Yep! I'm a graphic artist/writer. After staring at the screen for too long, when I get up or look away, I get a rush of anxiety.
I think it's just that things look a little different, because our eyes have adjusted to the backlit screen, so other things look less vibrant than they should. Kinda like a flash of minor derealization.
I notice coworkers who will rub their face, touch their hair, or exhibit other signs of minor anxiety when they stand up from the computer. So, maybe it isn't too unusual.
