A 22-year-old male asked:

Can pains in the head be caused by burst blood vessels in the scalp?

Unlikely!: Although one would expect some tenderness at the site of a injured blood vessel, it should remain superficial and not cause any pain in the head proper. If your CT was of the head and is Neg. and the headaches continue, one should follow up with their physician and /or see a Neurologist. Good luck.
