I'm trying to figure out why. Have you guys seen this website: http://www.rawair.net This guy is saying that outgassed chemicals from computers are to blame. But, then again, he is trying to sell air-tight enclosures.

Eye strain from looking at the screen all day could also be a cause of headaches. I don't get them as much now that we have all LCD screens, but looking at a CRT day in and day out can give some of the worst migraines.

Some people are suspectable to electronic interference, but that wouldn't cause pains like that. Thats simply you not sitting properly
