In the last 6 months, I’ve also needed to clear my nose in the middle of the night, so that I can breathe normally. I also feel ticklish in my nose and then need to sneeze, which leads to more running nose. I’ve tested negative for any allergies, there are no polyps, the inside nasal bridge structure is straight and the mucous is colorless/transparent. Based on the above, would you prescribe Natrum Mur 6X.
