Blood vessels to the brain and scalp constrict and then dilate, irritating surrounding nerves and resulting in pulsating or pounding pain with blood flow. The underlying process is not known, however it is believed that it involves abnormal blood levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that may stimulate constriction of the blood vessels.
