Think I had a csf leak. HELP

I bent over and all of a sudden this clear liquid discharged from only my right nostril. It sounds like csf but my problem is that I don't have back issues. If it was csf would it constantly leak or just randomly cause it stopped. I already had a minor headache before this and it's still Minor.... I'm only 17 m

In the absence of other central nervous system issues, I really would not fasten on a cerebral spinal cord fluid leak. That is highly unlikely.

Sinus discharge is much more probable, and totally harmless, if annoying.

csf wouldn't find it way into your nasal cavity.  its a pretty closed system until you puncture it with say an LP needle.

If you are concerned I say see your GP. We are not doctors so that would be my suggestion. If it is sinus they may make suggestions. They used to put everyone on antibiotics but there are other options. If you go to the drug store and get plain nasal saline and use it constantly while you are having issues that helps, plus gargling with salt water. Drink plenty of water. Water will thin mucus and flush any bad stuff out of your cells. Decongestants often make things worse. I have had sinus issues all my life and Doctors told me salt and water are the best things. Salt kills the bug and shrinks the tissue and water flushes everything out.
