If your head hurts in the back, does that mean your brain hurts or bled?

In brief: Rarely

If you do have a bleed into the brain it often will present with a severe headache - "the worst headache of your life" is common.
However, most headaches are not the result of a bleed into the brain. If you are concerned you can get checked out at a local hospital or doctor's office.
