don't know if this could be related to UC... it doesn't really seem like it to me but i guess you never know...

anyway, only recently i have been having a strange dripping nose. only about 3 or 4 drops out of one nostril (not sure if it's the same one every time), very watery, not mucous. i'm not sneezing, not sick. it can happen at home, or out, or in air conditioned places. it's happening once or twice a day.
no other cold-like or allergy-like symptoms.
it's very odd and very new. possibly increasing in frequency (a couple of weeks ago it was not happening every day).

UC is currently very predictable, always in the bathroom a few times in the morning and then nothing the rest of the day. not a very pleasant consistency but no blood, no pain, no mucous.

anyone else have anything like this??

I have allergy, especially at this time of year.  I use a nose pot with saline and inhaled steam with essential oils to help.

love to all

nitroquick, proventol, plavix 75 mg, protonix 40 mg x 2, asacal 400mg x 9

I think I read somewhere that asacol can cause nasal drip, although it might have azathioprine.

Asacol 4 tabs 2x daily
Forvia once a day
Probiotic twice daily
Methotrexate 3 pills once a week
Actonel once a week
Calcium supp.
Omega-3 once daily
