This is one of the few times I have been really sick that I have tried almost every single suggestion thrown my way because I was desperate, folks.
Some things worked, some things did not.
If you find yourself in the midst of sinus congestion hell and looking for relief, any type of relief, try it.
Neti Pots (or the like)
These little watering pots for your nose will never not gross me out. They don't work for me because I have a deviated septum, but if you don't have a broken nose, try it out. Apparently the people love them, even if flushing out snot is as gross as it sounds.
Ah, I wanted this to work so bad, but again, with a deviated septum, it really wasn't doing anything other than making my nose feel like I was spraying needles into my sinus cavity. Check out their website before heading off to the store, you might be able to save $1 off.
Cool Eye Mask
This has to be one of my best suggestions from a dear friend on Twitter. Take one of those gel eye masks and place it in the refrigerator (or freezer) and place it on your face. Straight from the freezer was way too cold for my face, but out of the refrigerator was just right. I liked to use a wash cloth with cool water to kind of surround it. As much as I would have loved to replace the eye mask as soon as the gel became room temp, it made my face very raw, so its probably best to just give your face a rest for awhile in between uses. However, this was hands down the best thing that helped, even if it didn't really do anything to the pressure.
Whatchu look'n at Willis?
