Why does my laptop make me sick?

I recently acquired a laptop after having a desktop for over 15 years. I'm thrilled, but I'm finding if I'm on it for over 30 minutes, I start to get a headache similar to the one I get if I'm on my cell phone for an extended period of time. I also experience a nausea akin to motion sickness. I wondered if it was because the scrolling speed was a little faster than I was used to, but I slowed it down and still felt the nausea. This has been consistent with each time I've used it. Does anyone have an explanation and, if so, a solution to keep the achy head and belly at bay? I love my new laptop and would like to use it without feeling like I'm going to puke all over it.
