My husband has developed a runny nose EVERY time he eats. When I asked the doctor about it, she ignored me and said that it was a minor concern right now. Anyone else have this issue?

He noticed it AFTER he started taking levoxyl for hypothyroid.

  • In medical dictionary it is known as Vasomotor Rhinitis. Unfortunately no information is available so far what is the real cause of this type of non-allergic runny nose. It may be a hypersensitive response to a dry atmosphere, air pollutants, spicy foods, alcohol, strong emotions, or some medications. Vasomotor rhinitis is not caused by an infection or allergy. healthy clear appearing nails | Natural Sleep Aid | Fast weight reduction

  • I have similar problem but only if I REALLY eat a lot (99% full) that I can't even take another bite. I only found out this pattern after having buffet dinners a few times.
