Title: RADIO 4 "Check Up" Programme
Post by pubgirl on Mar 4th, 2004, 12:20pm
For those people who listened to Professor Goadsby on the Radio this afternoon in the UK and have found their way here as a result, good for you!
If you have CH, you have found one of your new homes.

Here at ch.com and the OUCH UK site at www.clusterheadaches.org.uk kind people who know what you are going through will give you all the help and advice you can hope for.

You are not alone any more

I think some people in the Uk were going to tape it for the OUCH archives.
If you don't go over there, let me know and I'll try and find out who.

It was a half hour programme about headaches generally and surprise, surprise, mostly about migraine, but PG did us proud in the little time he was given on Clusters.
The Radio 4 website also now has a link to OUCH and PG's clinic as well, which is a huge result as usually the BBC refuse.


Wendy

P.S. PG was asked by the presenter what CH pain was like and he said something along the lines of:

"imagine having both your legs broken, and giving birth 5 times a day without pain relief, or having your head tied down while someone drills through your teeth-imagine that and know that CH pain is worse"  

What a great bloke!

Yeah, lemme know who.  If a transcript is easier, that works too.

Thanks!

I have NO IDEA how you do this but I am informed that apparently you can hear the broadcast replayed here:

This will play the R4 Check Up interview again! How I have no idea, someone else with a technical bent here must know!

Thanks to Paul for that!


Wendy

BTW A ram in my world is a sheep with bollocks!
