Hi there. I’m new to this forum but not health anxiety. So yesterday I used a neti pot with tap water. I honestly didn’t know you shouldn’t do this until mu friend said YOU CANNOT DO THAT! Then I started googling now I’m scared to death and haven’t slept more than two hours thinking I’m going to get a brain eating amoeba and die. Any advice? Im going to call and get into my dr this AM. TIA

Hi Mellib welcome to the forum :welcome:

Did you use the water straight from the tap or did you boil it first?

Don't worry. I actually did the same thing once and I was fine. There's a very little chance you'll get sick but you should check with your Doctor just in case. Just listen to your Doctor and you will be OK.
