I used fluticasone nasal spray caused me not to smell nose dry doc said nostrils swollen tried saltwater nose feels heavy air feels obstructed?

It is probably okay: An air embolism would not probably result from what you did, and to put it another way when someone uses a CPAP or BiPAP machine they are subjecting their respiratory system to elevated pressures and they do just fine. If you notice any persistent effects you could get them checked out at an emergency room or urgent care clinic although I highly doubt that would be necessary. Stay safe! ...Read more
