I’ve had a problem with my nose being extra runny for a long time. It’s very annoying. I’m not sick, I know that. And I’ve noticed that it seems to get worse at some times than at others.
Today while randomly following links, this article caught my attention: Perpetual Sniffles.
My joy and delight! That has to be what I have. I have vasomotor rhinitis. If there’s not a cure, at least there’s a name. Going into a house with the air conditioner on will do it. Eating does it, especially spicy food. Stress increases it. I really hate it when my nose starts to run at the most inopportune moments, but it does. I always have to have a tissue with me just to dab at the corner of my nose.
Yup, it’s annoying. But at least it’s a named annoyance.
