I would translate this more like "my head hurts", but does Ukrainian not have a word for headache like the russian головная боль?

It has: головний біль.

The construction you suggest "U mene holovnyj bil'" sounds like smth official, like a question from a doctor: "Чи відчуваєте ви головний біль?..." When speaking to a friend or a mom, I wouldn't use that construction.
