Many people mention feeling “hung-over” after a migraine. This postdrome phase is often actually part of the migraine itself.
Most migraineurs have some symptoms after the headache phase that may last hours or even a couple of days. This is the period when most sufferers will have taken their medication and are in a state of survival.
Postdromal symptoms may include:
- Poor concentration/comprehension
- Lowered mood levels - especially depression, but sometimes feelings of well-being and euphoria
- Lowered intellect levels
