re concentration when reading or should I say lack thereof.  I almost get sick to my stomach when I attempt to read a book.
 
Anyone else?  Wondering if this is a depression or a stress symptom.
 
Thanks

Does it bother your eyes at all when you read. Sometimes if my eyes are tired, I will feel a little nauseaus. Don't know if it is the same as you though, I will sometimes have a headache too.

Welcome to the forulm Jannaica. I think that you will find this a nice place to come. The members are very kind and compassionate.

Hugs, Karen

i don't know whether it's a symptom of depression or stress, but I have those feelings from time to time... and then at other times, i just start to feel all restless and jumpy. Probably didn't help much but hey. :)

Hi Jenn

Welcome to the forum. We are very glad that you found us.

When was the last time you have had your eyes checked? Wondering if your vision is not right,and it is making your eyes stress? I had the wrong prescription with contacts,and I was getting very bad migraines when I tried to read,which also caused horrible stomach aches... just a thought.

Hi Jennica,

I have similar troubles when reading. I tend to hold my breath when I'm concentrating on something. It's usually related to delving into new subject. Makes going through a book quite exhausting. I have been given similar advice about getting my eyes checked.
