Can it trigger my epilepsy?

Using a virtual reality headset can cause motion sickness. There have also been reports of first-person games causing slight nausea.

Games must warn if they have flashing lights or animations.

Sudden loud noises can trigger a seizure in some people. Doctors know these as startle seizures, or reflex seizures.

Whilst many use games to relax, some games can also be causes of stress because of their fast-paced action and combat.

Gaming for too long can affect your nutrition which in turn impacts your epilepsy health. Keep a bottle of water and a snack supply with you.

Playing games for extended periods or late at night can disrupt your sleep and impact your epilepsy. Remember to take breaks regularly.
