Troubled with migraine hangover?


The entire body can be affected during a migraine attack, not just the head. From abdominal issues to cognitive impairment to sensitivity to touch, the malfunctioning of several bodily functions can wreak havoc on your entire system. The medical term for a migraine hangover is postdrome. Stiffness in the neck and shoulders, tenderness in the scalp and dizziness are common “migraine hangover” symptoms. Everyone experiences the postdrome phase differently: it does not necessarily occur in everyone with migraine, nor does it happen after every attack. Following these steps regularly may help you ward off lingering symptoms after a migraine. Drink plenty of water, maintain regular eating and sleeping patterns and ease stress, if possible, try to lighten your load for next 24 hours after the headache pain ends, stop taking pain medicine once the headache is gone.
