    The past tense of hurt is also hurt, not hurted.

    My head hurts. (Present tense.)
    My head hurt. (Past simple tense.)
    My head has hurt. (Present perfect.) NB - Rather unnatural and would be followed by a time identifier ie "My head has hurt every day for the last three weeks".
    My head had hurt. (Past perfect.) Same note as the last one.

    I would assume you meant that you have/had a headache. If your head was actually injured/damaged, you would use "My head was hurt in an accident" or similar.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I want the exactly meaning of two sentences. You explain that the sentence meaning for me.
    But, I want to know if I said that "My head was hurt recently" or "three days ago". Is it correct?
