 are you dying with these symptoms? NO! I think you will be fine I get water up my nose all the time and I've never gotten sick from it or died from it, I think you are just fine! :yes:

Well in any case, would it be alright if I make one reply and update it for each day until it's over (Don't reply until after the 7th day, so I can modify the reply)?

Starting to have sharp pains in the right side of my forehead that last for only a couple of seconds and don't come back until at least 2 hours. They're sort of near my brow.

My friend, you are okay. I've googled all there is to google about this thing (I used to fear it too - many of us have). I won't even get into why you're okay, I'm not going to enable this fear. If I give reasons why you're okay, you'll think about those reasons and temporarily feel good about it, and then your anxiety will take hold again and you'll counter with reasons why you might NOT be okay.

Don't give this irrational fear another second of your life. Just drop it, move on.
There is no reason for concern here...

I 2nd what AP151 said.

Is it a scary thing? Yes. Is it rare? YES. You would be the first reported case in 2014, thats how rare it is. People get water up their nose all the time. Millions of people, every day. Not a single reported case yet this year.

I let myself have a completely irrational panic attack over this stupid thing a couple days ago and have paid the price. It's not worth it.

You're fine.

I'm still here, got a bit of nose pain, stuffiness, tightness, minor loss of smell (I can still smell soaps), but my headaches have been fading to some degree.

Damnit!

My neck stiffened when I was "mass debating", I am having tightness above my jaws, I have been forgetting things since last Wednesday (Immediate things, I still have long term memory), yet I don't have a fever and I have never vomited in the past week!

I don't know if I should call 911 or not.

Maybe I should start saying my goodbyes again... Then again, they won't believe me. :traurig001:

Don't call 911. You're alright. I'm sure that your neck stiffened when you were doing your thing because sometimes your whole body stiffens when you orgasm. The neck stiffness N. Fowleri would cause is the kind where you wouldn't be able to touch your chin to your chest. And your fever would be well over 104 degrees. Your headache would be so bad that medicine wouldn't take it away and it would cause you to vomit. This is all caused by anxiety. Please don't call 911. I'm trying to save you from the embarrassment that would come later after the doctors confirm what were all telling you...that you're fine.

My latest readings are 97.7 and 98.2.

So far, so good.

This "round" (For the lack of a better term) started since 5/17/2013. So it has been slightly more than a week.

Overall symptoms, painful headaches that go away with rest but spring up at night for some time (Though xanax seems to keep them down), loss of appetite, nasal tightness, short term memory loss (Forgetting certain things).

No fevers, no vomiting, no actual stiff neck so far, no hallucinations.
