I have read about that and I believe it. It explains a lot of the problems that I have had all these years. I have so much pressure in my nose and can't blow it plus have pressure in my eustacian tubes. I have had to have a tube placed in my right ear 4 times since I was 55 years old. I can also see how it can swell and cause so much pressure and also drain. I have had some infections that my ENT could not put a name to but he knew I needed antibiotic. Bet there will be a lot of new diagnoses for some people. meirish

This is very interesting.   Like Irish (and maybe most people here?) I have a problem with pressure in my nose, and it's terribly dry.  Thank you for posting this.
Dry eyes (MGD), nose, mouth, labyrinthitis, rashes, dry skin (occasional eczeme), mouth ulcers, constant but fluctuating fatigue.  Blood tests and Schirmers negative,no Sjogrens dx yet.   Flax oil, multivitamins,  saline nasal spray, Hylo forte, Lacrilube, organic castor oil for eyes, moisturisers.

That might be a reason that hot and spicy foods trigger a runny nose for some!

Very interesting, I guess that there may always be something new under the sun afterall! Never know what research will turn up next, and the biggest discoveries are very often accidents.
