New daily persistent headache (NDPH) is a rare headache disorder characterized by daily and unremitting headaches that can last up to 3 days. Headache onset is abrupt and the throbbing, pressure-like pain is usually on both sides of the head. In order to be diagnosed with this syndrome, a patient has chronic daily headaches that are present more than 15 days a month for more than 3 months. The age of onset ranges from 6 to greater than 70 years old. It is found to be more common in females in both the adult and pediatric populations. Currently, there is no specific treatment for NDPH. Instead, most are treated similarly to migraines with prescriptions to opiates or narcotics such as gabapentin. In order to avoid the development of medication overuse or addiction, however, physicians do not advise patients to use pain relievers for more than 9 days a month even though the pain persists for many days more than that. Moreover, NDPH is an intractable headache disorder that is unresponsive to standard headache therapies.
