Yes I do get nose waters.It.s like my nose is crying it,s just like tears.when I eat,when I,m doing housework if I,m on the move it,s running .been like along while,Doctors Don,t seem concerned.it can be a nuisance if I can,t find tissue quick.


It's known as gustatory rhinorrhea - and I get it pretty much every time that I eat or drink (have done for a long time). Some people only experience it if they eat something spicy but my nose runs irrespective. It's known as gustatory rhinitis if it only happens with some foods. It's very common and there can be several underlying reasons.

For some people, the abnormal secretions begin after injury from an infection, a surgical operation, or cranial trauma that affects nerves that control the responses.

I always have the charming habit of gustatory sweating - I'm a very picturesque dinner companion. :) In my case, I think it's several head injuries that I've had.

Exercise-induced rhinorrhea is very common (>60% of people in some groups of those who exercise, irrespective of allergy history) as is exertion-induced rhinorrhea.

Would it also not be in relation to your temperature rising? As it would do on eating and exercising.?
