Can my severe headache be related to the toothache and jaw pain in the right side?

In brief: Yes.

A toothache can cause you to shift your lower jaw to avoid closing on the tender tooth.
This shift can cause the muscles that move the jaw to hold you in an abnormal position and the muscles will spasm and this can result in a headache. See a dentist to find out what needs to be done to fix the tooth that hurts and this will all probably clear up!

In brief: Absolutely

Question is, why do you have that pain? Is it coming from a tooth or your joint.
Hard to tell without and exam. Please call your dentist for an appointment and feel better soon.
