Initially, the interrogation must make it possible to target the disorder and the triggering situation. Among the questions we can ask to discriminate these disorders :

- What are the circumstances of occurrence of these disorders ? (Seasickness, motion sickness, acrophobia)
- Do you have sensations of drunken walking ? (Do not walk straight, knock on doors)
