    In the course of my readings I have not found a runny nose to be associated as such with MND. Possibly your immune system is affected and you get colds easily. All that said I'm not an expert of any sort.

    I have Bulbar MND and have had a problem with runny nose for some time. It seemed to start before I started noticing first syptoms which for me were with my speech. I wish I'd bought shares in Kleenex to be honest it was that much of a problem. I recently put in an air purifier and ioniser and things have improved a lot for me.

    When you say meal times are a problem could the food be hot and the steam be loosening the mucus causing your nose to run?

    Hello Michael,

    I don't think its very common, because I have mentioned it to a few Docs since Jims diagnosis. However, like you my Jim suffers from a runny nose and especially at meal times. This has been happening for a few months now. He also suffers with respiratory problems and yes I feel the runny nose symptoms are all related to MND, but that is only my opinion. MND present in various ways, my husband has always had a weakness in his chest and the MND seems to be homing in on those muscles. Take Care Spring x

    I have Bulbar onset and have problems with my nose running quite a lot. There is no way of knowing when it happens.
    I have just started using Rinatec nasal spray which was prescribed for me by my speech therapist.

    I have bulbar onset too, and I too have a runny nose! I also grunt a lot and wondered if others have this problem - seems to be worse in the evenings and at night when I am tired and it wakes me up. It feels as though my throat is restricting the flow of air - anyone else have this problem. I'm seeing the respiratory team soon so hope they will come up with something. Thanks AnnE

    Yes I grunt as well Annie, that and many other funny noises, you should hear me laugh! My nose often runs when I get up, I put that down to it being blocked overnight, the trouble is I cannot blow it or spit out saliva. I am waiting for suction machine to be delivered..

    I suffer a very runny nose when I first get up in the morning.

    If I go and lie down on the bed for an hour it dries up and doesn't seem to bother me until bedtime. When I go to bed for the night, as long as I breathe through my nose it dries up quickly.

    I'm taking 2 sprays of Avamys morning and evening and 2 Hyoscine morning, noon and night. I was diagnosed with MND at the end of August but my runny nose started in April.
