Re: Just bought a Nintendo 3DS yesterday

Anything flashy is health hazardous other than your hand. When I was at the age of about 5, I played maybe 3+ hours of super mario bros 64 i think it was and i got this horrible migraine that occured and then all the sudden i dropped to the floor (sezior) and was'nt breathing.. About a half an hour later or somethin i woke up and had to be rushed to the ER. Playing these types of games on old TV sets and monitor screens should be taken very seriously IMO. Its also very bad for your eyes and can ruin your retina's permanent.

Kids if your reading this, please don't do what I did, even though there was light in the room, it can still be fetal and you may experience major headaches down the road (migraines).

You may have been unconscious for 30 minutes - which is a long time after a seizure - but you were breathing. I have friends who are epileptic and they all avoid flashing or fast moving series lights even on a christmas tree for that very reason.

Take care of you and be careful when you are driving. Some of the new cop cars have bright white halogen lights on the top of the car that flash in series that can have same affect.

I play my xbox360 daily for a few hours a day you don't want to play in a dark room and if your eyes start to hurt you need to stop playing

I did not *see* where you mentioned CPR. You're extremely lucky big brother was at home and knew how to administer it. Of course your family did not lie. And it does not surprise me that it took an ambulance 45 minutes to arrive at your house because I live in rural America, too. I've observed seizures in people that were triggered by various events.

Your parents were terrified ;of that I am sure as lost a child. I had a dog that had the Petit Mal type seizures for years. I felt so helpless when it happened.

I am very glad you are alive to explain it to other. It never occurred to me the pretty flashing lights I loved as a kid, and used as a landmark as an adult could cause so many unexpected consequences such as seizures.
