Hoping that “triggers” is the appropriate place to post this. My migraines are triggered by flickering light (fluorescent lights, driving past trees with the sun shining through, light/ceiling fan fixtures, etc). I went to go see “The Accountant” starring Ben Affleck in the theatre this weekend.
The movie has several scenes with very strong strobe lighting (in the movie Ben’s character exposes himself to loud noise, strobe lights, and deep pressure massage to address his sensory scenes). I closed my eyes but nevertheless developed an extremely bad migraine by the end of the movie.
Just wanted to let other migraineurs know about this!
