In brief: Trigger points?
Trigger points refer pain to distant sites.
You could have a back or shoulder problem tha t radiates pain to the gums, masseters and temporalis muscles. This is an extension of TMJ type conditions.

In brief: Gum pain?
What do mean by gum pain? How are u distinguishing gum from tooth pain.
Pain from one location if its intense enough can trigger a headache secondarily. U should get the gum pain evaluated to make sure u don't have a decayed or abscessed tooth. If u have upper teeth pain it could be "maxillary tooth" pain which may be reflective of a sinus infection. This would be accompanied by sinus symptoms.
