OK

These indeed can be the symptoms of allergy.

Particularly if they are only part of the day.

However, they can be allergies to say, mold in the house.

You would need testing to see what you are allergic to.

Best doctor: allergist/immunologist.

Your primary care can refer you or you can go directly.

OK, let me know if you have further questions.
