      Amy, I just found this website and I've been lirnneag a lot from reading the different posts from patients with NDPH. I would like to share my medical story. I am a pre-med student that has had to withdraw from college and almost all other activities because of the chronic pain I've endured over the last 3 years. The pain is unrelenting and has brought my life to a screeching halt. The pain I experience is a non-stop, bilateral, dull, aching soreness in my eyes and in my forehead. It is not throbbing, or sharp, or pulsating. It is a static, steady ache. When different specialists have asked me about my headaches I always respond that I don't have headaches . Rather, I've had one long continuous headache that has lasted over 3 and 1/2 years.I reside in Texas and I've traveled all over America to see many excellent physicians across the various specialties who have done careful evaluations. Unfortunately, despite all of these efforts, my diagnosis remains in doubt by many and none of the medical or surgical treatments have alleviated the pain I experience. My father (a physician) and I have created a website that contains my full medical information, including imaging reports, pictures from my surgeries, and various medical articles we've pulled over the years. there is a lot of information on the website, but if you're willing to read through my medical history, you may have a better understanding of what I've gone through the past 3 years, what meds I've been prescribed, what surgeries I've undergone, etchere is the link:'d be so very grateful for any kind of helpful suggestion, recommendation, or referral. thank you in advance for your time and considerationmy email: most sincerely,Austin

      I have had headaches for the last 8 years. Some days are betetr than others. Over 30 different medicines over the years that were of no help. I even tried Botox .Been to 4 neurologists in that span. Finally went to the Cleveland Clinic in March of this year. After meeting with my doctor and telling him about my headaches, he diagnosed me with NDPH. Cleveland Clinic wanted me to go to an outpatient program called IMATCH for 3 weeks. Monday-Friday from 8-5. I considered it until they told me that there would be 1-4 copays every day. That and I would have to stay at a hotel every night at a discount rate of 80.00. What I'm getting at is it would have cost a small fortune. After thinking hard about the cost, I was checking on line and found the Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago. It was an inpatient and I was to stay at the hospital for 5-15 days. I did end up going (12 hour drive) and stayed for 11 days. I felt a lot betetr when I was discharged. They sent me home with 5 new meds and I was headache free for about a week. The headaches are back but not as severe as before. I am scheduled to go back next week for a follow up appointment. It is so frustrating going thru this. My home life and sex life has been a real struggle for my wife and myself. I wouldn't wish this on anybody. My daughter will be 13 in a couple of months and I just want to feel normal and do the father things with her while she still lives with us. My family means the world to me and sometimes I think that it isn't fair to them that I'm this way. Thanks for letting me vent. Hope you have a nice weekend!!

      All the basics. And V8 brand tomato juice is essential. I also like to add a bit of garlic too!
