Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the headaches have started specifically after your miscarriage, then the headaches could be connected. Consider requesting for a neurologist opinion and go ahead with getting EEG and Brain MRI scan done to look for any serious issues. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. If symptoms are suspected to be due to anxiety, get started on counseling and medications as instructed to help with the symptoms.
Take care.
