Usually, if your headaches are related to the TMJ, when your TMJ pain worsens, your headaches worsen.

Treat the tmj. If the headache improves as your temporomandibular joint pain improves, then it was the headache.

In brief: Exam
There are many causative factors of headaches.
There are also many different types of headaches. The intensity and location of headaches also vary from person to person. I often see patients with headaches when they are referred from their doctors or specialists whom have exhausted all other treatments. A combination of therapies is often needed to treat.

You wont know if the headaches are from you TMJ unless a dentist diagnosis that you have dysfuntions, treats the problem and thus relieves your headaches.
Many things in dentistry are only diagnosed by eliminating all other possible causes. Headaches are only one of many symptioms related to tmd. See your dentist to be sure.
