    Poxy sinuses. Get some Sinutabs or something into ye, relieves the pressure :)

    I have endless sinus trouble. I don’t know if you use sprays or anything, but Otrivine spray – if you guys have it – works wonders. Of course it’s only temporary relief. I was considering trying a nasel irrigator – apparently they really help long term, and is practiced as part of yoga for a number of symptoms, including asthma.

  4. Bongo,

    Mucinex, plain, no decongestant, and loads of water. Stay away from all de-con sprays.

  5. Tyler,

    Because unsolicited medical advice from the internets is the best way to go, allow me to suggest NeilMed Sinus Rinse. It’s surprisingly effective for being so lo-tech.

    • Rich,

      I second Tyler. NeilMed Sinus Rinse is pretty good! Might be worth a shot, and it’s drug-free to boot (if you ignore salt and bicarb).

  6. Rampage_Rick,

    Have you seen the commercial for Balloon Sinuplasty? Basically they shove a roto-rooter up your nose.

    I’ve always thought one could make a fortune adapting the sucky straw from the dentist’s for home uses, one of which would be to shove up your nose and clear out all those dirty thoughts.

    this should cheer you up – it’s called White Girls by Left Right. This is their official music video (seriously).

  10. Chakolate,

    I used to have tremendous sinus pain, and used sudafed and benedryl by the truckload. Then I read this:

    http://www.menshealth.com/mhlists/diy_health_remedies/Clear_your_stuffed_nose.php

    and I haven’t needed either since then. I do occcasionally use a neti pot, but this trick is all I usually need.

    Seriously, dude, it’s the second-best thing I ever learned on the internet.

    • EV,

      That’s incredible. While I think I’ll need some help shifting it (I have very tricky sinuses), it certainly does something. Just tried it and could feel the sinuses start to clear.

      That’s why I love the interwebs. A tip like that really makes my day. Thanks!

    A little late to the party, but I’m in a greement with Tyler’s comment -”Because unsolicited medical advice from the internets is the best way to go”:
    buy a neti pot and start washing the junk out of your sinuses. luke warm salt water does wonders
