Every now and then, immediately following a stressful day, my nose begins to drip water like a tap, my nose is irritated and I sneeze constantly. It happens like clockwork. It also happens if I have an alcohol bender (rarely).. or too much Crossfit (occasionally).
Pre-paleo it occurred much more frequently and was often followed by tonsillitis or strep throat and I'd be out of action for a week. These days it's just annoying for a day.
In the past I tried everything from allergy meds to all the home remedies without luck. Cold and Flu medication provided some relief and fish oil seems to help.. but the only permanent fix I've found is going to sleep. I can sleep for a few hours, wake up and it's like it never happened.
So I'm wondering, might there be anything I can take for a 'quick fix'? It seems to me high cortisol might be the cause? I've been quite strict with Paleo for over a year, supplement Natural Calm, Vit D, k2, and sometimes fish oil.
Any help is much appreciated!
