I'm Going Down....

I'm supposed to be working long day shift today. But i took sick leave cos i have headache, nausea and vomiting. Yes, i've been to the clinic and the doctor prescribed me some medicines. They are Famotidine, Inac and Stemetil for my vomiting. Firstly, i do not know how or why but i believe i have motion sickness. I did some research and it says "People who suffer from migraine headaches or conditions that interfere with sensory input (such as labyrinthitis) are at increased risk for motion sickness." I have no idea what labyrinthitis means but i looked it up and here's what i found.... Labyrinthitis is an inflammation of the inner ear (which i had before), in addition to balance control disorder, a labyrinthitis patient may encounter hearing loss and tinnitus. Back when i had appointment with my ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) doctor, the audiologist DID mention that i have a mild hearing loss.
As for treatment-wise, "Some studies have shown that ginger, an old home remedy for gastrointestinal disturbances, may be effective in prevention of motion sickness."
This is an advantage for me cos i'm currently addicted to ginger tea! :)
I present all the signs and symptoms of motion sickness:
-Paleness of the skin (i'm yellow so i'm not quite sure on this lol)
-Cold sweats
-Increased salivation
Yes, so i'm upset about this. I CANNOT take cabs cos of the STRONG leather scent of the seat. And now, i always get nervous whenever i take buses.
As for my headache, nausea and vomiting after eating, could it be acute gastroenteritis or could it be rumination or could it be gastroesophageal reflux disease? Whatever it is, i hope it subsides. I definitely do NOT want to live with this, apart from my motion sickness.
