First . . . I could use some prayers. I have suffered for quite a while now from recurring debilitating headaches. They have been coming more frequently the past year or so--about every week or two at most . . . and will carry on for a period of a couple to a few days. They bring along some other symptoms as well and it pretty well shuts me down so that I cannot work or do much of anything but writhe in pain for hours, sometimes days at a time. I've tried eliminating various food items, cut out salt, manage high blood pressure, watched the air pressure . . . and while these things do seem to act as triggers it also has a randomness that is frustrating to put a finger on.
Not having health insurance and living mostly hand to mouth, being basically an hourly laborer . . . with a house full of people I'm still largely responsible to maintain . . . has made it difficult to know what to do. As in, I can't really afford to get a bunch expensive medical tests done or get and MRI which is likely what I should be doing to rule out the worst potential sources of the pain.
It's been so bad recently though--and has got my wife and kids so worried that I am going to see our "doctor" (he's actually a "PA"/physicians assistant) and will try a few initial things out to see if there is something obvious that can be picked up (I've been told a Catscan is not crazy expensive compared to an MRI and could spot something big like a tumor or recent bleeding around the brain.)
Anyway, I of course believe in the power of prayer, so would definitely appreciate any you might send my way regarding this. Myself, I haven't ruled out supernatural or directed attack . . . but am hoping it is maybe just something related to ie., blood pressure which I am able to get managed better.
Thank you and God bless
