I can't place my finger or what syndrome dit was but this guy had a feet that were 1-2 too small, he got prayed for next to me and I saw his foot grow. It was possibly the creepiest time of my life. This was at Newday a youth conference in England and was in 2012.
Other healings I've seen are people bound to wheelchairs getting up running and never needing them again or people with glasses seeing. The great thing about Newday is that they ask permission from the people and the doctors to see their medical reports to confirm if it's real. There are many false healings for money out there and that saddens me. Also getting healed isn't to do with your faith, there are many people who aren't healed and I can make a more detailed post later on it if you wish.
I've heard of stories like that before.. Fakery is sadly common with this, legs/food growing are common, so I need to be skeptical about it. You mention doctor reports and the like. Faith healing has a poor reputation on this area, also because experiments to get hard evidence have failed. Did some digging and found this:

Chronic heart disease,doctor reports, and was running laps around the tent after the healing. I admit there's a part that me that's still bothered by reading stories like this. In 2011 I was confused for a few months when reading such stories from a dutch healer, who also has conservative theogy. I was very afraid that if those stories were true, such a horrible worldview also must be true.
edit: looked the disease up on wiki, and look:
Many POTS patients will see symptom improvement over the course of several years. Those who develop POTS in their early to mid teens during a period of rapid growth will most likely see complete symptom resolution in two to five years. Patients with post-viral POTS will sometimes improve greatly or even see a full symptom resolution. Adults who develop POTS, especially women during or after pregnancy, usually see milder improvement and can be plagued with their condition for life. Rarely, a teenager who develops POTS will gradually worsen over time and have lifelong symptoms. Patients with secondary POTS as a consequence of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome will also usually struggle with symptoms for life. In some patients the only cure for POTS is time.
So it's actually common to improve/heal on it's own.. For those not familiar with the disease, the article can suggest it's a chronic disease, and she was out of luck prior to the miracle. I can't back that up of course, but it's a example how many of these stories operate.
You say it hasn't got anything to do with faith, but that other healer did(and many others) I'd like more explaination on that yes. I'll be honest, I have a uneasy hatred of faith healing stories because of the murky line between ''healed'' people and people who aren't at such events, and in the later group there have been horrible stories. This is never addressed well, they advertise only the dramatic recoveries that seem to be impossible to happen naturally. Not to mention prayers for good health happen worldwide, and yet there hasn't been found any evidence Christians are healthier then other people. It's always these public events, huge audience, sometimes music to create a certain atmosphere. Always such a frenzied, miracles will happen here and now atmosphere.
There's this (slightly cliched) atheist argument against faith healing: God doesn't heal amputees ever. For some reason, this feat has always been to big. Often what's exactly healed isn't visible very well. Blind and deaf people sometimes have a small amount of vision/hearing left, which in some circumstances can trick them/the audience.
In that PM a few months ago you asked me what evidence would be Theism. Like I said earlier, things like this has thrown me off balance regarding it in the past. I already had become a atheist, but did more or less end up Christian again for a few months because I was so confused. It brought me no peace whatsoever. I explained here about the major injustice in the faith healing world, I spend days in confusion and fear about the ''why?''. The other thing is that everything else continued to point to atheism to me. Human psychology, our origins, the many things wrong with the bible.. I suffered from major cognitive dissonance regarding this. Because of my OCD tendencies it's still very easy to rattle me, but Theism as a logical, comprehensive worldview I can be truly happy, that has never truly happened. Not while theistic arguments always focus on things being improbable, special, and a absolute concept of God to plug anything that doesn't make any sense. Naturalistic thinking feels far more logical and right to explain the world, especially how all the ''good'' and ''bad'' things are actually caused and related.
