My father was working on a treadmill in my diningroom. He couldn't see with the lighting available so he drags out a halogen floodlight to light up the room.
I was curious and decided to go in there to watch him work.
In less than 3 minutes I started feeling odd. skull
I couldn't think. Was weaken. Pain started shooting through my body. skull
I had to go sit down in another room. After resting for a few minutes I felt okay again. I walked back into the room where he was and felt a wave of weakness hit me.
I left and sat down again in different room and felt a little better. Went in again...weakness.
Bingo! Something told me to check halogens with UV radiation.
I found out Halogen lights emit a high UV radiation! idea
I'm now in a different room away from the light and will stay away until he is done. smilewinkgrin

Kind of a bum deal, now you you have to worry about light bulbs now. I'm the same way. I thought I was just weird. Ever feel that way in department stores or offices? I find I have to wear my sunglasses where I have my blood drawn if I have to wait for more than a few minutes.

I don't take off my hat, sunglasses, and sun jacket unless the room is lit with plain old incondescent bulbs.
My shades at my house stay closed all the time.
