  • HiSo your are very fatigued all the time. Have you been checked for diabetes or anemia. very, no. like 1/2 of me is and the other not. it happens at random times and if i go to somwhere public (mall, big building or very bright lighted store) i go nuts!! i dont have diabeties b/c i dont loose weight, dont use the restroom alot or have the heavy urge to drink.but, i DO sit at the computer after school and am bored all the time. cant find my hobby and its winter, cold.

The visual stuff is likely to be worse with your frequent use of a computer. Life changes like moving to a new country can exacerbate the symptoms. also, how long will it take to recover? This is very dependent on you and your drive to recover from this. Please talk to your doctor about these somatoform physical responses you are experiencing. It's possible they will want to place you on and anti-depressant or an anti-anxiety medication, but in my experience this only prolongs the disorder. You must choose your actions and thoughts in such a way as to feel better about yourself and become engaged with others and/or find a good hobby or activity to do alone. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy did the trick for me, even without a therapist. You can teach these things to yourself.

  • ok, is electro hypersensitive a bad thing, or can it get worse over time. these symptomes come at random times, but commonly by these public places. could it be anemia, i mean i had a computer for more than a year and these symptomes came a mnth from now....if it would be anemia, are pills the only cure, im 15 and weigh around 110lbs. thx.

  • Hun really you don't want to go mentioning this electro stuff, Blaze hits EVERYONE with it, your doctor would look at you as if you had 2 heads, and put all down to anxiety. Just stick to the facts, tell him your symptoms & tell him you want to feel better asap. Regarding your computer you can get a screen thingy to cover your screen if you are feeling any affects from it, it helps your eyes & helps to prevent headaches from the glare, I cant remember what they're called but they're common & easy to buy. If you have anemia your doctor will be able to tell from the colour of the insides of your eye lids, he would then order blood tests & any other blood tests necessary. Good luck hun, hope you feel better soon.....:)
