Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 64 People

    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...

    Just got it for the first time.

    Hell, it's terrible!! Worst bit is not being able to sleep and concentrate because of the gnawing pain in your cheek and jaws. Had it for a week and done nothing aside from paracetamol and Sudafed (although the best temporary reprieve is a simples Olbas inhaler. This was because...

    I have suffered from recurrent bouts of
