Many reasons: The cause of the headaches can be multkiple - some serious, some not. Depends on your age, depends on what you mean by 'an unreasonable amount', depends on how long they last, any precipitating factors, etc. You would most likely benefit from an elective workup from your primary care doctor.

Seek medical care: If the headache is terrible, you should seek medical evaluation asap. It could be a serious vascular (but treatable) problem. The headache could also be related to the chest pathology, which is likely pleurisy (an inflammation possibly related to na infection).

Maybe something else: Go see a hadache s[pecialist for a proper workup. Can be caused by allergies to foods, stress, unlikely a migraine (which is an overused diagnosis).
