It may not be...: The headaches that are apparently causing your doc to recommend rest. Rather the headaches are signs that your brain tissue is still healing, & hence, needs to be rested. Please ask your doc (neurologist?) to clarify this for you @ help you understand their thoughts on the criteria for you to start work again. Part time and light duty might be a good starting point.
