I recently read about Gamma Core being available via the NHS. I'd love to know peoples reviews and if they're recieved one - how they got it?
It's available at consultant level. If you're going to the conference on Sunday,there will be representatives from Electrocore in attendance to advise.
Hello, I am using GammaCore. I began in July following a visit to Kings. It is very straightforward to use. I am carefully keeping a headache diary for 3 months and we will review the results at the end to see if there is any difference in the pattern of the CH.
I use the device 3 times per day. If in an attack I can use it more frequently of course. Only thing I find frustrating is that once an attack is underway I just wish I could use it on my skull to change the feeling of the pain which is know is not what I am allowed to do! and would be pointless of course.
It feels like pins and needles, it makes the side of my lip slide a little downwards whilst in use which makes me know that I have hit the correct spot at least. I do not know as yet if it is making any difference. I am a chronic sufferer but I want to see the long term results.
Hope this is useful.
It is worth a go !
This is the second bout of CH that I'm using GC in. I'm having mixed results. Sometimes it cuts an attack dead, other times not.
I have also had the urge to use it on my templ, tried too but it made it worse!! ----
Hi Andy, I am still using GC twice daily morning and night, never missing. I have improved in that CH rarely hits in daytime. I just wake up with it usually in bouts for about 5 or 6 nights then a few days off. I do us more GC if I find an attack persists but always I just so want to use it on my skull! But yes it often relieves via my neck but during an attack the last thing often I want to do is hold my head upwards for the dosage. But I do recommend it, I am improved. Sue
I will definitely stick with it. What time of day do you use it?
i wasn't told it could be used preventatively
I use my Gammacore device each morning on waking and at night as I go to bed. I take two zaps each time. I usually have mine set to 21 but I think it is up to the user? If I am in using it during an attack Itake three zaps still at 21 then pause for a few minutes and another three zaps. I just find it difficult to use during an attack as all I want to do is press my head against something and not fiddle around with the side of my neck as holding the Gammacore in the right place is hard when you can't keep still - but I know it is worth it and must persist. This was the advice on the leaflet that came with the device. But, please check about usage with your own consultant? I was provided with mine through Kings last June. How long have you been using yours? Sue
I was prescribed mine back in August but by then it was the back end of my usual cycle.
For some reason my cycle has started in Dec, 5 months early, so I've been using it sporadically since then.
