Maintaining dreads= 24 hr headaches?

So I've done my research and checked the memories, but only found one post in there relating to headaches. ( I can't seem to figure out if I already posted here about my headaches, and all the lj searches aren't helping... (so here goes)

My dreads are nearly 2.5 years old, and started from very, very, VERY long hair. Mine were started by backcombing, so I knew there would be some initial pain. I occasionally rub my roots to lock-up the new growth (it won't lock-up otherwise) and expected some pain from that for the first few months as well. The problem is my headaches never went away. Every single time I work on my dreads (2 weeks to 3 months) I get a miserable headache that lasts 6 to 24 hours. Does anyone else have this problem, or better yet.. have you found a way to avoid it?
