Mal de Débarquement Syndrome (MdDS)

Mal de Débarquement  syndrome (MdDS) is persistent dizziness, disequilibrium and rocking sensation (like being on a boat) on return to a stable environment (land) following motion adaptation. Sea legs or land sickness is a common sensation after being aboard an ocean liner. Most people adapt from sea to land within several days which is normal, but some people do not adapt, and we call this Triggered/Prolonged Mal de Débarquement syndrome.
