The pressure in my head has been released. Thanks to some great washing out of the sinuses, I'm happy to report that I'm up and moving around again.

The nurse said that I could take Sudafed and Benedryl. I got the saline rinse (I couldn't find the NeilMed), and commenced to trying to flush out my head.

Can I just say that as unpleasant as it is to shoot salt water up your nose, the resulting benefits have been delightful? Ahhhhhh.

Have you tried it? Sounds creepy but I hear it works wonders! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Liz DATE:Wednesday, May 30, 2007 at 10:53:00 AM EDT I used to mix salt and warm water in a plastic cup and take it into the bathroom at work. Snorting saline water at work, classy.
I had the *worst* congestion during my pregnancy. And forget about it with a cold.
Glad you have some relief! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Tracy DATE:Wednesday, May 30, 2007 at 11:18:00 AM EDT I'm glad you feel better! ----- --------
