photosensitive, or is it just "in my head"?
I've never had seizure triggered by lights, to my knowledge. But I think my EEG reports mentioned my brain reacting to the strobe light. Though I didn't feel it.
But sometimes if I go to concerts and there's a strobe light, because I have epilepsy, I get nervous and close my eyes. If I don't, I feel kind of "funny". I always wondered if this was just my brain playing tricks on me because I suddenly knew I had Epilepsy and was afraid I'd be set off my strobe lights.
And last week, my brother downloaded a demo to this video game-- I forgot what it's called, but you choose a song from your MP3 library, and there's a little car that goes around a track collecting colored blocks, and it goes along with the music- the track, and the speed, etc. It's kind of fascinating, but the game comes with a seizure warning! Anyway, I thought this was funny, so I was watching my brother play this game the other night, and I started getting that vague "funny" feeling like I do when I'm around strobe lights. I didn't know if it was just my brain playing tricks on me again, so I mentioned it to my brother. He said it was making him feel the same way. He hasn't been diagnosed with E, but there have been a few things that have happened to him that sound like seizures, but he won't go to the doctor about them.
So I still don't know if it was just dizziness from watching this game, my brain playing with me because of the seizure warning, or if I am actually slightly photosensitive.
Could a vague "funny feeling" be seizure activity or just me getting nervous?
Should I stay away from flashing lights just in case?
