You may see this type of Headache, not Migraine, referred to by various names: rebound Headache, analgesic rebound Headache, or Medication Overuse Headache. The official term is medication overuse headache, and that’s what I’ll be using here because it truly does seem to be the most accurate in describing what causes it.
Of the myriad difficult and frustrating issues that those of us who live with Migraine and other Headache disorders, Medication Overuse Headache, has to top the list. Susceptibility varies from person to person and with different medications. Migraine and other Headache disorders are definitely not one-size-fits-all.
