Omit Comma?

It was hard to tell whether it was nerves or sickness, although both were an option.

Generally, I know the rule is that when the dependant clause follows the main clause, the comma is usually omitted, but I read there's an exception when "the clause is plainly nonrestrictive, that is, adds a reason or concession introduced by because, since, as, though." Could this qualify? Or must the comma be omitted?
