Hi there. I have been having a headache around my left temporal lobe and behind my left eye for about 3 days or so now and sometimes across my forehead. Its a dull annoying ache usually in the morning and feels better in the evening. I'm usually an allergy sufferer and have sinus issues, especially this time of year in Texas. Even did the balloon sinuplasty last year. I'm about 19 weeks pregnant as well. The only thing I can think of is the change of weather or the Neti-Pot I used about 3 nights ago. I typically clean it out with hot/warm tap water and a little handsoap, and let it air dry. When I use it to irrigate my sinuses, I mix the premade solution with some of the bottled water I have (either Dasani or Evian spring water) and I microwave it for about 30-40 seconds until it is warm. I didn't know if the Neti Pot would have caused this. I was just a little freaked out because I had heard of the random case of infection with that a couple of years ago--I realize this was rare. Also cant remember if I washed my Neti Pot out with the soap last week or not, but did with warm tap water. I didn't know if it was anything to be alarmed about. Any explanation would be great. I was just a little concerned and didn't know if I was overacting. Thank you.View Thread
