Working under a car gives me nausea so quick the intestinal part
doesn't get a chance to become an issue. My usual routine was work
twenty minutes, throw up for five, work anothey twenty, /ad nauseum/,

before any occasion where it's important to not fall down or throw up.
I've been trying it for the past few sway-bar changes: don't eat for a
couple hours before a session, take a Dramamine tablet half-an-hour
before. So far, still get some of the sensations, but no up-chucking
during a couple two-hour jobs.
