    Ive had the perssure in my head,face area for a year now. i thought it had to do with my tmj but found out it was my sinuses. i started using the neti pot a week ago and instaly the pressure was gone but then my head and jaw were so senstive i couldnt move my mouth for 3 days i dont know if its the tissues, blood or something but whenever i touch i get little muscles spasms and little shocks throughout my body but then after 4 days i was able to talk a little but then i yawned and it had to to be the littlest yawn i ever did and now everything came back what should i do? thank you

    Have you seen a doctor for this? Clearly something is going on with your sinuses. The Neti pot is generally considered a pretty mild nasal irrigator since it just uses saline solution. I couldn't find any evidence that it caused many side effects but then again, sometimes people respond very differently to therapies.

     

    For me, if it didn't clear up soon, I would try and find a doctor who is experienced in sinus infections and TMJ if you can find such a person. There may be some strange dynamic between the two going on. 

     

    Good luck!
