My name is Kimberly, I am 40 years old. About 7 years ago I was treated with Nasonex in conjunction with a cpap machine for my sleep apnea. After that every time I bent over water would pour out of one side of nose. At first I thought it was blood, but it was the exact consitency of water. I stooped using the nasonex and the cpap ueats ago.
This has happened off and on for years.About 6 months ago I noticed the drip was back, as well as occasional water out of my ears. 12 weeks ago I started having bouts of vertigo.
The water is almost always the same,it is always water,It is always in the right nostril, it always happens right when I sit up and tilt my head after a nights sleep. If it does not happen immediately then,then the first time I bend over in the day it pours. Then usually not again in the day unless I nap. It taste mostly like tears. I can't tell if it is a metallic taste. I tried doing the hankie test, I don't think it stiffens much when it dries. My hubby says it Is stiff .I have occasional headaches, tinnitus,and my ears pop.
When I brought up a csf leak the doctor brushed it off. He says the headaches are migraines, says it is sinuses. I am not sure what to do,any advice is appreciated.
