Tension: These sound very much like tension headaches and you may now be experiencing the direct pain and discomfort in the muscle groups which were affecting your temporalis muscles and producing headache. On the other hand, without seeing you cannot be sure. See a doctor if this keeps up. Hope you are better soon.
