Is it Eye Strain, Anemia, or just my imagination?

Is it eyestrain, anemia, or just my imagination?

Headaches and dizziness have been frequent for the past days and I find it difficult to last long hours in front of the computer. And since it is basically my job to be in front of the PC, I would have to withstand the difficulty.

Thinking it could be eyestrain, I blink my eyes and yawn every now and then at work so tears come out from my eyes so they get moisturized. I also changed the desktop image into plain moss green background so that it would not be too glaring. Once in a while, I also massage my face to stretch my skin and the surroundings of my eyes. I don’t know if that does something good but it somehow relieves me from the stressful fight against drowsiness or dizziness at work.

Because this kinda freaks me out, I am starting to develop a habit of putting tea bags on my eyes when I get to sleep. Found that suggestion from the internet, said to minimize eyebags or was it eye puff?

On second thought, I am wondering whether this could be anemia. As a child, my mother often told me I was anemic and I have thought I am such since then. IT is because I am often pale and weak. If it were iron-deficiency anemia, one solution would be ferrous sulfate supplement. If it were otherwise, I don’t anymore know.

Hmmm…I know I should see a doctor soon though. I would not want to stress myself out thinking I’m dying or what just because I am experiencing some ordinary symptoms of whatever. For all I know, this is all just coming from my imagination or laziness from getting to work. Haha!
