Hello there. I'm a 36 year old male from North Carolina, USA, who started having rare photo sensitivity issues around age 14. My issues sound somewhat similar to some users, but honestly much different than most. The first time I noticed it was upon trying handheld LCD gaming devices like the Gameboy / VirtualBoy / Game Gear. I would experience headaches, migraines, confusion, become extremely sleepy, or become very angry / negative, lethargic, weak, nauseous, and sometimes vomit, eyes burning, throat hurting.. very strange responses. CRT televisions playing movies or TV shows never bothered me in the least. I tried a few LCD CCFL screens through the early 2000's and I reacted to most of them. I simply abstained from all forms of LCD technology growing up, using CRT monitors and TV's. In the 2010's I tried iPads, Galaxy Note tablets, AMOLED tablets, etc, all to no avail. In 2013 I tried an Alienware Desktop with an CCFL LCD monitor and still reacted poorly. However, I tired a cheap "Zalman" 24 inch TN panel LED in 2013, and found that I had no reaction to this monitor. For the first time in my life I could use modern technology. I found a few other TN panel screens that I was able to use, so I came to the conclusion that something in most TN panels reacted well with my condition. I found that when I would use any sort of IPS technology, and a few other technologies in TV's, monitors and laptops, I would react. I still react despite 0 PWM devices. I react to a FEW select TN panels. Right now I'm forced to use budget laptops such as the Asus X205ta, with zero reactions. I also use a CRT projection 720 tv's. I'm only beginning to learn about "dithering", and I still don't fully understand it or if it's a problem with me... but it's something I'm trying to incorporate into this long-term battle.
I will add that I am extremely disabled in my health. I have lesions / scarring on my brain, 24/7 visual migraines, severe Central Sleep apnea, and a lengthy list of rare diseases that I won't go into because of irrelevancy... but I mention my health to say that my journey may be different than others here... but I still hope we can learn from one another. Thanks guys.
