    Ive just bought some off ebay and im willing to try anything to keep this nausea/sickness away.

    im quite bad with it and aint keeping much down when i eat its not settling on my stomach i fight to keep it down but few hours later im having to get it up and i feel so much better for it.

    Thanks sue x

    I got some of ebay last week to help with nausea and they did'nt work for me cos a day after wearing them I started actually vomiting and felt worse. But I think maybe I was not wearing them right.

    Hope they work for you xx

    They helped me a little - still felt a little sick, but not so much like i wanted to vomit all the time. Anything is worth a try, they work miracles for some, so maybe you will be lucky

    I bought some sea bands - they definately took the edge off the sickness and I noticed a difference when I took them off.

    You use three fingers to count down from the base of your wrist, then put the band on with the pressure point in the centre. They were a little uncomfortable at first but I got used to them, even slept in them some nights (sure its psychological but thought I slept better with them on some nights!)

    Good luck!

    They didn't end up helping me much - but since they work for some it makes sense to give them a go! Good luck and hope they work for you! XO
