I get absolutely horrible vertigo (with nausea), tension headaches, and migraines from fluorescents! I also have heart palpitations, sweaty hands and pits (but no where else), tensed muscles in head, face (jaw), neck, and shoulders.... it's absolutely the world feeling in the world and I CAN'T get away from the fluorescents! They've destroyed my life!! My brain goes stupid, I can't think properly or speak properly. I have confusion, slow reactions... I don't get it!? It all started following a injury to my head (an elbow hit me on the side of my head).
If ANYONE has a cure, or help, PLEASE let me know!! I have also tried fl-41 tinted glasses and they don't prevent it at all!! I feel like just giving up half the time.... no cure, Drs have no idea about it, I'm just screwed apparently.
I DID ask my work to disconnect the light, they refused... said OSHA wouldn't allow it. I asked about bringing a desk lamp, they said it was a fire hazard and we couldn't have anything plugged in. I even covered my entire cubicle with black plastic tablecloth... but it was open a bit on the side and apparently that's all it needs to destroy me? I tried everything. I was on FMLA and then STD before they fired me... now I'm unemployed and struggling because I can't just "go get a job". It sounds easy enough to just CHANGE THE LIGHTS!!!! Right? But no one does, or cares, and plus the rest of the building would still have the dang things anyway. I feel like giving up alot lately, I've seen so many doctors and specialists and had tests and tests and tried meds, and tried therapies... nothing works. I'm glad I'm not alone, but I really wish someone knew of a cure or atleast a bandaid for the issue!
