Hard to tell but: Allergy headaches are often associated with a sense of pressure and congestion. It is possible for you to actually have migraine headaches that you are thinking are allergy or sinus headaches. Tension headaches are more likely felt as muscle tightness in the back of the neck and the forehead, relieved by warmth or massage. If you have chronic or persistent, frequent headaches, see your doctor .
