What a pain!: I would recommend that you call to make an appointment with a neurologist and speak with your general practitioner. While you are waiting for an appointment, document the exact location of the headache, what the pain feels like, how long it lasts, what makes the headache worse or what makes it better, and any other symptoms associated with the headache (nausea, vomiting, changes in vision).
If in that much...: ...distress, please proceed to the Emergency Room. Meningitis and other "central" processes need to be ruled out given the symptoms and severity described.

Yes!: If your son's headache is bad enough to make him cry, yes he needs to be seen. Please don't wait.
? migraine: Intense physical exertion can cause migraine headaches. If you are younger than 30 and have a family history of migraines this could be it. The headache pain is typically one-sided, is throbbing in nature, with associated nausea/vomiting. Light and sound sensitivity can also accompany. Classically there can be an aura before the onset - visual changes, pins/needles arm/leg, or speech problems.See 1 more doctor answer
Muscle tension: Your body is very stressed and tense from whatever is making you cry. It sounds like you are tensing a lot of muscles.

Consider speaking: With a therapist. You are having a tough time and could use some help figuring out why you are feeling so sad. Your emotions are trying to tell you something and in therapy you can make sense of them. Emotions are like a safety valve on a pressure cooker. It is important to pay attention to them.
