fact, nausea is making stomachs so uneasy, that more than one in ten Americans actually have a fear of nausea and vomiting, called emetophobia, placing that fear on par with the fears of flying and needles.
