My 7 month old LOVES to scream and not just a little innocent scream a very loud, high pitched, ear piercing scream! He does it when theres nothing wrong even if im right in front of him playing with him and sometimes he smiles at me when i tell him to stop and other times he just screams because he wants something(which i can understand). He is a little spoiled being with mom almost 24/7, but I cant take the migraines much longer. I know theres nothing wrong with him I just REALLY need help!

I agree with Kristin, just ignore it. Or buy ear plugs? lol
Yep, he's testing out his voice. It's normal. The novelty will wear off soon enough. Then when he's 3 years old and talking your ear off 24/7, you'll be missing the innocent baby-screaming days. ;)

You can't get him to stop. He's testing out all the sounds he can make. Start ignoring him when he does it, or, if it's safe, walk away. He is doing it in part because he's getting a reaction from you. React when he makes sounds in a range that doesn't hurt you and shatter glass. Ask your mom to help with this.
