Gliosis and Headache: It is unlikely that the gliosis could lead to headache. It is important to note that brain is actually insensitive to pain as it does not contain any pain fibers. The only pain sensitive structures in the brain are the blood vessels and the meninges. I think it is also important to investigate the type and the cause of your headache. Rec.: see orofacial pain or headache specialist for evaluation
