In brief: Depends on cause

Brain bleeding can be caused by a variety of conditions.
Some are sudden. Such as those from aneurysms, avms or hemorrhagic strokes, and produce severe headaches. Chronic bleeding into a subdural hematoma can cause constant pain. After a bleed, the breakdown products of blood can cause a chemical irritation and produce headaches chronically. Brain bleeding requires urgent attention.
