Mild headache, clear nasal discharge on bending down. No injury. What could be the reason?

Lately, almost every time I bend over (and stay like that for a couple of seconds) clear water starts running from my nose ( not a lot, just a couple of drops). Also I ve been having mild headaches but besides that I haven t had any other symptoms. I haven t had any had injuries or anything like that. Could it be something serious? Thank You in advance!

Hello Josipa,
Just to know how long these symptoms have been existing? You are having a flu syndrome which could be caused by sinusitis or rhinitis or cerebrospinal fluid discharge. In any of the cases, consultation with an ENT specialist will be of added advantage. If cerebrospinal fluid discharge then a neurosurgeon will be the one to assist you.
First of, if you are having flu syndrome, then you can give a couple of days so that they symptoms to disappear. An antihistamines such as pheniramine or mequitazine or chlopheniramine etc, if symtoms have lasted for more than 5-7 days, associating an antibiotics such as amoxicillin could be of additional benefit. Steroid spray may help if you feel like you are having a nasal irritation or blockage or congestion.

Hope this helps!!
