Hello all, I'm new around here! i have been reading through some older posts and getting the feel of this place and you all seem very kind and welcoming! I intend to make a longer post explaining my situation in more detail (i am sort of in limbo with my health/health care at the moment) in the near future; but for now, I just wanted to get some thoughts from you guys! I have a really bad problem with being overly verbose basically all of the time, so I'll try to keep it concise!
My question today is, does anyone have issues with fluorescent lighting affecting them negatively? As in causing symptoms to get worse? I ask because, I have a rash across my face (from cheek to cheek and over my nose), which seems to randomly flare up and become brighter/more visible, hot to the touch, and sometimes itchy but it's not always immediately obvious why. I have a lamp which I use for art, which has a very bright fluorescent bulb in it - last night, I was using it to groom my eyebrows, which took a fair amount of time, I'd say after maybe half an hour, I noticed the red rash on my face begin to get redder, and hotter, and the shape became much more obvious, it also began to itch, and i got quite a headache. It happened very quickly. I turned off my lamp and laid down and waited for this to pass and eventually fell asleep. But then I wondered, was it the lamp that caused this? I'd feel really silly if something like a lamp or light source was making my issues worse, especially considering I could easily avoid these things!
So I just wondered if anyone else has any similar problems and if it's at all possible that certain lighting/lights could cause problems.
