Why I have horrible headache when I take 100mcg of Selenium?

I take Now Foods brand, which is a good one so I can rule out exceeding strength of doses in their products.
What would be the reason for that headache?

Not sure what the reason might be (the symptoms of selenium excess are brittle nails, a garlic smell to the breath) but if it causes a headache, I would take that as an indication to stop taking it.
