Interesting. I bought the Waveform light 5600k which according to Opple findings should be ideal.
However the moment I inserted the bulb, I immediately felt severe discomfortable and a migraine followed shortly within 4 minutes. This usually happens if the I cognitively percieved that the flickering is very harsh. The bulb was used in a mini studio size bedroom 13ft x 11ft by 8 feet high, thus proximity between source and my eyes does play a role in my susceptibility to the flicker.
They flicker more and more significantly over time until they fail completely by starting to blink on and off slowly.
When you brought up that they flickered more and more significantly over time, were they flickering low to a point it resembles like a circuit overload? Etc ; sudden rapid dimmed light flickering over 3~ 4 seconds intervals where it may even be visually percievable at times, and suddenly brightened up again and repeat?
the effects are different - common migraine typically that can be quickly stopped with ibuprofen, instead of my concussion-like LED symptoms.
Same. For a period I relied heavily on a daily dosage of naproxen 250g(strongly not recommended) to help me cope with my daily exposure to fluorescent lighting. The Waveform lighting bulb is really something else. Even a doubled dosage of 500g were completely ineffective against the migraine pain, brain fog, light-headedness and spinning sensation (probably vertigo migraine, but its very rare I'll have them unless I stared into slow flashing alternating of colours, like between extreme red and blue light spectrum e.g. the pokemon seizure episode that made over thousands of children unwell).
Beware battery-powered LEDs with dimmers - one of my worst brain zaps came from a dimmed battery LED lamp -
Exactly! It is way too stimulating
