One of the ways I help non suffers relate to the pain is to tell them to take their right hand and hold it palm down in front of them, next make a fist and keep looking at the thumb nail,while looking at their thumb nail raise the hand to their face and turn the thumb so the nail is facing down and the tip of the thumb is facing them, next place the thumb up to their eye and press on the eye socket on the top portion right next to the nose, there is a small notch in the bone there. Press in and upwards with some force, This is where the Ganglia never is located and if they get it right within a few seconds they will have to stop pressing due the the pain in their eye and fore head. Now imagine you have just taken too large a bite of Ice Cream and your pressing on this spot at the same time, then add 45 monutes and an axe stuck in the top of you head and you've got a small idea of what we are trying to relate.
