Welcome to the forum Paul another bloke to add to the iih list, theres four or five of us now.
A good tip if your still having to lie down to sort you head is to have something really high in caffeine as this raises the csf fluid as the chances are you are suffering a low pressure headache. Red bull was always the one for me and i used to drink 8 cans a day when i had my shunt put in. If you dont like the taste of red bull go to lidl they do one that tastes like cherry ade and it cheap too.
