If you’ve ever felt a touch of lightheadedness or nausea while scrolling online, you may have had an episode of cybersickness. Cybersickness can occur when you scroll on your smartphone or computer, use multiple screens, or attend a virtual meeting in which someone else is controlling the screen. You need your 5 senses to get a feel for where you are and how you’re moving in the world. When your senses report contradictory information to the brain, it results in disorientation and physical symptoms.

You can find some relief if you take frequent breaks from your screen time and change your position.  If you like to read before bed, read a printed book instead of Kindle.
