Something that probably doesn’t need to be said, but well hey this is me:

I’m probably going to go a little loopy, a little flaky and probably even more unreliable and/or cranky in the next few weeks while I wean off some migraine meds and start on some others. Please, please PLEASE call me out if I’m being rude, forgetful, creepy or sound in any way worrying to you. I wont know as I’m inside my head looking out. You lot are outside looking in, so I need you  🙂 🙂 🙂

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.
