Usually not: Symptoms of a significantly deviated septum usually include nasal obstruction. I have not seen pain as a prominent symptom.

It can: If severe enough if can encroach on other structures of the nasal cavity and cause significant headaches. I have had numerous patients with headaches that turned out had a severely deviated septum. Their headaches usually resolve the day of the surgery.

Deviated septum: Sometimes if there are contact points with other anatomical structures, there can be pain. Have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.

No: A deviated septum means that the structure separating the two sides of the nose isn't exactly in the midline. This condition typically doesn't hurt.
