I had a crown removed and the tooth pulled. So, yes, it can be done. My pain was definitely in the tooth though. Pulling it did relieve the pain. Your headache, jaw pain etc. could be indicative of something else such as TMJD. Sometimes a new crown can throw the bite off and cause these symptoms too. Do you clench or grind your teeth-if so a nightguard could help.
