I had the flu or bronchitis and now developed serious sinus infection?

Hello I am a 45 year old female with no disease and I am on no medication and very healthy. Last month I had the flu or bronchitis badly, the head pain was unbearable, it tooks a couple of weeks to get over and I still have headaches a little bit. My entire life I have always had sinus infections and my nose is always blocked. Three days ago I used a netti pot and I did it with my own salt and it burned. That night my vision was off and now for the past two days I have had double vision badly and today a headache- i have no health insurance and I literally have no money- at all- nothing for a dr…is this from the netti pot did I gives my self a sinus infection.I cannot go to the ER and be in debt thousands to find out its a sinus infection thank you.

netti pot does cause sinusitis like symptoms , you should use Nasal corticosteroids to reverse the effect
Good Luck

sinus infection seems to be caused by netti pod.
use mucolyte tablets,antibiotics for 7 days with steam inhalation.
Nasal drops will help.
Nasal endoscopy can be done to rule out blocked mucus plugs.

In my opinion you have a sinus infection..and using your own salt for the netti pot caused severe burning and did not clear the sinus..
I recommend a broad spectrum antibiotic course.
Then a nasal decongestant like otrivin and use physiomer solution or its substitutes to clear the sinusitis.
Vapour baths can help also.
