The day following a severe or even a mild migraine attack can be just as debilitating as the attack itself.
“The postdrome phase is the last phase of a migraine headache. It is usually preceded by the prodromal phase, the aura phase and the headache phase. The postdrome phase comes after the pain of a migraine has worn off. It leaves the individual with a feeling a little like a hangover.
People often don’t realize that the hangover is an official phase of a migraine, called the postdrome. Many migraine sufferers, especially women, do experience a postdrome after the headache, and it can last for around 24 hours.”
This is the period I am in now. The fog! And because I also suffer from NPDH, so I don’t get the full pain relief that others will feel. Just hoping that a migraine doesn’t decide to take hold again tomorrow. Sometimes that happens…back to back! These times are the hardest on my family and on me of course. But I can always hope that I get a day or two of “relief” at least from migraine pain.
