Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I a so sorry to hear about these headaches. Knowing the cause would be a major step in addressing this problem.

Headaches caused by stress has the following properties: Gets better with rest, almost absent in the early hours of the morning, worse at the end of the day and involves the whole head. If you do have these characteristics, it would be more related to your job.

Headaches are not typical of allergies unless these allergies cause a disease condition that provokes headaches which should be known.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarification if need be. Thanks for using our services.
