Headaches & Florescent Lighting – Central Sensitization
It may be florescent lighting, or it may simply just be lighting in general. Places that have florescent lighting also tend to have A LOT of lighting in general (very BRIGHT). Because of this, wearing sunglasses indoors may be required. If you are lucky to have your own office, reducing the light in that one room may be an option for you.
But for those who do not have this luxury, sunglasses or working from home may be you’re only options until some other manner of reducing your light sensitivity can be discovered. I work from home, with no lights on, just a little indirect sunlight coming in through the windows. My computer monitor is set much darker than your standard monitor, and there is very little light in the evenings.
I have dim nightlights to help me maneuver through the house at night, and I have my bedroom window completely blacked out with a thick shade and soundproofing blanket, though Eclipse or “blackout” curtains will work for most people, but I needed sound proofing as well to block out kids and birds). I request doctors to dim lights during appointments, and I wear sunglasses while shopping.
