Bean, about noise, excitement and headaches! There IS a connection. Music or pleasurable noise at a certain level produces excitement. Rock musicians know that. That's why the speakers blast at Rock concerts. People actually get excited and it's pleasurable to them.
Above a certain number of decibels, which is not very much higher than the Rock concert, the music or noise will cause pain. Obviously, you are more sensitive to noise, especially if it is something that doesn't interest you. One of my professors explained this to a class in 20 century music. He had previously played in a rock band. He was a classical musician, but the money was good. The only problem was that he was only about 36 and the hearing in one ear was not good.
Funny though, when I listen to a Beethoven symphony with the loudest parts really blasting I get very emotional, and sometimes I am so moved the tears roll down my cheeks, but the same volume in music I don't care for puts me in a terrible mood. Everyone is different. But even music you love will cause pain when above a certain number of decibels.
