There are several things that can cause sensitivity to light and or sound. It can be a minor neurological issue which wouldn't be suprising if there is gut damage. Nutrients would make a huge difference in that case....so can stimulating the trigeminal nerve. I know that when I get overwhelmed that is hugely helpful.
What makes you think his mag stores are fine? I'm not saying they aren't, but that is kinda rare! Even subclinical deficiencies tend to take awhile to correct. That said I wouldn't be looking at magnesium as a sole cause regardless.
FWIW as you work to create balance, heal the gut and remineralize teeth I would venture to guess that things could make a rapid turnaround. Do you have a practitioner you are working with that you could ask?
I will also put in a final plug for homeopathy....that has made a HUGE difference for me with the light and sound issue.
I was extremely noise sensitive when my thyroid levels were off. I had overactive thyroid (Graves disease). I also had unknown food allergies at the time. Since finding out about my allergens, when I accidentally am exposed to allergens I find that I become more sensitive to noise again until it gets out of my system, and also sometimes (but more rarely) sensitive to light--just depends on what I am exposed to.
I trust you will figure things out for your DS.
I just want to quickly chime in that my DD was like this, but grew out of it and now, at 4, while she still doesn't like loud noises, doesn't freak out and go ballistic at, say, the car engine or lawn mower. She was always a HS child and will likely always be. She went through a sunlight hating phase as well.
Just to throw it out there, I've heard mamas who did a lot of fish oil during pregnancy (such as myself) correlate sensory sensitivity to that. Just a thought, nothing scientific.
