In brief: Cough headaches

are well known. Most of them are harmless.
The actual cause is not well-established but may relate to pressure exerted in and around blood vessels in the area of the pain/scalp muscles. They usually spontaneously improve over time. Cough headaches which are longer lasting or associated with unsteadiness or dizziness could be related to a defect in the cerebellum and need prompt evaluation.
