In brief: Tension and stress

the tension and the stress associated with the crying will create enough muscle tension, and create headache.
relaxation, hot bath, message, and heat pad to the neck, and medication will take it away.

In brief: Not unusual

This is not unusual after crying hard for a while.
Try some Tylenol (acetaminophen) drink plenty and relax.
