Allergy season is here in the worst way and I recently was hit hard enough that I had to stay out of work for a day to recuperate. I've been miserable for four days and a visit to the doctor offered the same remedies as it always does: antiallergins, steroids to lower swelling and a promise of antibiotics when the inevitable sinus infection comes. I'm making an appointment to get an allergist and I will take the battery of medicines but it's time for something new.... something... neti...
Some background: I have severe pollen and dustmite allergies and have had them ever since I was a small child. Allergy season knocks me out pretty much every year. Nothing ever completely works and I'm ready to do just about anything to save myself now... including pouring salty water into my skull.
Spurred on by discussion in this ILX thread, I decided to buy a neti pot. I'll be using it for the first time tonight and am committed to trying it at least once a day for the next two weeks. I'll chronicle the experiment here.
Monkeys with Neti practice? Curious Neti Monkeys? Folks who want to laugh as I jam this in my nostril?
Get on board for neti fun!
