Hello!

Welcome on Healthcaremagic!

Your symptoms are compatible with intracranial hypotension. Bed rest is a good treatment option for this condition.
If you do not have headaches which are triggered by sitting or standing up position, it means that you have recovered completely.
If the problem repeats, a dural patch may be needed.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Best wishes, Dr. Aida
