Clear fluid leaking from nose
For the last 1 yr or so, clear fluid leaks uncontrollably from my nose whenever i bend deep. 5-6 drops each time. ENT suggested fluid biochemistry for suspected CSF leak, but can't collect enough fluid. Is the suspicion right and how to diagnose. Any risks ? No persistent cold etc.. what to do

Suspicion is absolutely right. Does your handkerchief gets hard when it drys after cleaning your nose? Is the fluid salty to taste? If these two are present then the chance of CSF also raises. Please get it investigated. Nothing to worry as it is curable!
