I get dizzy and the room twists when on a computer or phone. What can cause dizziness/vertigo when looking at a computer or phone screen?

It is worse in the dark. You also may be benign positional vertigo which is caused by loose stones in the inner ear. Visual vertigo is more central (brain). See an neuro-otologist for a more specific diagnosis. ...Read more

Nevertheless, it won't hurt if you go see your dr to have your ears and blood pressure checked and your blood tested. (on a similar note, my son got dizzy after riding the roller coaster 10 times in a row!). ...Read more

Retinal problem?: Floaters could signal a retinal problem, which could be a big problem if related to trauma. See your doctor ASAP for a more complete evaluation, and ask if any imaging or a referral to an eye doctor is appropriate. Hope this helps! ...Read more
