Flickering flourescents??

TomCat45 posted:
Over the past three weeks, I have been experiencing what seems like a flickering anytime I am in a very dark room or car at night time with bright dashboard lights or a light coming from a radio or alarm clock in my room. It's as if the light coming from these devices or areas are flickering or flashing, and I am the only one in my room or car that notices it. It is progressively becoming worse and more painful and quite the annoyance while I am trying to drive at night. I also notice it in stop lights (at night of course.) I also recently found out that I am anemic. I don't know if this has anything to do w/ my change in diet, however I do experience a lot of fatigue. I get about 7 - 8 hours of sleep.
