Runny nose caused by stroke?

11/21/2006

Question:

My mother had a hem. stroke a year ago last March and ever since then, she has had a runny nose. What is causing this? she is in misery.

Answer:

I am not aware of any connection between a runny nose and having had a hemorrhagic stroke in the past. 

I suggest that she see her local physician and make sure that there is not some underlying cause for the persistant runny nose, such as a sinus infection.
