Well as some of you already know I do web development. That can mean 15 hour days behind a computer screen. I admit, I probably only have one or two breaks in between that for a maximum of 20-40 minutes. After about 7 hours I start getting really disorientated, dizzy and wobbly. First time it happened I thought I was having a stroke lol. Anyone else experience this? If so any solutions? Because I have lots and lots of work to complete

You should be aiming for more break than that. Even just a comfort break of a few minutes. Such a long time to be sat in one position

Frequent short breaks. Every 20-30 minutes take a 1-2 minute break, even get up and walk around for a minute. Look around while walking and try to look at the distance. (Moving from computer to cellphone is not a break, same is with paper or tv, looking around or closing your eyes is a break).

What she said, except try having a 45 minute work five minute break for water and food and going to the loo, and ten minutes to relax your brain.
