Reliance on Pain Relievers Increases Risk of Rebound Headaches
- You Wake Up with a Headache. Just like migraines, rebound headaches tend to develop in the morning. Pain begins when you wake up and gets worse as you start moving.
- Your Pain is in a Different Place. Rebound headache pain is typically diffused throughout the head, versus localized like migraine pain. Some people with rebound headaches report that their pain starts at the base of their neck and radiates to the rest of their head.
- Your Headache Quickly Gets Worse with Activity. Rebound headache pain intensifies quickly with movement. Walking, bending and standing up can cause pain to escalate.
- Your Headache Gets Worse with Your Mood. Excitement and stress also intensify rebound headache pain. Researchers believe that this element of rebound headaches may be tied to pain caused by increased activity.
- Pain Relievers Have Stopped Working. Migraine patients who suffer from rebound headaches often report that their head pain goes away for a few hours, but comes back stronger or that their pain intensifies immediately after taking a pain pill.
