Yes: Withdrawal can produce an increase in many secretions including nasal. You can have increased sweating and diarrhea too. This is because of the sympathetic system hyperactivity seen in withdrawal

If you are having trouble withdrawing from opiates an addiction medicine doctor might help. You can find one on the ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) website for your area.
