English term or phrase: running sinuses
No one notices if a person breathes every three seconds
instead of every five, unless perhaps the breathing is
noisy. However, your body is aware of it, because
breathing like this can be almost relentless. It gradually
lowers the amount of carbon dioxide found in the lungs
and the bloodstream, setting off any of the following
symptoms:
• Respiratory system: Shortness of breath, chest tightness,
extra-sensitive airways, excessive production of
mucus, sneezing, long-term blocked or running sinuses,
coughing, excessive yawning and sighing.

French translation:écoulement des sinus
Explanation:
This happens mostly when you bang your head real hard if you get into an accident, but it can happen from being sick. Most people don't realize their sinuses are running because it feels like a runny nose - unless their sinuses start popping, in which case they start to wonder. Even so, it is so much like a runny nose that most of the time, it goes unnoticed.
