Meeting Held on 5th August

Guest Speaker

Our guest speaker on Saturday 5 August was Dr Nicholas Cooke from the Painless Clinic. Members were most appreciative and enjoyed a very enlightening presentation and discussion relating to the persistent pain of classical and atypical TN, the importance of a correct diagnosis and the various treatments and procedures available to help alleviate and manage this ghastly pain. He showed us some valuable guidelines on how to successfully rewire pain by adopting a sensible and healthy lifestyle approach.  It gave many of us hope that we might work on an alternative solution other than going down the serious and invasive path of drugs and surgery.

DVDs and Information
