It would help to know what kind of problem the patient is having with
urination. Pain? Frequency? A precise description of the headache
symptoms would also be helpful. The more we know, the better we'll be
able to research this for you.

The subject is an healthy women. Never had an headach. A week ago at
the first time she felt like an explosion inside her head. C.T & M.R.I
did not reveale  any unusual finding. Since then , every time she has
to urinate a severe pain starts. She scales it in scale of 1-10 as an
11!. It take hours to disapeare and than starts again even if she
holds the urination.The pain is only inside the head.The doctors are
collecting the urine to check catecholamins. No results yet.

Hi Ossi,

Are articles like this one of interest:

"Med Hypotheses. 1995 May;44(5):369-78. Related Articles, Links  
The pathogenesis of chronic pain and fatigue syndromes, with special
reference to fibromyalgia.
Clauw DJ.
Syndromes characterized by chronic pain and fatigue have been
described in the medical literature for centuries. Fibromyalgia is the
term currently used to describe this symptom complex, and considerable
research has been performed in the last decade to delineate the
epidemiology, pathophysiology, and genesis of this entity. Although
fibromyalgia is defined by its musculoskeletal features, it is clear
that there are a large number of non-musculoskeletal symptoms, such
that we now understand that there is considerable overlap with allied
conditions such as the chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine and tension
headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and affective disorders. This
article will review our current state of knowledge regarding
fibromyalgia and these allied conditions, and present a unifying
hypothesis that describes both the pathophysiology of symptoms and the
genesis of these disorders."

The subject headings for this article indicate that it deals with
migraine, urination problems, fibromyalgia, pain, etc.  I have some
others that are similar.

Because of copyright problems I can only give you the title/author and
abstract information for you to get the articles on your own - is that
acceptable?  I can also look for web-based information.

the urination and lasts for few hours.This is not a fibromialgia or
muscoloskeletal symptoms.
