Electromagnetical hypersensitivity ?? Please help.

What you describe could be simply a stress/irritation reaction to excessive
flickering of the light source.  Both sources you cite, a fluorescent lamp
and a computer screen, are notorious in producing a constant flickering of
light -- the illumination is not steady, but rather turns on and off at a
high frequency.  This can produce subtle "psychological" effects.  I don't
mean you are imagining the response, but rather, that the physiological
stimulation produces wide ranging behavioral responses that don't seem to be
directly associated with the stimulus.  Some people are very sensitive to
the effect, and some sources produce much greater flicker and at lower
flicker frequencies than others.  There is no need to assume any
"electromagnetic" effect, other than the fact that light, itself, is an
electromagnetic phenomenon.
