You are not taking in enoogh air and not using your diaphram muscles to 
support your air stream. That forces you to tighened up the neck muscles 
and in effect choke off your air stream which makes you force it even 
more. No wonder you see dancing dots on your screen.
Stand up, take in plenty of air and use your diaphram muscles and let 
them do the work. Either that or pass out or burst a vessel in your head 
or neck. Basic Air Sucking/Tummy push 101 needs to be practiced.
