    I can't use an AirCard, or a Wireless Router for any length of time...RF exposure leaves
    me feeling in a similar way. As does talking on a cell for an extended period.

    Some people are more sensative to that vs. others.

    Sitting in front of the computer for more than 30 minutes sometimes makes me headachey and queasy. Pink and I have a ancient monitor, so I assumed the radiation was to blame, but then I felt headachey and sick using a relatively new laptop. Perhaps it's an electromagnetic field of some kind?

    Electronics do output an electro magnetic field. It's why they collect dust so readily.

    This could also be eye or posture related. I feel slightly nauseated and get a slight headache if my neck posture is bad. Maybe you need glasses/contacts or a new prescription for these?

    Neck-related posture:
    • The monitor should be an arm's reach away.
    • Sit so that your head is upright and looking straight ahead.
    • The top of the screen should be around 2 inches above eye level.

    Another issue that may affect you is items that can activate mercury in the body if you have any. I read that people who sit in front of a computer screen get charged up, why people with mercury fillings may procrastinate in front of a computer longer than non mercury people. Charge them up, put simply interacts with the mercury in your mouth. Mobile phones can too apparently.

    This happened to me a lot. When I sit in front of my PC screen I procrastinate, I zone out and just stare at the computer. As soon as I got my LCD screen to replace my old CRT screen from my brother my focus is better.

    An INTP that can't stare at a computer screen? That's appalling.

    Have you tried messing with the brightness/contrast of your monitor? If you turn your brightness way down, and your contrast up, that supposedly makes things much easier on your eyes.
