Multiple Sclerosis & Nasal Problems

Had MS since 1991. Well managed by neurologist and copaxone. Before then and now I have regular runny nose. Blow my nose frequently but even blowing doesn't solve running. Sometimes I'm woken up at night with running. I simply don't get a clear clean nose. Mucus is clear. I don't think sinuses are pressured. I don't know if I have allergies. No one in family is allergic to anything. Haven't told doctor about symptoms because it seems silly & I should be able to handle. What's going on & is there anything safe to help me? Thanks guys.

It's been my experience that folks with MS automaticly blame the MS for whatever ailment arises. This is totaly understandable, considering the crazy things MS can cause. That said, Let me tell you that lately there are many, many people, without MS, experiencing the very same drippy nose as you have. It even causes a night time cough due to the post nasal drip tickling the throat. The fact that it's clear eases the worry of chronic infection. Perhaps it's polution, lack of rest, etc. What to do: Healthy mix of rest activity, avoid dairy, diffuse THERAPEUTIC essential oils to keep inside environment clean, sleep with head slightly elevated.
