GammaCore

Hi all,

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?

 

Thanks.

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 !

Best wishes

Sue
