Nose Drips

Over the past week or so I noticed that every time I bend over to pick something up, tie my shoe, pet the dog my nose starts dripping.  It is a clear drip. Every once in awhile it will just drip for no reason. I do not have any allergies,
a cold, sore throat, or any other reasons that this goes with.  I did however have a head injury in 2005. This may sound silly but is my brain leaking?

Thank you

Hi, your symptoms are unlikely to be due to CSF rhinorrhea. A cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhoea occurs when there is a fistula between the dura and the skull base and discharge

of CSF from the nose. CSF rhinorrhea or liquorrhea commonly occurs following head trauma (fronto-basal skull fractures), as a result of intracranial surgery, or destruction lesions. As the injury occurred a long time back this is not likely. However, you can check with your doctor. Regards.
