Electronic Seizure Triggers

How many of you have seizures or auras that are triggered by spending to much time on computers or mobile phones?

Hi Darryl!

Yes! I have been on ZOOM pretty much all day for work and experienced focal seizure. I have found help there are blu ray blocking glasses, I haven't experienced seizures since!

I sent a link for amazon (this is the stylish pair I wear :D There are plenty of cool ones out there! number can only be seen by the question and answer creators)&sr=8-6

Hope this helps be well!

I agree with both of youy concerning taking breaks whenever you need them
if your neck hurts or you have problems with your eyesight.
ONE thing that also helps while working on your computer is making sure you have a "Good bright light source near your desk"
ANOTHER thing, make sure that the room is at a "Comfortable temperatutre"
NOT TOO HOT or Cold But inbetween & make sure you also have a glass
of something cool to drink. Staying hydrated is VERY IMPORTANT !!!

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member I agree with taking a break sometimes I get a sore neck typing on my phone and just give myself a break sometimes from replying to texts or emails and give my neck a massage x x

Sitting in front of a computer monitor is a trigger for me, the amount of time before seizures being change. After they start I have been advised to stop using my computer.
