On to something here - if 'thinking too much' can be a cause of pain how about trying to think when the brain is damaged as in dementia. I can distinguish between headache and brain pain and have argued that cognitive (brain) pain is quite different to pain related to muscle tension; raynauds of the brain circulation (my diagnostics) a head trauma etc.
