..this probably isnt connected but started a year ago, clear, no odour, "strings" of mucous pulled from right nostril, nothing form left.. Iput this post up before with photos and took down as kind of gross to look at but went on and on about 15 times a day every day then recently stopped and when i blow with paper hanky or nothing its still in long five inch or so strings and sometimes thin as a fishing line and sometimes thicker… no fever, nothing but also have tinnitus and ear pressure… is this just an odd occurrent or something to check out bearing in mind we have two ents who are busy and a year wait. no blood, nothing, just constant blowing out these long thin lines of mucous, even sneezing them out, one side, ….. what tube goes from back of nose to ??? that is about 4 to 5 inches long to produce these "strings" curious.

At the time your symptoms began did you have a head injury… even just a little bump that you shrugged off??

Please know I have no medical training whatsoever. This is from my own experiences and my research.. which it has been a long time since I have I done research. Today my time is limited because of grandchildren. .. so some more research on your own needed.

Other than allergies or your nasal anatomy is off.. like a deviated septum… the only other reason I can think of for your problem is a brain leak. More info here https://www.cedars-sinai.org/health-library/diseases-and-conditions/c/cerebrospinal-fluid-leak.html .

If allergies or environmental irritation from what you breathe in then saline nasal rinses should help along with allergy medication. Instead of the nasal rinse or neti pot that you have to mix I have been using Arm & Hammer Simply Saline nasal mist. You can mist it in or use it like a nasal rinse. I used it this morning .. along with my nasal antihistamine spray. .. and the nasal drip stopped. I will do the same this evening. If I get drippy or stuffy between times I use the saline spray. It washes the irritants out and moistens the nasal passages. a lot of times our nasal passages are dry and the mucus … aka snot.. thickens and gets stringy. Sometimes only one side.. for some odd reason. Many sites will tell you how snot forms… just put in your web browsers search engine “ where does snot come from” .. you will even find videos.
