What’s new with NDPH?

  1. My 14 year old daughter has suffered with NDPH for two years. I’d like to discuss this treatment with her neurologist. Is it available for treatment yet? Please advise.


    1. Hello, sorry to hear about your daughter and her struggle with NDPH, so difficult for kids and families. I do not know where you are located, and I assume you are asking about IV lidocaine. We are only offering it to our patient population in the Boston area. However, you can certainly talk with your neurologist about it and if you are connected to any of the large pediatric headache centers (UCSF, Cleveland clinic, Cincinnati, Mayo Clinic), it might be available and possible there. We are doing a study on NDPH (basic research to gain better understanding, also a study medication) here called Endogenous Modulation and Central Sensitization in New Daily Persistent Headache (NDPH) in Children. If you are interested in participating in this study, you can contact headachestudy@childrens.harvard.edu. Good luck
