    Why does my nose run whenever I'm done eating??

    I swear it's the weirdest thing...I actually get made fun of for it by my friends. But yeah, whenever I'm full/done eating, my nose starts to run just a little bit and I get the sniffles. What's up with that?

    Are you eating spicy food?

    It could possibly also be a reaction to dairy?

    I have that reaction too, sometimes. Usually with hot(and I mean just out of the oven hot, not spicy) food. Especially soup...Tissue and spoon, thats me
    I have a stuffed nose most of the time, so I figure its because I don't breath while I eat? I dunno... lol
    Calm the f**k down.

    It's any food, whether warm/cold spicy/mild whatever. I had scrambled eggs with salsa and avocado for breakfast, along with some coconut milk, and it happened. Just a second ago I had some 90% dark chocolate and it happened too. Perhaps it is just a mystery lol

    Clymb, we must be related. It has definitely not gone away as I've switched to Primal, and it has nothing to do with what I eat (wings? runny nose. Fried egg? runny nose. steak? runny nose.)

    I hope someone can tell you (us) what this malady is all about!

    That's weird, I just read about this happening for the first time this week in the paper in a People's Pharmacy column and then I see your post on it, same week.

    Interesting--I started looking up some more "gustatory rhinitis" articles after reading this. Mostly they say it is related to hot and spicy foods though, and is a non-allergy issue. I guess they don't really know why it happens...weird. I want to get to the bottom of this mystery! lol

    I have it too. I figured it was just me. Glad I'm not the only one. It's not really bad, just sort of annoying sometimes.

    Sounds plausible to me.

    I get this fairly often, although it only runs a tiny bit, not like streams of snot coming out of my nose. Usually only happens with warm food, but I just grab a tissue and keep eating.
