Experiencing continuous liquid drainage from sinus, headache. What could this be?

Hi, I am experiencing a lot of clear fluid draining from my right sinus . This has been going on for three days now. I now have quite a headache . The fluid rarely stops flowing and if I lay on my side is enough to soak a face cloth with in a few hours. What are the chances this is CSF? I have not had any head injuries or surgeries.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
I have gone through your query.
It suggests that you may be suffering from the CSF Rhinorrhea.
Without trauma there may be the possibility of the CSF Rhinorrhea.
But exclusion of the other disease and to reach the near diagnosis you may go for-
1. beta-2-transferrin is the gold standard test in determining whether CSF is present or not.
2. High resolution computer tomography (CT) scans.
Better to consult your ENT specialist for medical treatment and further management.

Wish you good health
