Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Headaches can be classified largely into primary headaches (tension headaches, migraines, cluster headaches etc), secondary headaches (sinusitis, meningitis, refraction errors, increased intracranial errors etc) and cranial neuralgias. It would be best to have this evaluated by a primary care physician or a neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
The ‘lump sensation’ in your throat is called globus in medical terms. The feeling of a lump indicates that one of the muscles along the way is tightened. Although globus usually doesn't represent a serious problem, when present steadily for more than two weeks or intermittently for two or three months, a thorough examination of the oral cavity and throat is in order, especially in smokers. The most common cause for this symptom is infection, usually viral. Masses and tumors and incoordinated contraction in the upper oesophagus and psychological stress could also cause the sensation. It would be best to have this evaluated by a primary care physician or a neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.
