So seen new specialist. Diagnosis upgraded from Chronic Daily Headache to New Persistent Daily Headache. Have new drugs to try.

Chronic Daily Headaches is usually applied when the person has a history of headaches or migraines that become more and more frequent until they are daily. Treatment is usually drugs that break the migraine cycle.

New Persistent Daily Headache is when a NEW headache comes out of the blue and just doesn’t go away – it is persistent and daily. It can have migraine symptoms or it can present as only headache symptoms. NPDH is often resistant to the drug therapies used in CDH. NPDH is a very new category and there is very little written specifically about it.
