Exclamation Please Help Worried!!!!

I am 19, and as far back as I can remember I have been extremeley sensitive to light. I've especially noticed this when I'm riding down the road and the sun shines through the trees and when it hits my eyes it makes me kind of jump and tense up..I've always tried to explain this feeling to my parents but they never thought anything of it..Well i recently went to a haunted house last week and the strobe lights really got to me.. ever since I've literally had to keep my eyes shut in the light b/c it is bothering me so bad.. Does anyone with epilepsy experience this?? Could this be a sign of epilepsy?? Please Reply! I hate the feeling that flashing lights give me..It makes me sick

Jennifer,

Yes, it definatley is a sign of epilepsy. It is called photosensitive epilepsy. I would make an appointment with a neurologist right away. They can give you an EEG to see if your showing seizure activity.

Take care,
