A Nebraska woman spent years fighting what she assumed to be allergies. However, she recently learned her runny nose was, in reality, a leak of brain fluid, KETV in Omaha reported.
The woman said she went to countless doctors over the years who just attributed her runny nose and cough to allergies. It wasn't until she visited an ear, nose, and throat specialist that she learned the real problem.
According to the ENT, the woman was losing roughly half-a-pint of brain fluid a day.
The doctor was able to perform a small surgery up the woman's nose to block the leak. The woman said she's been free of the runny nose ever since.
It isn't known for certain what caused the leak, however, the woman reported being in a car crash a few years before the leak first started.
