This is an unusual post and I'm sure not many people can relate to this, but I am desperate for any kind of answer after having gone to 2 ophthalmologists, 2 neurologists, MRI and blood tests.
I have this problem where, when I look at different types of computer screens I develope very bad pain behind my eyes (feels like deep pain in the optic nerve or behind the eye) - this then causes a ripple effect of referral pain to my occipital nerves at the back of my head (flares up) and to the nerves on top of my scalp and just above my ears. This is accompanied by deep deadaches and stiff jawline as well that basically puts me into a state of psychoses where I become unable to think, am affected cognitively, am moody, aggressive, and become almost out of my mind because of the pain and strain all over my head and behind the eyes - I cannot even sleep because of the pain/strain. It last for many days and is triggered by computer screens and ANY type of gaming - watching gameplay videos etc. Glasses have had little effect after trying many. My whole face goes deep pale white and I get halo grey rings around my eyes - I look like a damn cancer patient.
This problem has deeply affected my life, health wise and employment wise and no doctors understand anything about it. I will mention that I have been on SSRI and antidepressant medications in the past and it has become much worse since I came off those meds.
