    Yellow watery fluid running form my nose.

    Yesterday i was sitting up watching a movie when what i thought to be mucous was dripping from my nose. I went to blow my nose but it felt funny, so i stuffed it with a tissue. When i finished the movie, i removed the tissue to find it half soaked in a water like fluid the color of a yellow highlighter. By then no more was flowing out my nose. This morning, i was doing my daily prayers, bending over for something and it started dripping a few drops of the yellow fluid again, not much just a few drops. What is this? And should i be worried? Thanks

    Without the ability to examine you first-hand, I can only guess, but this liquid could be coming from one of your paranasal sinuses. There are other possibilities as well. I really think that justifies a visit to your medical provider so that you can be properly examined, diagnosed, and treated.
