New Daily Persistent Headache

I don’t know about you, but I can read medical studies and statistics for hours and never really "get it" until I hear some personal stories.  That’s why I appreciated the news article I just read – not for it’s medical data, but for the stories it told.

The story of Jai Kawale is a common one when it comes to New Daily Persistent Headache (NDPH) (which I wrote about in June’s HeadWay).  Often (about 30% of the time) it all starts with an infection, like the flu.  But the headache never goes away.

Very difficult to treat, the NDPH is a medical mountain that doctors and researchers are trying to climb.  Check out some real life stories in the article – The 18-month headache

Also, for more check out the blog called Her Life In A Nutshell…, from Joanna who suffers from NDPH.
