Postconcussive HA: Your headache may be what is referred to as part of a postconcussive syndrome. Or post dramatic headache. The good news is these headaches are generally self-limited which means they tend to go away on their own. The bad news, it can take time. A good neurologist or headache specialist is well-versed in treating these types of headaches. Seek one out and they should be able to help you.
