Runny nose after eating

on 11/19/07 1:54 am - Lancaster, PA
I am just wondering if anyone has this. Almost always while or after I am eating I get a runny nose. I am 13 mos out and it has been pretty consistent. ANyone know why?

YES!  I have found that when I'm full, my nose starts to run.  I don't know if it is my body's way of just telling me to stop eating or what, but it works.   Incidentally, my husband and sister, who have NOT had weight loss surgery, have noticed the same thing happens to them.  I do not know the physiology behind it, though.  Hopefully someone else will.

That's your cue to stop eating.  I sneeze or get hiccups, if I get to that point.  Don't take another bite when that happens. Don't know why, but it happens to a lot of us. Holly Berry

Yep, it means STOP EATING I get it along with three hiccups when I'm full.  If I keep pushing, I'll be miserable.

I'll be 4 months out next month and the same thing happens to me.  I believe someone posted the same thing last friday and had some "medical" explaination to it.

I'm another "runny noser" and have been since right after the surgery.    It has to do with the vagus nerve. "Many Post-ops claim to have their nose start running when they take "that last bite" just before feeling too full. Some experience sneezing or hiccups if they eat a bite too much. Both are actions inextricably bound to Vagus nerve signals. Many claim to get a "runny nose" with one bite too much food for their pouch, and hiccups from eating too fast." I'm two years out and it still happens. Sally

I have same problem by sneezing after the meal. I had that happening so often! My friends laughed at me for sneezing! I could not help it. Thank you for this forum and mean a lot to my health and yours too! I lost over 100 since 4 months.
