When the flashes of light occurred, they lasted about a week. They were little bursts of light that went off when I closed my eyes. Although this may have been a migraine, a fifth opinion from my chiropractor was given, and he feels that what I may be suffering from is a distortion of the cranium. These experiences tie in with our class, due to my perceptions at times being off. There are times that my sight becomes slightly blurry and there seems to be a disconnected feeling. The flashes of light are also a perceptional experience. For most of the time, sensitivities to sound and light occur. To cope with the pain, I try to relax, pray, apply slight pressure around my brow bone and avoid stress. Hopefully, my chiropractor and I can work on a way of uncovering what it is I am actually experiencing.
Here is a video about the aura when one undergoes a migraine.
