It is important to rest your brain after a concussion. Although it may take a long time to recover, you eventually will get better. Be very patient.

In brief: Pain after accident

Sometimes headaches that occur after a car accident are caused by a concussion.
Post concussion syndrome may cause headaches long after the injury. These tend to feel better with rest and sometimes medications, such as gabapentin and amitriptyline.
