In brief: Plus or minus
Too much of a neurotransmitter such as glutamate may provoke headache but so too for thyroxine, norepinephrine, antidiuretic hormone, vasoactive intestinal peptide.
Many times the problem isn't too much but too little (eg serotonin) or simply imbalances between several neurotransmitters.
