Have you seen a doctor? Seriously, why would you trust strangers to diagnose you via the Internet? That could be quite dangerous.
The symptoms you describe could be some kind of headache disorder, but they could also be symptoms of other issues, some of them quite serious.
As much as we'd like to help you, what you need is for someone to diagnose your headache and recommend treatment, and that can't be done via the Internet.

Anyone who's ever had an asthma attack knows about the chest tightness and why it occurs. Yet what about the chest soreness that occurs the next day? Why does asthma causes chest pain?
The interesting thing to note here is there are no pain receptors in your lungs!!! The reason asthma causes pain is because asthma causes you to breathe the wrong way.
