A water like clear fluid runs down my nose when I bend down. Even …

  • What’s a good investment for 2022?

    This might sound unconventional, but hands down I’d go with blue-chip art. A Basquait painting soared 2,209,900% when it was bought for $5,000 and sold for $110,500,000. And if you(Continue reading)

    I am a neurosurgeon and what you are describing could be a case of spontaneous CSF rhinorrhea. CSF means cerebrospinal fluid and it’s the fluid which is giving nutrition and cushioning effect to your brain. And rhinorrhea means leaking from nose. This leaking usually is more on sneezing coughing or bending forwards….and there is a salty taste to it. This usually starts when there is some bony defect within the nose which let’s the sterile CSF out through the nose.

    The feeling of dizziness and black outs can also be explained because if this as it can cause intracranial hypotension ( sorry for using medical terms). Intracranial hypotension occurs when the Cushioning effect of CSF is lost momentarily and the pressure the head decreases causing dizziness.

    You should get yourself evaluated by a neurosurgeon. As this leaking is not a normal thing and this increases the chance of infection spreading into the sterile csf and which has its own consequences ( details your doctor can provide).

    First he will ask you to collect that fluid in a sterile container and do some tests to make are that it’s CSF and nothing else.

    And after that depending on the results, further imaging to find the cause will be done.

    This should not be taken lightly and visit your doctor as early as possible.Dont get scared or alarmed.All these are treatable conditions.

    As far as the question of memory impairment is concerned. There is no way this CSF leak can cause memory loss. There are no neurons lost ( it’s absolutely absurd) and the memory region of the brain is in entirely different location.

    You can get your memory also evaluated by your neurosurgeon ( but I am pretty sure it’s not needed).

    To repeat again….don’t take this condition lightly.If you have

    1) Watery discharge coming thru nose with sneezing coughing bending forward etc

    2) If that fluid is salty to taste

    3) If you are having some fever along with the leak

    4) If you have a history of injury to nose , head or were involved in some accident many years ago.

    If you have these symptoms.Go visit your doctor. it’s essential.

    As someone who has had 3 CSF(Cerebrospinal Fluid) leaks, it sounds like that’s what you have. Do you also have a headache with position change, especially lying down to sitting up? Have you ever had any type of surgery on your head or sinuses? Any brain surgery? How about bad sinus infections, or any head trauma? These can cause CSF leaks. Mine happened during and after surgery for a Pituitary Tumor. You need to get this checked out immediately! It’s dangerous to have a CSF leak. Please see a reputable Neurosurgeon. They will need to do an MRI. Understand that it is not always easy to see a CSF leak on an MRI, especially as older injury. It may require the Neurosurgeon to use a magnifying glass or other type of magnifier to look at your MRI and locate the leak. Hopefully, yours will be obvious, like mine was. Hopefully, you live near a major city with reputable Neurosurgeons. If not, I would drive or fly to find one. I, personally, went to Seattle, WA for my Neurosurgery, as the doctors there were excellent. I had great care there. No matter what, it is imperative to have this checked out by a reputable(and board certified) Neurosurgeon IMMEDIATELY! Best wishes!

    if u cant sniff and fluid is very thin than it seems to be csf (cerebrospinal fluid)plese go for fluid examamination

    That is cerebrospinal fluid that is leaking. This is dangerous and you need to be evaluated by a neurologist or neurosurgeon immediately. If you can’t get to a doctor, head to the ER and tell them you are leaking cerebrospinal from your nose and eye and include the feelings in your head and your pain. Be insistent. They may not believe you initially. If there is a way out of the brain for the fluid, there is also a way in for infection. This has to be fixed.…

    When you see your doctor about this, he can test to see if the fluid is cerebral-spinal fluid. Although this dripping may be from the sinuses, it’s possible that there’s a slow leak somewhere in the brain covering, and the fluid is from this. I’ve read that one of the ways to test for this, is to test the fluid for glucose. Cerebral spinal fluid will have glucose in it, whereas mucous from the sinuses will not. (I think they can use the dipsticks that they use to test urine for glucose, which every doctor’s office uses.)

    If this information is not correct, your doctor should know what to do to test it.


    Im dealing with the exact same thing. But i have a sore at the tip of my nosyril which the feeling causes my right eye to water and then my nose runs more. Constant tickle in my right nostril. I had this last year. Both sides run but thr righg is like a faucet…

    Your symptoms of a runny nose seem very similar to mine some of the time. My answer below worked for me, my friends and my family for both stuffy and runny noses. The thin liquid appears to escape despite the stuffiness that is probably going on in your sinuses. Note that stuffy sinuses could cause dizziness as it has for me. Linda Boguslav’s answer to How do you clear a stuffy nose naturally? This will kill bacteria, fungus, viruses and mold that could be causing you so many problems. Let us know if you get results, good or bad. Your goal would be to clear out whatever is stuck in your head.…


    Thanks for your query on quora

    “As” per your clinical history is concerned please follow like this –

    1)Do a clinical examination by your Doctor[ENT]and do few investigations like [Nasal endoscopy,CBC with differential,Nasal and sinus cultures and MRI scan]

    2)Do take otc medication [Actifed plus]twice a day for 10 days,add [oxymetazoline] nasal spray and other medications will be added after nasal endoscopy.

    Do follow lifestyle modifications like this –

    1)Avoid upper respiratory infections. Minimize contact with people who have colds. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, especially before your meals.

    2)Carefully manage your allergies. Work with your doctor to keep symptoms under control.

    3)Avoid cigarette smoke and polluted air. Tobacco smoke and air contaminants can irritate and inflame your lungs and nasal passages.

    4)Use a humidifier. If the air in your home is dry, such as it is if you have forced hot air heat, adding moisture to the air may help prevent sinusitis.

    Hope that helps

    So very odd, please see a competent doc. I can only remember such things happening after a brain operation or after a skull fracture where cerebro-spinal fluid was leaking out, but that often was from the ear.

    Though I’m not really trying to scare you, I fear you might have CSF Rhinorrhea or Spontaneous Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak Syndrome.

    This is a condition which results in drainage of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) due to a breach in the brain membrane.

    Though this condition is rare, but it’s not uncommon. People usually ignore this symptom to Runny Nose.

    This syndrome may lead to Intracranial Hypotension, and an infection might be much more dangerous.

    I don’t know that you’re having this condition, but I’d humbly request you to consult an expert neurologist without any further ado. It’s treatable. Take care!!! 🙂

    I might be wrong, but it may be due to masturbation. Please see the detailed answer through the given link , the symptoms are coinciding. Anonymous’ answer to What are the side effects (positive and negative), if any, of masturbation?…

    I would advise you go to the hospital and check it out. If it was a simple nosebleed, it wouldn’t be too worrisome but add the sharp pain and it’s another ball game. Please check it out

    Leaking, and primarily from only one nostril, is often reported when people have csf leaks. I would talk to your doctor.
