Go and check me out. I'm writing about the relatively new phenomenon of the migraine postdrome, something which I actually suffer from and which is, so far, really understudied. Go read!

  • Good article. It usually takes me a few days to recover after having a migraine, but I always thought the same was true of everyone.

    Very interesting stuff—I always thought the postdrome, feel-like-I-got-run-over-by-a-truck feeling was simply because I hadn't slept at all during the length of my migraine, so I was just sleep-deprived.

    Thanks for this. I always feel like I'm scraping together the scattered brain Bellevue at least 24 hours post migrane. Words often escape as well. Very annoying.

    I know someone who refers to this as a "migraine hangover." She was matter-of-fact enough about it that it hadn't occurred to me that this wasn't a reasonably well-known part of the syndrome.

    Thank you, I have just spent the whole day feeling vile. Trying to work with what feels like the day after you stop vomiting with a stomach bug or a really bad hangover. I get migraines around my period every month so I can't take days off work during this phase so I just keep going knowing that I will feel better each day. Unless I get another migraine. It's strange that none of the doctors I have seen have told me that it is a normal thing to happen after a migraine. I wish they had . Thankyou again.
