I'm pretty good at using my neti pot but I took about 6 weeks off due to travel. I just used it again yesterday and let me tell you it was SO PAINFUL!!! I put just a sprinkle of sea salt too instead of my normal 1/4 tsp. It burned so bad I mean so bad. Made my eyes water and I could not continue doing it. I tried again in the morning with even less salt and it still really burned. I could feel so much pressure in my head too. What could be going on?
I have intense pressure headaches lately a little congestion/allergies but not bad. I do notice I'm swallowing a lot of mucus lately.
