The last phase is called postdrome- medication is on board, and hopefully the pain is subsiding. A person may feel really worn out, have difficulty concentrating, need to lie down or sleep. This phase lasts for several hours or possibly a day. It is necessary to note that overuse of medications can cause rebound headaches. Headaches are widely prevalent and can be disabling. Careful monitoring by a neurologist who specializes in headaches is often needed. There are "headaches diets" online which may be helpful in figuring out if there are foods that may trigger headaches. Finding various ways to manage stress is also essential.
