Hello,

Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, a new severe headache is a reason for evaluation.

It can be the sign of a serious disorder such as a blood vessel about to burst or a tumor but those are generally silent.

There are not actual pain nerves in the brain, so the source of the pain is somewhere else.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
