As a nurse I'm aware flashing or strobing lights can induce seizures in epileptic children. My grandson has numerous issues but is not epileptic. The last three times we have passed a cruiser with his lights flashing (all at Night) he screams that the lights are "making it hurt in his brain". He He attempts to cover both his eyes and his ears. It is really becoming worrisome. Anyone else ever experienced this? I will discuss with his Primary in July but just wondered.
I would get them as a child as well. My friend had chaser lights ( lights in a plastic tube that would run in waves ), I'd get a headache without fail. I haven't had the problem since I was a kid but I avoid flashing lights. Brief exposure to police lights doesn't bother me, I have to be in it for at least 10 min.
