Sea bands for nausea

Anyone had any luck with sea bands?

Thank god for Amazon prime, ordered them last night and was so relived to see them when I got home from work. Keeping everything crossed that they work and that cooler weather means I can continue wearing long cardigans for next 4/5 weeks to hide them under!!

They worked for me! grin although I kept them on allllll the time and they do begin to make your wrists ache after a while (still better than ms though)

That's good, I'm toying with that idea if it works. Did they work straight away for you? I'm not sure if I've got them positioned correctly just yet confused

They worked for me once I figured out the positioning. Was the only thing that kept me sane confused

Worked for me too, especially on my hour long morning train commute.

They are amazing! Takes the edge off and meant I could actually go out and start functioning again!

Yeah, worked for me, too.

They definitely took the edge off for me. Even if it was psychological, there's no harm done by wearing them smile

I didn't get morning sickness, but I used to use them for nausea associated with migraines and found them really good smile

They did work for me, so much so that I had to keep taking them off because I was worried my symptoms had disappeared!

Ooh thank you, this sounds promising. I'm still feeling a little nauseous but it doesn't seem as bad. I slept with them on last night and definitely felt a difference first thing this morning.

mycatloveslego that was my exact thought this morning. I had a MMC at the beginning of last year and the first sign was that my symptoms had gone, though I did at realise until later, at that point I was just relieved that my nausea was getting better!

Sorry didn't work for me 😔. Had awful nausea and had to go on medication and go part-time at work until I went on maternity leave 😮.

They do work for lots of people though.

Good luck!

Worked well for me at the beginning. Now I wear them 24 hours a day. Not sure how much they are doing now though - 13 weeks and still being really sick.

I have mine on constantly and I think they help most of the time but not all of the time!

I relied on these as a very motion-sickness prone child, they were amazing!

Might need to get some for DD actually, as I think she's inherited the carsick gene sad

Didn't work for me I had twins and horrid sickness though.
