I feel all these symptoms are related to the nose piercing. The nose ring/ the stud will be a foreign body in the nose and it will cause irritation leading to running nose, because of the constant irritation of the nose you will have head discomfort. Try some antihistaminic (such as cetrizine/ fexofenadine), this will reduce the irritation.
