    This is truly bizarre. If I were you, I would go to the doctor and get checked for tumors, cancers, and other stuff. This is scary stuff.

    I'm sure you are not the only one. Most people just don't associate their illness with phone usage but it's not that far fetched. My theory (and it is only my theory until more scientific proof is there) is that radio waves are not as "harmless" as some think. It all depends on how sensitive you are and how much radio waves your particular phone shoots out at any given time. Some phone are constantly updating and working and some are not. Some people can take more than others. You might want to experiment by turning off all settings and keeping the phone on to see if you still feel ill.

    Have your doctor check you for Vertigo. It may be something from the screen that may be triggering it. Does it make you feel dizzy as well?
    That is EXACTLY what it is, the on sets of Vertigo. And you are lucky you caught it this early! If anything you should thank Samsung! Go to a doc now and explain your symptoms when looking at the S4 screen.
    Either that or you are just nuts

    Exactly. Does it happen only when the screen is on? Try to pinpoint exactly at what point the symptoms start. If the screen is involved, if you want to get to the bottom of it, you'll probably need to see a neurologist. An EEG, with and without the phone on will tell the doc if it is neurological in nature or not.

    You're not crazy. Electronics can affect people adversely sometimes. Good luck.

    I am not sure if anybody else has heard of this, but my Galaxy S4 (i9500) is making my physically ill. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and general discomfort since I bought it a month ago.

    At first I thought it was a bout of the flue that would just not go away. Every time I turned on the phone screen, I would almost immediately vomit, or dry heave. I went to the doctor, and they said all is well, and not even so much as a fervor - but he did tell me to turn my phone off for a few days since that seems to be an instigator with the problem I have.

    Being away from it for a few days (gave it to my wife, and I took her Nokia, and my trusty iPod for notes and wifi-only web) - all was good. I started feeling better, and I thought I was good to go. After work one day I took my phone back from my wife, and turned it on. Immediately got ill again - this time with instant headache, nausea, you name it. This was only after no more than 2 seconds after turning the screen on. I turned it off again, and the symptoms subsided again after an hour or two so I decided to go to our IT shop and take a look at a few other phones to see what they do. Of all the phones I looked at, the Galaxy S3, and S4 both gave me the same reaction. HTC, iPhone, and other brands did not affect me at all.

    Has anybody heard of this, and know why this would be? I talked with a few friends and all I get from them is laughter and "Galaxy does that to people" BS comments. I love my phone, but I also want to be able to use it. Is this a known issue, and if so, why only the Galaxy S3 and S4 cause this? Tablets, Note 2, and other brands don't bother me at all.
    Steve??? Is that you???
