Severe pectus excavatum, get headaches after playing basketball. Left foot struck hard, sharp pain in temple. Relation between pain and pectus ?

I have severe pectus excavatum but have been active my entire life even playing college basketball. I recently have started realizing myself getting headaches after playing basketball and recently just had an instance where while playing my left foot struck the ground relatively hard and I got a sharp pain on the left side of my head temple region. That was 2 days ago and I maybe 1 or 2 times a day get that sharp pain in my left head. Any correlation between that pain and the pectus?

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
No there is no relation between the pain in your head and your pectus excavatum. In fact you foot trauma may also not be related with the pectus. 2 days is a short period and you need not bother for such a short term pain.Its only if the pain persists then you should get your Blood pressure examined and also your visual acuity examined.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
