MdDS, or Disembarkment Syndrome (Mal de debarquement), differs from the very common condition of "Land Sickness" that most people feel for a short time (for 6 - 16 Hours) after a motion event such as a boat cruise
, aircraft ride, or even a treadmill routine.
In MdDS, the symptoms persist for more than a month, possibly for many years, all medical
treatment is palliative and symptoms that persist beyond 6 months show a very low likelihood of ever remitting.
