I get flashes of runny nose

Posted , 2 users are following.

hi! So I just want to see whether others relate and what their doctors told them. I get runny noses that start randomly and are very brief. I get a couple of these flash runny noses everyday. I took an allergy test and everything came back negative. So my doctor said that I have nonallergic rhinitis. But, I just want to see if anyone has that experience and what they were told.

    Sorry this is rather late - have only just seen your post. I haven't been to a doctor but looked symptoms up on internet and reckon I too have non-allergic rhinitis. Sometimes I get a runny nose like you for an hour or so, often I'll start sneezing late in the evening for no apparent reason. I have certainly noticed that if I go straight from one temperature to another it starts me off, but there are so many other triggers listed on the internet, including alcohol consumption for some reason. I find antihistamines help but don't want to take too many of them due to side effects.
