My wife has been suffering from a new daily persistent headache since Jan. 1, 2008. At least, this is the latest diagnosis; she was first diagnosed with hemicrania continua. The headache began when she was washing dishes. Suddenly, she suffered a pain like an ice pick poking through her right eye. Since then, she has spent time in the hospital, undergone numerous CT scans and any other test you can imagine. She has also tried all of the traditional migraine medications and some not so standard. Basically, none of the doctors have known what to do.
