1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Persistent chronic (15 or more days per month) postmeningitis headaches are treated like chronic migraine or chronic tension type headaches depending upon the features of the headache.
Narcotic medications are avoid since they can cause medication rebound headaches if taken more than twice a week.
