Runny nose only at night. Why is that?

Hi, Everytime when I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. My nose is running with clear fluid...a lot of sniffing and try to clean after I blow my nose... It stopped. So I went back to sleep...and woke up around at noon... My nose doesn t run. I don t have cold or anything. Only happen often in the middle of the night. Why is that? Do I need to see the doctor?

Hi Starsal,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic!
Your problem seems to be a lealing of cerebrospinal fluid or a Chronic sinusitis.
In CSF rhinorhea there is a rent in the cribriform bone and overlying mucosa and the brain fluid leaks now and then. It can lead to serious meningitis infection also.
Chronic sinusitis as such is an indication to see a doctor.
So it is worthwhile to get yourself assessed and investigated and treated as soon as possible.
Take care!
