I have the same experience with my RP. Doctors have told me that it is essentially a mixture of my brain putting information where little or none is present, and some physical phenomena as well. I too notice that the flashing worsens during stressful times. I liken it to tinnitus, which I also have a slight amount of, inthat when the flashing gets irritating / a focal point of my day, it appears worse. Sometimes I don't notice it at all just because I'm so used to it, but it's always there. Nothing but relaxation and reducing daily stress aleviates the flashing. Even that only goes so far.
