Hello all! I have had headaches since I was a teenager. They seem to come and go, for a few months they'll be horrible, then subside for a few. I've had two nasal septoplasties, supposedly a deviated septum was the cause. 2 surgeries later I still have a deviated septum and headaches. I do have lots of allergies, I am allergic to ALL grass and oak and bayberry but I take a daily Claritin or Zyrtec. That helps a lot and seems to have no side effects. I do have a slight astigmatism that I wear glasses for when I am reading or using the computer, and when I do that it helps a lot. But, I still get them, and a lot of times they're migraines with aura.
Does anyone know of another perhaps spiritual reason this could be? I have wasted so much time and money on doctors for the past ten years I am FED UP with it, I don't want them anymore!!!
******OK so Update***** I still am not sure what's going on. I have been consulting a Naturopath as well, and she suggested trace mineral deficient and I have been following her regimen, and still nothing....and I have a new symptom that is getting WORSE by the day and ESPECIALLY when I am in large crowds of people.....my ears HURT all the time, they feel full and heavy and they ring all the time, especially when I get in public or around my whole family at once....
Lastnight my husband was giving me a massage because my head was hurting and he rubbed my entire back and neck and head. It felt better afterwards. Then he had me laying on my back while he was rubbing my neck and just holding my whole head, felt sooo good. But then he decided to stick our heads together to see if I could hear his thoughts, being silly. And he said I'll think something, you see if you can hear it, so I played along with him and was listening. But as I was doing this, I could feel a stream of energy or something coming from his head, and it literally hurt my brain and no I couldn't hear what he was thinking which was the ABC's he said, but my head hurt again after that, so I just went to sleep.
Could having these sorts of headaches have to do with picking up on the energy of other people and it somehow physically causing me pain? I do pick up on people's emotions a lot and can tell how people feel a lot, and have a lot of prophetic dreams about people and events in their lives. For instance, I dreamt of a friend having a miscarriage and it happened a few days later, now I dreamt just a few weeks ago of my sister in law hiding something and doing something bad for herself and come to find out she wants to leave my brother and she hasn't been eating and lost a lot of weight fast. And I have a lot of dreams about time/and being outside of time and watching time happen....
As far as other people's emotions, when I am in a large crowd of people, I can easily pick up on other's emotions, and sometimes it can be unbearable. Like last week I saw my brother who just found out his wife wanted to leave him, and he was hiding it well, but I could tell he was broken inside, and it was like torture for me to be around him, I just wanted to cry the whole time because he was so sad. And it's usually like that when I am around anyone, more so when I am close to them and know them really well, obviously.
It just seems like a lot of this is starting to make some kind of sense. The doctors can't find anything going on with me. The Naturopath's advice made sense and isn't doing anything, and I do everything I can to prevent them. I am not piggin out on wine, cheese, nuts, chocolate and all the other normal triggers. And my ears are driving me crazy!!! I am so close to praying for deafness.......
Anyone know anything about being an empath?? How do I know for sure? How can I protect myself from other people's energy?
*****Update 2*** Right after I wrote this, I got a call from my Neurologist that I have a small Pineal Gland Cyst. They want to do another MRI soon to recheck the size to see if it's growing. So I guess there is a physiological reason.....hmmm.... this changes my thoughts some, but also seems curious as I've read about the third eye functions of the pineal gland....anyone??
