Severe headaches : If the pain is severe you should see your doctor. Headaches are seldom diagnosed by blood tests. Some things come to mind. A pinched nerve in the lower back of the head near the neck seems most likely. There are severe other possible things. Trigeminal neuralgia, an inflammation of one of the nerves on the face is also possible.
