31. Cluster headache
PERSON: mature woman.
DESCRIPTION: 25 years of pain; initial diagnosis of trigeminal neuralgia, gradual worsening year after year, drugs ineffective; terrible sharp pain that "breaks the left temple" for about one whole month, with a frequency of 1-2 times per year; pain also on the left eye, naris, and forehead.
APPROACH: short sessions; development of anaesthesia in the second session; training completed during the third and last session.
RESULT: well-being for 15 days after the first session, then freedom from pain for more that 30 days after the second session, with just some negligible annoyances.
UPDATE (2 months): total satisfaction; no further contact with the subject.
