This happens sometimes when Word tries to make the breaks and the
headings all the same paragraph. Select the whole thing (probably if
you try to select just the page break, you'll see that Word insists
on selecting the header on the new page, too).

1. Change it all to "Body text" style (or "Normal").

2. Go to the first word in the heading and hit Enter. This forces
a good "End paragraph" for Word.

3. Select ONLY the line that you want to be a header and apply the
Heading 1 (or 2,3, etc.) style.

4. If necessary, now remove that empty line.

That should work.
