i am just getting over a viral sinus infection (so it couldn't be treated with antibiotics) and it was horrible. i don't remember ever feeling so awful before. my head hurt, my face hurt, my teeth hurt, i couldn't sleep, i couldn't eat...i just wanted to curl up and cry (which i may have done.) i felt really really yucky. i saw my mom on friday night, just when i was just beginning to feel pretty awful, and she suggested i try a neti pot. i brushed her suggestion off, telling her that neti pots freaked me out and i would never use one. why would you willingly pour water into your nose? yikes! i went home that night, took some tylenol, and tried, unsuccessfully, to sleep. i suffered pretty much all weekend, popping tylenol and sudafed, drinking hot tea, taking steamy showers and baths. nothing really helped and i was miserable. finally, on monday, a nurse recommended that i try a neti pot...and so i did. and i literally felt better almost immediately. it was amazing! i was a convert. i immediately texted my mom and told her that i had done the neti pot and i should have listened to her. perhaps i wouldn't have had to suffer all weekend? so, i have learned my lesson. mother knows best and i should always listen to her. it only took me thirty-three years to learn. sorry about that, mom! i love you!
have you ever used a neti pot???
