I have the same exact problem. It's really interesting that you described it as the white noise on the TV, as that is what I've tried to describe it as. It's similar to a busted florescent light which won't stop flickering. I started a rigorous graduate program last fall and that is when I noticed the symptoms. Flickering vision, a sort of dizziness, shakiness, headache, and constant fatigue. Over the summer, when I was less stressed out, the problem dissipated and eventually disappeared, but now I'm in a language immersion program and stressing over a seminar paper that's overdue. The problem has returned and I have serious problems concentrating. I can't think clearly and the quality of my writing has suffered. When I read I'll read a sentence and realize that it didn't even register. Can't stop thinking about going to sleep. Some doctors have told me absolutely ridiculous things, just as half the responses to your post are ridiculous. Obviously there's not a gas leak in the poor guy's house and he just happened to never notice it. There certainly hasn't been a gas leak in the four different places I've lived and stayed since the problem began for me almost a year ago. Serious, informed responses only please. I've heard enough nonsense from the doctors to listen to more of it on here. It is clearly stress related, but I have no idea how to ameliorate it; and apparently neither do most doctors. Yoga and exercise don't help. Exercise increases fatigue.

You can probably get her book(s) at the library. When you overextend yourself, the energies get unbalanced and it is the body's way of slowing you down. When you said you read it and it doesn't register, this is the very thing our energy class has worked on in the past. These are EASY to do movements, the daily energy routine is all you need to start with and I am not joking, it takes less than 5 minutes a day and it's free. Why not try it? It has worked for me on other issues I thought I might need surgery for so good luck.
