Is waking up w/a stuffy nose and headache a part of allergies?

My husband has been waking up with a slight stuffy nose that he says feels like pressure at times and has a slight headache. He has some drainage that goes down his throat and he says that he has some congestion that he has to cough up and spit out in the morning. Does this sound typical of allergies? The weather has been really changing alot here and he wanted to know if that was all allergy related. I wasn't sure.

It could be allergy related or it could be a viral infection. Those two things will cause his sinuses to be congested, which in turn will cause the headache and the post nasal drip.

He could be allergic to dust mites or mold that has entered the heating ducts if it is an allergy.

That's how I am every morning. (though since my surgery I don't have the headache)
