lerc, this is a caregiver support group. You may be looking for a clinical group. We occasionally have professionals come on with answers, but mostly it is caregivers talking with each other.

Also.......my sister used to have runny nose but more slight 2-3 years before she passed away from CHF at age 46
I'm in 60's and notice mine even runs at odd times.
That reminded my husband and I of getting a runny nose when eating soup. Not bad for us---just searching for way to help my Dad (above note) when he can't help himself.

When visiting my Dad at care center, I found him sitting with 3-inch nasal drainage. Not sure he was aware or if he couldnt get a kleenex which staff had handy. I constantly wiped his nose for him.
What can anyone do for folks in this situation?

My Alz mom has had a constant runny nose, especially after eating, for many years. It's due to her high blood pressure medication.

My husband has advanced Parkinson's. After lunch almost daily his nose runs like a faucet. After about a half an hour he vomits up phlegm. Is this a common symptom of advanced Parkinson's?

Yes my Mom had that before her stroke. We had all pretty cloth hankerchiefs for her and she loved them. The Dr said its normal , not to worry.
