I Have Chronic Sinusitis

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 60 People

    I have suffered from recurrent bouts of

    sinusitis for about 2 years. The cold weather seems to trigger it almost every other week in the winter. The only cure i have found is to pump salt water through my nostrils a few times a day until it gets better. If anyone knows anything else that could be triggering it, or...

    My Sinus Infection Is A Distant Memory

    I was really bad with a chronic sinus infection and had reached desperation because all of the doctors and specialist I had seen could not help me. I took matters in to my own hands and bought a couple of alternatives on-line and through health stores. I must have spent about $20...

    Addendum To My Earlier Post About 'Guaifenesin'

    Today I feel like for the first time I used the

    netipot the way I should use it. What I usually did was to tilt my head sidewise but then the salt water would not reach deep into my sinuses. Today I tilted my head back and used the netipot that way. It was even worse an experience than usual, but I feel like it reached much...
