While using the NeilMed solution - one nostril flowed as it should. When I shifted to the other nostril - only a few drops came out and I began to fill pressure around my eye and ear. I stopped immediately. Does this indicate a blockage or a sinus infection? Should I stop using it? Thank you.
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.
