Posted on Mon, 25 May 2015
Question: Hi, I have been struggling with this problem for quite some time now and can't seem to get any answers from the Medical community. I have had bowel issues for years, and there are times when I am having a movement that my nose will start to run profusely the entire time. Also (sometimes) Nausea and profuse salivating will also accompany the runny nose, nausea, and sometimes sheeting sweat. Can it because of sympathetic nerve issues? Please help, I don't know where else to turn.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concerns.

1. You are saying to have constipation problems which has been aggravated by using more fiber while prune juice is helping you more.

When you have constipation problems, the fecal mass takes longer staying inside the bowels, causing distention and pain.

When you pass the motion, as the first part of fecal mass is hard, you need to strain more and for longer. This will induce vasovagal response with the symptoms you are currently reporting: sweating, runny nose.

2. Nausea is also provoked by the straining which is associated with reactive salivating.

That's why I suggest to correct your constipation problems first and you won't have such problems anymore. Prune juice is not the only solution. Increase water intake, eating more fruits like kiwi, pear, etc. can also help. Long walking can also be a good solution.

3. With regards to the pain you are feeling on the right side of the neck and right arm, to my opinion, it might be associated to spondyloarthrosis. A further examination by neurologist is needed to exclude nerve damage and MRI of spinal cord is advised to determine the right diagnosis.

For the moment, I can only advise to apply warm compresses and take OTC analgesic and apply analgesic cream/gel locally. Physiotherapy can also be helpful.

Hope it was of help!
