I've never been on pred, but I would assume it to be normal since it can cause hormonal fluctuations. Most women can relate to the hormonal ups and downs and headaches.
Some men do get headaches hormonally related, especially if they have migranes.
The other thing is that it could be tension headaches (pred can cause muscle changes and pressing on some nerves can cause headaches...as can jaw clenching) and it might be helped by massage or a chiropractor.
