Jackson, from Nebraska in the United States, said she initially thought she was getting a cold, then, as her symptoms persisted, doctors suggested it was likely seasonal allergies, putting her among the more than 50 million Americans who struggle with them each year. Nebraska Medicine wrote in a Facebook post that, "Cerebrospinal fluid from her brain was leaking out of her nose". "[It was] like a waterfall, continuously, and then it would run to the back of my throat", Jackson said.

For years, Jackson consulted doctors for her sneezing, coughing and constant nose tickle that had begun after she was in a vehicle accident in 2013.

Doctors initially blamed bad allergies for Kendra Jackson's constant runny nose. In short, Jackson's brain fluid was leaking through her nose at a rate of approximately a half-pint per day.

"Everywhere I went I always had a box of Puffs, always stuffed in my pocket", Jackson said in an interview with KETV. She started sneezing, coughing and felt her nose tickling constantly after she had a auto accident in 2013.

As stated by this Cleveland Clinic, a CSF flow occurs when fluid throughout the brain travels via a hole "through the skull bone", on average as being a outcome of a traumatic accident. But after years of coping with this problem and the headaches associated with it, she turned to the ENT team at Nebraska Medicine.

Doctors told Jackson that she was losing about 8 ounces of fluid a day.

A leak can develop after suffering a traumatic injury to the head, which causes a tear around the membrane of the spinal cord or brain. The condition is not regarded as rare, but patients are often misdiagnosed with common headache disorders, such as migraine or sinusitis. The clear fluid, if it were to leak from a nostril or down a person's throat, can have a metallic taste, Live Science reported in 2015. The risks of CSF leak include possibility of life threatening infections such as meningitis. On occasion the CSF flow will fix itself together with proper remainder, however occaionally operation is needed.

Luckily, she's finally recovering from the leak.

Just one week post-op, Jackson says, she feels wonderful.

This was also Jackson's case as she underwent surgery a few weeks ago. "We use angled cameras, angled instruments to get us up to where we need to go".

Jackson will have a few more checkups to monitor the pressure in her head, but expects to make a full recovery.

"I don't have to carry around the tissue anymore", Jackson told KETV weeks following the operation, "and I'm getting some sleep".
