AN ECT ? one ? or a course of treaments ? Headaches may follow ECT, but usually not for a month or more ; and as you say the depression has not gone away, it is a marvellous amplifier of pain that arises for any reason. Best see the doctor who prescribed / provided the ECT and ask him for more specific advice about this
