    This is just weird

    Just completed my first bridge hammock for use inside my cabin. After hanging for 30 minutes I noticed the strangest thing. A feeling of nausea came over me, I think from the feeling of being squeezed by the hammock.
    And no, nothing to drink,smoke or pills. I am a larger than average person and the spreader bars are 38" and 30". I did feel compressed somewhat.
    anyone else ever feel this?

    Is there a chance that when you hung the hammock the foot end was higher than the head end? For some people, that might cause nausea. Just an idea.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Were your eyes shut or open? It could be like car and sea sickness where a small portion of it is that what you see doesn't line up with what your inner ear is doing... I felt nauseous once but I think it was because the wind was making me sway too much for the amount of alcohol consumed.

    The more I think about it, the more I feel like seconding Angrysparrow's reason
