In brief: YES
Weight gain is directly related to increased blood pressure (also known as hypertension).
Hypertension is commonly associated with headaches. See your primary care physician to be assessed for your blood pressure and new headaches.

In brief: Yes
If your weight gain has led to high blood pressure and or diabetes, there could be a vascular problem. Also, if you are under a lot of stress which could be concomitant with the weight gain, this could lead to more frequent and severe headaches.
