Q. I am suffering with new daily persistent headache. My headache began Jan. 21, 2012, and I have had it every day since. From what I have read, my situation is like others who have this condition. Medications do not seem to work, so I have continued to try new ones via a neurologist who specializes in headaches. All tests are clear–MRI, MRA, MRV, CT scans, blood work and spinal tap. I have occasionally tried alternative methods–Botox, occipital nerve block, chiropractic care, naturopathy, Chinese herbalism, massage, yoga, Thai yoga therapy, none of which helped with the headache either.
I have read that this can last from months to decades. Is there any current information on the most successful approaches to make the headache go away?
