OK Elizabeth--any problem with indigestion or stuffy sinuses?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

got a badly runny nose. also have ulcers duodenum. the runny nose started about 6 months ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK Elizabeth this could be one of two things--either a problem with gastric acid reflux or a sinus problem as with a sinus infection.

You need to have your doctor check out your sinuses since you might need a course of antibiotics.

If it's a gastric reflux problem and you've yet to be on Zantac or Prilosec, then one of those should take care of it
