Do daily headaches plague you? Stopping you from enjoying activities with friends or family? Are you missing out being productive because you need to go lay down? When you have a migraine does it seem to immediately help to be in a dark room?
You may be experience a a bluelight induced headache/migraine, while these are quiet common it is not as widely known that it is the light that is emitted from your devices that may be hurting your head.
Blue light is emitted from
Blue light can stimulate the trigeminal nerve, which is active in pain perception during a migraine attack. Blue light may create further discomfort by increasing the symptoms of light sensitivity, nausea, and dizziness. - themigrainereliefcenter.com
I have found for me a solution that works and has helped me to significantly reduce the amount of days per week that I am experiencing daily headaches is to wear blue-light blocking glasses.
I wear them:
On extremely bright, sunny days
In the office in front of a computer
In spaces with fluorescent lights (I am hyper sensitive to this type of light)
When a migraine feels imminent or has been triggered
Interestingly enough I have also noticed that when a dark room is not available and I am already midway into a migraine that wearing my bluelight glasses does help to dull the sharpness of the headache to a more manageable level!
