My 30-year headache - but refused NHS funding

FOR the past 30 years Pam Mason, left, has been battling an almost constant migraine.

The pain is so bad she is forced to stay in bed for days, with bouts of sickness lasting for up to 48 hours.

But she has been denied a treatment she believes could be the last chance for her to have a normal life.

NHS Oxfordshire has told Mrs Mason she will not be funded for a £3,000 operation which will literally stop her from frowning, and could be the cure she is looking for.

Migraine surgery works by removing the migraine triggering muscle, while at the same time relaxing and eradicating ‘frown lines’.

This is crazy - I am not sure the costs add up - but an op at £3k is not that huge about when you consider ONSI.
