i think what i did was put vicks underneath my nose than stood over boiling water and then i was able to blow all the shit out of my nose. not sure if that makes sense, but i am pretty sure it worked for me when i had mono at an early age
good luck i lost 20lbs and was skinny to start with
duude, i know some things that might work.. they worked for me
i1.) if you dont know what a "Neti Pot" is google it and find somewhere were you can get it. it's like tea kettle you pour into your nose and the water ( with other stuff ) pours out the other side. and it gets rid of everything inside you nose. my mom just got me a neti pot becasue i am currenty sick, works wonders. i can breathe clearly through my nose right now.
2.) get vick's cold rub or what ever its called and rub it on your neck and under your nsoe helps you breathe. pretty much the best.
3.) i was thinking of somthing but then i forgot... hmmm. ill post if i remember.
