can I get a headache from bacon?

I know this sounds straight crazy, but whenever I make a beautiful bacon, scrambled egg and buttery hot toast breakfast on the weekends, I always get a dull headache afterwards.

I know Ive heard about nitrates in bacon and whatnot and I know that a bottle or three of red gives me a headache...could the same be true for bacon?

I do buy my bacon from my butcher who smokes it himself. I will be heartbroken if I have to digress from my bacon consumption!!!!
