Why does water drips out of my nose after bending over?

Why does water drips out of my nose after bending over I am a 37 year old male and the last few years I have noticed that after bending over or tipping my head down, a water like substance drips from my nose. It is clear. What could be causing this? Is it something I should be concerned about?

It is allergic rhinitis so you have not to worry.
Due to slight congestion in the nose there is secretion in the nose leading in to running nose.
Take some anti histaminic and you will be alright.
ok and bye.

1. You should try and collect this fluid in a sterile container and get it examined to rule out CSF (Cerebro Spinal Fluid). Get a Beta-2 Transferrin test on the fluid, if available.

2. Your symptoms are similar to the 'teapot' sign or 'reservoir sign', where this fluid drips out on bending forwards or looking down.

3. A simple test is the 'Handerchief Test': Normal nasal secretions contain mucus which will stain and stiffen a soft handkerchief on drying, but CSF will not.

4. Do you have any history of recent head injury? Any ear complaints? If the above mentioned tests are negative, then you have allergic rhinitis.

5. This is by no means an exhaustive investigation. Further testing depends upon the results (of these above mentioned tests) that you may post here.

Welcome to HealthCareMagic Forum.

Dear I recommend, a CT PNS. with beta 2 transferrin test for CSF.

you may be suffering from CSF rhinorrhoea. OR just allergic rhinitis if u encounter recurrent bouts of sneeezing.

Consult an ent surgeon soon.
