While the eclipse was a sight to see, the headaches reported after the spectacle also became a trending topic.
Mashable reports that most Americans appear to be suffering from post eclipse hypochondria. Following the eclipse, Google trends show that eclipse headaches worried people all around the country. People searched topics such as solar eclipse headache, eyes hurt and seeing spots jumped up.
Professionals warned that to avoid eye damage, no one should look directly into the sun without proper equipment during the eclipse. Most of the discomfort could be from standing outdoors in the bright sun and then going back to that darker office and possible eye straining during the eclipse.
