A woman in Arizona spent months trying to get her runny nose cleared up. In desperation, she goes to an immediate care center where she is told it is not her allergies but her brain fluid is leaking. From Yahoo.com News, "An Arizona woman survived a close brush with death after doctors discovered what was previously believed to be a runny nose brought on by allergies was actually fluid leaking from her brain."It wasn't even dripping, it was pouring out of my nose," Aragon told ABC News. "If I looked down or bent over, it would literally pore out of the left side of my nose. I had no control at all."For four months, doctors told 35-year-old Aundrea Aragon was simply suffering from severe allergies. But after literally walking around with tissue stuffed up her nose, Aragon eventually went to an urgent care facility." MORE
I know I will never again be able to have a runny nose and not think of this story. What about you?
