In brief: Normal

Sustained contraction of any muscle can cause cramps.
Some times low potassium in the blood can cause similar symptoms. Home remedies if it is due to low potassium is to have one to two servings of banana and or oranges. Contraction of forhead muscles can cause headaches occassionally.

In brief: Muscle spasm

Sounds like a muscle spasm and possible tension headache.
If recurs/continues see your doctor.

In brief: Yes this is normal

This is normal, you can sometimes cause very minor muscle sprains/pains.
I too have experienced minor muscle pains by jerking my head suddenly, with symptoms of slight headache there after. You should be ok, continue to the situation. The headache is likely a minor tension headache. You could take a Tylenol (acetaminophen) to help with the pain/headache.

In brief: Tensionha/migraine

based on symptoms, appears to be tension headache; however, may be part of a migraine, if noted to have aura, photophobia, phonophobia, worse with activity.
Would request some additional symptom info. Tx wise consider OTC pain relievers to treat initial sx.
