Neti Pot Scared

I have sinus problems and this morning I did a neti pot flush with " Natural spring, ozonated Safeway water" . I cannot remember if i fully boiled the water after, but it was steaming a bit for sure before i turned it off. Now i have some back neck pain and a minor headache. I am scared that i have gotten Naegleria fowleri meningitis.  I live in Canada.

Hi,
How are you? Do you still experience the symptoms that you mentioned? While primary amebic (amoebic) meningoencephalitis (PAM) caused by the ameba (amoeba) of N fowleri is rare, initial symptoms  Initial symptoms of  start 1 to 7 days after infection and rapidly progresses until the 12th day. If it persists, have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
