My daughter (19) has puffy eyelids in the mornings and, lately, pressure headaches. Could they be related? I'm looking for reason not to worry.

In brief: Allergy is possible

Checking for common allergies (dust mites, hay fever, foods) may detect a possible cause of both headaches and puffy eyelids.
Or she can just try taking an anti-histamine, such as Claritin or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) before going to bed. If this doesn't work, she may need additional tests, including an MRI of the brain.
