I dunno if anyone here plays video games on a regular basis but recently my headaches (the kind I get before a seizure) have become...more easily triggered. I try to avoid the flashier things but does anyone have any other suggestions or ideas as to why this is happening?

Gaming is pretty much my main hobby so I can't just stop playing. Heck, I don't think I'd want to even if I could...or could even if I wanted to. Anyone else have a gaming issue?

Video games are well-known seizure triggers. Some are worse than others, but if you're highly sensitive any game may trigger you. The only suggestion I can make is to talk to your doctor. (He'll likely tell you to cut down on video games, but it's worth a try.)
