In brief: Unlikely
"alarm clock headache" that may last from weeks to months that typify cluster headaches, would be an uncommon side effect of nasal decongestant use.
What have you been noticing from your use of the nasal decongestant spray? How long have you been using the spray for. I have my patients only use such sprays a maximum of 5 days to prevent issues with worsening nasal congestion, etc.
