In brief: It's possible!

Carbonated drinks can contain many additives, including caffeine, that can cause headaches in people sensitive to them. Also, anything that is really cold can cause an 'ice cream headache, ' due to chilling and constricting the blood vessels that pass by the back of the palate.
