Flight fatigue or travel insomnia, anything we can also term as jet lag. It happens due to traveling in a different time zone from that of your own daily routine. It can also be experienced by other emotional physical symptoms. This can include anxiety, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, sweating, memory loss, dizziness. Irregular heartbeat or any other related illness.
Either children or adults, anyone can suffer from jet lag. If you travel a lot and can relate to your symptoms with those of jet lag, you too are suffering from the same. But if other signs of sickness or dizziness are there to seek medical help. And do avoid frequent trips.
Causes of Jet Lag
When a person travels a lot or travels far from his native place and time zone changes quite a lot, jet lag happens. This body is incapable to cope with a new and different time zone. Like a person traveling from India to Australia can suffer from jet lag as the body is not used to the new time zone and will feel insomnia, dizziness, fatigue, irritation. It might lead to either diarrhea or constipation as the brain is confused to what is the right schedule of passing the stool and day/night combination now.
Body reaction due to Jet Lag
Our bodies are set up with the time zone of our native land, the place where we live maximum. A part of the brain is set up with a time zone and works like a clock which also regulates the temperature of the body, blood pressure, glucose level. When the brain notices the day and night pattern in a fixed way, it moves accordingly.
It works in a routine of passing stool, feeling hungry, and other daily routines, but when it sees a change in the day and night it gets confused about the routine set and jet lag occurs.
There is no particular severity of jet lag and also it may vary in symptoms also in different people and different time zone and different distances.
The risk factor in jet lag might long last and become severe if you travel across three or more times, fly extremely opposite direction, quite old in age, fly frequently, sleep and stress are manageable, or alcohol consumption is much.
The recovery from jet lag depends upon the time zone traveled. It is temporary so recovery is soon but if you are not at ease soon or your sleep deprivation or stress increases the risk of a stroke increases.
