Does anyone ever feel like this?

Today i was at the hairdressers and I started to feel quite sick, and quite hot, so i went out for some fresh air, for a good time afterwoods my stomach felt quite dodgy, but wore off about 5 mins afterwards :shock: :?

Mum thinks it was the smells...

Does anyone ever get like this?

I'm fine now. I suspect it was because of the numorous smelly hair products being used at the same timeand sort of overloaded my nose a bit :D

Smell is a problem in hair salons, but I get more bothered by the overhead lights. They're usually fluorescent and that makes me dizzy, especially when I can see them flickering in the mirrors as well as above me. It makes me feel as though I'm going to fall out of the chair, even if it has arms. I think the hairdresser asking me to tip and tilt my head in different directions contributes to the dizziness as well - I don't like to move in that sort of environment.

I can see the flicker of the lights, although they don't tend to bother me unless im under them for ages, (then i get a bit of a headache). I am quite lucky though, the person who does my hair is very aware about my dyspraxia and he is excelent (I used to have a friend come to our house I hated having it done so much) :)
