deviated septum headaches

For 2 years I have had a severe frontal dull headache and tension literally non stop in my forehead and tension, and upper nose,  and my nose is constantly blocked and dry.    Are my symptoms consistant with a deviated septum? (especially the headache part)

A deviated septum that blocks the flow of air into and out of the nose and sinuses can cause this.  Pressure can build up in the sinuses that can cause the headache and pressure sensation.
