‘Mom has compared it to a shocking kind of pain right behind her eyes and sends electric shocks,’ he explained.

‘It comes in waves, and [had] little triggers like being on the phone, texting, laughing, everything where she needed to use her brain, just sending these terrible debilitating pains.

He continued: ‘We have been in the car and had to stop the car completely to a standstill and just wait for these waves to come through.’

Peter went on to say that the pain had ‘disappeared’ to some extent due to Denise undergoing ‘high-intensity acupuncture’ at a local clinic several days a week.

Denise has struggled to eat, her son confirmed.

‘She managed to get a nice little plate of spaghetti the other day and she would not have eaten for over a week. She tried to spoon some yogurt and could not swallow it.

He also told the TV star’s co-hosts that she has taken the disease in her stride as best she can.

‘She’s been amazing. She still has her sense of humor. She said she thought she had come face to face with death, but just realized it was her reflection in the mirror, ”he joked.

‘But she’s been fine. She still has all her gags, she’s making fun of the situation she’s in, but she’s been amazing … she’s a real trooper we all know. ‘

It happens after Denise was admitted to the hospital with a rare nerve disorder called trigeminal neuralgia.

The comedian was hospitalized in late September after experiencing ‘nauseating’ pain, which she compared to being struck by lightning.

Studio 10 showbiz reporter Craig Bennett said: ‘You may have noticed that you have not seen anyone on this couch or on this show in a while.’

‘Why you did not see her in the series a little bit, is because of this reason: last week [Denise] was rushed to hospital after suffering “unspeakable pain”, he added.

Craig recalled how Denise had told him that the pain was equivalent to ‘being struck by lightning’ or touched with ‘a white hot poker’.

‘It turns out that she suffers from a rare nerve disorder that affects the face, trigeminal neuralgia,’ he explained.

Craig said he was in regular contact with Denise, who is ‘slowly improving’.

‘I know we all want to wish our Denise Drysdale the fastest recovery,’ he concluded.
