What is NDPH?
NDPH is a primary headache disorder associated with persistent headaches that continue and reoccur frequently, usually happening multiple times per week, and oftentimes happening daily. NDPH is a highly incapacitating condition due to its severe effects on quality of life and residual effects on mental conditions, sometimes leading to psychiatric disorders and other complications. Although NDPH is rare, the many harms associated with it make it a very burdensome and enervating disorder.
Treatment for NDPH
Although NDPH is especially treatment refractory, options for treatment may include but are not limited to:
Onabotulinum toxin type A
Intravenous (IV) lidocaine
Sympathetic nerve blocks
Still, even with aggressive treatment, it may persist and prove all the above strategies ineffective in certain cases. Due to the difficulty of treatment, NDPH patients are at particularly higher risk of overusing medication.
Can a Flu Shot Cause NDPH?
NDPH is a poorly understood disorder, and information regarding its pathogenesis is very limited.
However, although studies regarding the flu shot in particular have not conclusively been held, comprehensive studies have found that precipitating factors which may cause NDPH include vaccination for papilloma virus.
