Orthostatic headache

Headache that occurs or worsens with upright posture. Improved in recumbency.

Previously it was often misdiagnosed as different primary headache disorders such as migraine or tension headaches. Increasing awareness of the symptom and its causes has prevented delayed or missed diagnosis.
