May 9, 2018 -- A Nebraska woman who sought care for chronic allergiesactually had a rare condition that allowed brain fluid to leak into her nose and mouth.

Kendra Jackson, 52, of Omaha, had coughing, sneezing, a chronic runny nose, and migraine headaches for nearly 2½ years. The symptoms started after she had a serious head injury in a car accident. Her doctors told her the symptoms were probably allergies or a bad cold.

"When it didn't go away, I kept going back and forth to the doctors, and they prescribed every kind of medicine you can think of, and my nose just kept on running," she told CNN.
