My apologies if this post is in the wrong category. Could not find any that were relevant.

Hi, I get frequent headaches presumably from my PC monitor but only when I am connected online. I can work on it all day with out any problems, but when I connect online, I get headaches.
I suspect that this is some sort of change in display mode or other change, when I am connected online. I have ruled out all other possibilities including EMF and EMR by using specialised meters that do not detect ANY change in EMR or EMF when connected or not connected.
I am connected via 3g, but the antenna is over a hundred meters away and hidden behind buildings. It is connected to my pc via Ethernet cable that is underground. My laptop is in the next room and is connected to my monitor via HDMI.
My electrical meters cannot detect the antenna at all unless right under it. So I have ruled out issues relating to headaches from EMR.
I suspect the headaches come from some form of eyestrain, but I do not get this issue when I am not connected. The issue get worse after we moved the antenna up higher, but still in the same place, and I started getting a much stronger signal. Before that I had no problem.
Does the display change when connected to 3g or 4g?
For example, could it change from progressive to interlaced?
Does the refresh rate change?
Any ideas or hints would be very helpful. If I can only get one question answered that would really help it would be "what changes when I am connected?"
I have attached a file showing the layout of my computer and antenna. But I am sure that the problem is not EMR related. It is something to do with the monitor.
Thank you. Cheers
