I've been reading this message board (and a few others) for the last
couple of days. It's nice to know that I'm not alone in this, I've been
suffering for 15 years now, and I want to share some ideas.
But first, an experiment that you can do easily at home. If you're
suffering from blocked nasal passages, or congestion, or feel a pressure
on your eyes or just under them (or have itching or burning eyes) - this
should help relieve that annoyance, at least temporarily.
Sit in a comfortable chair, one that has a firm back. Swallow now, since
you wont be swallowing for the next couple of minutes. Place your arms
over your head, with your right arm at the back, and your left arm near
your forehead. Do a slow count to 90. Then, without lowering your arms,
alternate the position of your arms so that your left arm is to the back
of your head. Again wait for a slow count of 90.
You should feel some movement near the top of your neck as the mucus
goes down your throat. This is a hard, thick mucus that has built up in
your sinus cavities, and has been putting pressure on the eyes and other
areas of the face.
If you can, repeat the above (without swallowing) - first lower your
arms to your stomach for thirty seconds, then place them above the head.
Sometimes it takes me half an hour to clear my head of the mucus.
You might be asking yourself what this has to do with fecal odour or
PATM, but I'll explain in a later message.
