hey. anyone of you guys experienced jetlag? if you dont know it, well..
jetlag is an effect or hangover from the plane trip. when you get home from the trip(plane maybe), den suddenly you feel like you're still riding on the airplane. you will get dizzy.

THE SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION FOR THIS:

Jet-lag, is a physiological condition which is a consequence of alterations to the circadian rhythm. Such disturbances result from shift work, daylight saving time, altered day length, or as the name implies, transmeridian travel as on a jet plane.

The condition of jet lag may last many days, and medical experts have deemed that a recovery rate of "one day per time zone" is a fair guideline. However, since the experience of jet lag varies among individuals, it is difficult to assess the efficacy of any single remedy. Age may also be a factor on the severity of jet lag, as younger people will suffer worse jet lag than older people would.

for me, well i've experienced it. it only lasted for 1 day after i slept for a day. afternoon and night. my hands are really shaky that it came to the point where the rice/food in it slacked off. and fell on the floor.

please tell me if there is already a thread like this and i will delete this immediately. because i dunno if theres a thread similar to this one. thanks!

if you want more information about this, causes and symptoms. check this site. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jetlag

That's not the meaning of jet lag... Jet lag is caused by the difference in time zones between the two places, thus affecting the circadian sleep rhythm. This usually results in daytime sleepiness or insomnia at night and this happens to many people.

Dude, jetlag happens when you are traveling across multiple time zones and your internal clock gets all messed up. You have something much more seriously wrong with you if you think you are still on the plane. Seek medical attention.

I usually suffer from it when i board planes so i simply try to K.O. myself with sleeping pills or something for flight. Usually i don't get any effects if i do that.

oh my god...i get that. Its so bad that I cant hear anything for like an hour after getting off the plane. Start viciously driving a q tip in there, start doing the dance from a night at the roxburry, anything to get rid of it...

Swollowing is the best thing for that...even though I do all sorts of crazy stuff
