I'm also using Neil Med sinus wash and Xlear sinus spray. They provide temporary relief and it's not getting worse, but I am still not getting better! My nose itself is not congested, but there seems to be a post nasal drip that causes me to cough and have a hoarse voice. It provokes a lot of stupid comments from people, but it's convenient because I really don't like getting out these days and it's a good excuse. I think this is here to stay for a while. I am also using this tea tea oil ointment because I love the smell, though I'm a little iffy about using it in pregnancy.
Firespirit, I didn't mean to second guess you. How are you feeling this morning? Hope everyone feels better soon.
No worries, no offense taken!!
I'm feeling really crummy unfortunately. Was up most of the night with sever pain again and actually resorted to taking a sudefed (which is NOT something I would normally take during pregnancy) but nothing else I was doing was having any effect and I was just so tired and sore that I was desperate. It seemed to let me get some sleep (thank goodness!) and when I woke up the pain had subsided but now I can't hear at all out of my right ear and it feels like it's full of cotton. So, I'm on my way back to urgent care to see if there is anything they can do.
What a bummer that so many of us are feeling so icky. Here's hoping it clears up for everyone soon!!
