Runny Nose? Brain Leak, Doctors Finally Determine for Woman

Nebraska woman

In 2013, Jackson was in a vehicle accident, and she hit her face on the dashboard, according to KETV-7 ABC.

In 2015, Jackson's "runny nose" began to worsen.

"We go through the nostrils, through the nose", Barnes said, according to KETV.

She went to doctor after doctor.

After living with severe headaches and a constantly runny nose for years, a woman in Nebraska has finally discovered that the cause wasn't allergies but a hole in her skull.

"She would wake up in the morning after sleeping upright in a chair, and the whole front of her shirt was wet with fluid". The team of doctors conducted a brain surgery just a few weeks ago to cure the issue.

It wasn't until this year that Jackson realized that the actual reason her nose was always runny: she'd a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow.

What is a CSF leak?

"[It was] like a waterfall, either continuously, and then it'd operate to the back of my throat".

Giggs added his support for his ex-manager as football overcame its traditional rivalries to pray for his recovery. His children, including football manager son Darren, and wife Cathy are understood to have been at his bedside.

CSF is a colorless liquid produced and stored in special ventricles in the brain, and also fills the central canal of the spinal cord. Recent research has shown that in mammals, a surge of CSF flushes through the spaces between brain cells, transporting essential molecules and removing toxic metabolic by-products and cell debris. "So it actually provides a cushion for the brain and the spinal cord". One week after the operation, Jackson said she felt wonderful.

According to Barnes, this part of the skull is "very thin, less than a potato chip". The clear fluid, if it were to leak from a nostril or down a person's throat, can have a metallic taste, Live Science reported in 2015.

In Jackson's case, the physicians believe that her auto accident may have caused a small hole that increased in size over time. But since the accident, she's had to stop working, plagued by headaches that felt like 'somebody hit me with a sledgehammer, ' she says. "It may have caused a bit of a thin area there".

What is cerebrospinal fluid leak? If left untreated, brain fluid leaks can lead to serious infections. The woman said she's been free of the runny nose ever since.

"I couldn't sleep. I was like a zombie". "I could tell a great big difference".

Nearly a month after the surgery, Jackson is back home and reports that the mysterious drip has disappeared.

'She probably thought I was insane, because I said "I am not going to leave until you figure out what's wrong with me,"' Kendra recalls. She said she couldn't sleep at night and carried tissues with her everywhere.

Dr Barnes listened to her story, and quickly thought to test the fluid leaking from Kendra's nose to see if it might be from her brain and spine. "So get to the doctor".
