Vertigo Symptoms While Swinging Or In Movie Theaters
My boyfriend has had vertigo for two weeks now. It's seems to started after seeing a 3D movie. He gets dizzy and nauseous when he sees busy patterns.?

If he watched it in 2D, or had one eye closed, he would not have such a large disparity between the angles of the picture relative to his angle of viewing not matching w/ poor fusion.This may have to do with his alignment of both eyes not integrating the images/patterns well. ...Read more
