I would like to put in a disclaimer before I begin. I suspect (although I may be wrong) that what follows is not what you will want to hear. I also
would like to explain that all that follows is simply my personal experience, and opinion. I do not wish to convey contempt for any belief system. I
feel that the road to God is very personal and varied. To each their own.
I get migraines. I get migraines with aura, without aura, and aura without head pain. There are personality changes that can be associated with
these headaches and aura phenomenon, although not every one. I will become highly irritable, or withdrawn into my own head, usually erratic, and my
normal preferences (food, music, routine) sometimes change. There is often confusion, and sometimes this is pronounced; I have forgotten how to get
home on well-known routes, gone the wrong way through the check out lane at the grocery store, etc... and sometimes cannot communicate well. I have
been blind in one eye or the other with these headaches, tingling sensations and muscle twitches (especially in the face), and there occasionally are
auditory processing issues as well.
Current medical science does not understand migraines well. There is alot of hand-waving in this department. Many physicians, and psychiatrists tend
to shrug off and sometimes minimize what they don't understand. I am not surprised that they ran a slew of tests and 'found nothing wrong or
I also hear voices, so does my mother and many of my aunts. They also get migraines. I do not know if any of this is paranormal. I do not pay any
attention to the voices regardless; ( my internal joke is that I might listen to the voices if they spoke english... Which they rarely do.) I am
inclined to think that there is some sort of auditory processing and/or hallucination phenomenon going on that may or may not be actually related to
these headaches. I personally do believe this is primarily (if not completely) biological.
These headaches/episodes can also be triggered by stress, or an emotionally turbulent time. In my experience many "born again Christians" become so
because of previous emotional trauma, or during times of current emotional duress; they are looking for stability, and the vaguely cult-like aspects
to many born-again infrastructures can be particularly appealing to those that are vulnerable. Also in my experience, becoming a born again often
adds to this emotional duress, causes more instability, and often an internal conflict. This may contribute to more headaches and associated physical
and behavioral phenomenon.
I do not know for certain, but I strongly suspect that your son is not being attacked by any supernatural force malignant or otherwise. However, I
also strongly believe that a spiritual approach can certainly be beneficial, and help aid and comfort the biological distress, as long as said
approach is positive.
For what it^ is worth.
Regards, and good luck.
