From a PubMed article abstract: "Among non-responders, 92% described a buildup of pressure inside their head (exploding headache). Among responders, 74% perceived their head to be crushed, clamped or stubbed by external forces (imploding headache), and 13% attested to an eye-popping pain (ocular headache)." Ignore the numbers and the responsiveness (in this case it was to Botox), but note the different types of migraines. With this terminology, it seems like you experience "exploding headaches". Migraines can vary immensely in their manifestations; what's important is that, if you're experiencing strange, frequent, head pain or discomfort, you really ought to see a neurologist.
