Does staring at TV, computer, & phone screens make you worse?

Posted , 7 users are following.

It makes me feel horrible. My eyes feel like they're bugging out (very strained, dizzy-like, everything is weird). It's to the point where I don't want to look at them at all!

Do y'all with inner ear disorders experience the same? If so, how does it make you feel?

    Oh ye!s., havent read a book in 6 years!  I had to give up laptop and get ipad which helps a bit (for neck as well).  If im on this too much though i get nausea, etc its cos your eyes are doing it all! Too much i guess.  And even do much on my sewing machine now as just looking at that same area seems to bring it on even more!  I tried  reading some newspapers today that were piling up and had to stop. Also my tinnitus gets worse. See my PM

    Yes I have a problem with looking at computer screens. Going to movie theatres. Grocery stores, malls, freeways. I'm very sensitive to any kind of motion.
