    Perhaps, "My (poor) head is throbbing!" (with headache due to sustained attention (concentration) over too long a time.)

    Regards,
    A native speaker is unlikely to use that phrase.

    More likely would be ........

    " My head (or mind) is in a whirl."

    Or, if it's really, really hectic ........

    "I feel as if my head is about to explode!"
