I expect that will then reveal that you have configured a forwarding
loop in your iptables rules.
Please check that you are using *all* of the iptables rules mentioned in
(when that wiki is fixed, it seems to be down right now).

To allow the HTTP standard headers, but not application specific
extensions it is simpler to use just this one line:
  request_header_access Other deny all

Then you only need to add "deny" lines for any of the standard headers
you want to block above that one.
