No, not in bottled water. Bottled water is usually pretty clean and there are many tests one on the water. You're fine.

What's up with that naegleria fowleri? Is that some new Google hit?

Anyway, I know for myself and countless other ppl. We all had tap water get into our nose, bottle water too...any kind of water. As far as I know, no one has got sick from it.

I am so scared right now I'm sure I am dying this time but I have accepted it
It's called "still Scottish mountain water"

And I read on a website that bottled water isn't safe for use in a Neti pot or anything
And mountain spring water isn't filtered or anything apparently ?

It'll be fine don't worry about it. Generally, no water "is safe enough" to get all the way up your nasal cavity that's why its good to boil it. But a little bit of water up your nose will do fine.

The water has to shoot up all the way to your olfactory nerves and you would feel a load of pressure and discomfort if the water lands up there.

The water has to literally shoot up your nose. Very forcefully, too. Not just a little bit in your nose.

I don't know how much went up my nose and wouldn't shop bought water be more safe than tap water ? Maybe I have like a 30% chance of having it ?
