I have just used neilmed sinus rinse for the first time for chronic sinus headache and post nasal drip. I followed the instructions exactly but couldnt get any water to come out of the opposite nostril on either side. I used very little water but since using the product I have got a painful sinsus headache above my left eye. Any suggestions?

It could be possible that you have a blocked nasal passage. You might try using a decongestant nasal spray about 15 minutes before performing the sinus rinse to open up the passage and see if this helps. If you are tilting your head too far back or forward, this could cause the solution to drain into your ear or eye. Please refer to the brochure or website for proper head position. Also, please make sure you blow your nose gently after rinsing to avoid putting pressure on your eardrums.
