Hello,

25yrs old female, a few years ago I was knocked around in the ocean badly such that i took in lots of water. Ever since when I bend over water drips out my nose. In the last few months it has gotten a lot worse. Now whenever I put my head down it drips and sometimes without warning when I am just sitting or standing. I don't feel sick and have no reason to think its allergies ( my eyes don't itch, no sneezing, throat is fine) Any suggestion you could give would be so appreciated! thanks!

  • You can have allergies like this without the symptoms of itching eyes, sore throat etc like you mentioned. I have the water dripping nose if I get too cool in buildings or even at my work with the a/c cooling things off. Rather than "allergy" type reaction I believe it is more a body response to the change in cool air from heat. It happens to me every where and all the time like that. After my body adjust to the change in temperature around me the dripping stops. But it does bug you when you can be talking or working and all of a sudden drops of water falling from your nose!Good luck & health to you

  • Thank you for the advice! i think the curious thing about it is that the water drips out whenever I bend over and/or put my head down...

  • it could actually just be saliva. if you hurt your neck or bumped your head, you may feel like you recovered but it may have harmed you tissues which also contain fluids other than blood. a doctor can do a quick exam and tell you if you need to take anything for it. you may just be seriously stressed.

  • i've been swimming and surfing more often and the exact thing happens. All of us seem to have that same relation with water so i suppose it's pretty normal. I would doubt it though if after a long while it keeps dripping even more water than the ammount that got through your nose, ears, mouth...!

Tintinitus, and old absesses healed maybe after getting bad teeth removed. But not swiming or anything like that. Let us know if someone gets tested. Thanks

I was swimming in deep water with a load of people. A kid dropped his goggles in and asked me to try to get them. I swam down about 4 meters and felt a loud crack in my head, not painfull but load. A few hours later water started dripping from my nose in large amounts, I just let it drip till it stopped, this took a long time but being on holiday I saw the funny side and just laughed about it. Nothing bad happened to me but I thought I'd share with you if it's the same.

  • If it is a Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak, the clear liquid would have a metallic taste to it. Otherwise it could be the sinus's clearing or a type of postnasal drip. In that case if it runs clear it means its usually due to an allergy

  • I am experiencing the same thing, I don't think it's water, there was a time this water drips from my nose i tried to examine it in my hands, while it is evaporating it felt a little bit slimy but not like mucus type of slime, it's a lot less slimier than mucus. a friend told me maybe because of water in the lungs, I don't know if what my friend told me is true or not that's why i'm consulting here.BTW... i never experience trauma such as drowning or accidental inhalation of water while swimming it just drips spontaneously.
