I know there was a topic about this before 7 years ago, but let me ask the question again.
For those of you who have problems with screens, and get dizzy and nauseated or get a headache, did you get a test for convergence insufficiency (CI)?
Or let me ask it the other way – since a CI test is not perfect – if you do have these symptoms do you also happen to have symptoms when looking at things close to your nose? Say for example texting from your phone in bed holding the phone close?
I am asking this because I have major CI and I have major problems with close screens but also problems with screens from far. This has pushed me out of work now for 2 years. I was told that CI can cause all that. So I would be interested to know if someone is sure not to have CI and yet has the above problems.
And a small detail, I did have a concussion before all this started. But my symptoms really hit 2 months later after a long flight during which I watched several movies on the plane. While I have some typical post-concussion syndrome symptoms, some of my symptoms have not been seen in concussion patients as far as I know.
For example, if I were to watch a movie on a close screen, assuming I don’t get symptoms minutes later, I might get symptoms the very next day and will feel like crap for 2 weeks. It sounds to me that this is common in MAV?
My symptoms are mainly dizziness (more so than vertigo), nausea, headaches. Obviously: sensitivity to screen and sounds.
