Headaches: Fumes from the paint could cause headaches. Ventilate the room for a couple days and then see if that helps. In the meantime avoid all headache triggers. Avoid caffeine, drink water, excercize, sleep regularly, eat three meals a day, decrease stress. If after doing all these things and headaches remain see your physician.
