Hi, I'm new to this sort of forum. I suffered an mTBI two and a half years ago and have been trying to cope with post-concussion syndrome symptoms ever since. Things have improved vastly from the few months after the injury in 2012, but I find that, even now, I get severely dizzy and tired (to the point of needing to sleep immediately) if I spend more than say 30 minutes at a time at any type of computer screen. This totally effects my ability to work and is causing so much frustration. Apparently my symptoms weren't considered severe enough by doctors to merit further action but as the dizziness, fatigue, irritability, mood swings and inability to look at screens is still happening years later, I don't really know what to do. Even writing this is making me dizzy. I've been trying to research anything that might help but again, too much screen-time and I'm nauseous and want to sleep. Totally frustrated and feeling very alone. Any suggestions appreciated as it seems everything is done on a computer these days!
