Trigger - snorting water
I am fully panicking ! Can anyone please calm me . I’m in tears ,
I’ve never been so immediately scared this bad .
I have had a mild sinus infection , blocked nose for a week or two . I have looked up lots of websites for help and a fair few suggested saline sprays or snorting warm water in shower to break down mucus . I have been doing this almost daily in the shower and I’ve come across a website that states snorting water in a massive no no due to naegleria Fowleri being found in tap water and fresh water pools , swimming’s lakes etc which is almost always fatal. Says symptom will present 1-15 days and only 4 people in world are known to survive . I have never ever known this and my kids often get our spa water in their nose
But at least with that it’s disinfected with chemical .
I’m Actually so scared. Why isnt this more commonly known . Is that it ? I just wait to see
If I die ..
I know that sounds over dramatic but I am
Sooooo scared. i rang a nurse and they said its fatal but they cant advise if i will or wont catch it .
, I have two kids . I’m crying . I had no idea snorting water was not safe, i was just trying to rinse with warm water 😞
