Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Although it is often claimed to be safer than conventional cigarettes, e-cigarettes (vapes) are actually still in doubt about their safety, especially if they contain nicotine. Many studies show that nicotine consumption increases the production of catecholamines, chemicals that increase heart rate and blood pressure. This effect also causes an increased risk of atherosclerosis in its users. This atherosclerotic plaque deposition can be one of the triggering factors for not smooth blood flow, which can lead to complaints such as cramps and tingling.
In addition, nicotine consumption can also trigger an increase in stomach acid in sensitive people. This is what is likely to cause you to feel nauseous and shiver. In addition, with exposure to cold environmental conditions, the diameter of the blood vessels can become narrower, and the complaints will get worse.
In addition to the effects of nicotine consumption, the cramps, nausea, and chills you experience can also be influenced by other causes, namely gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus), viral or bacterial infections, premenstrual syndrome, diabetes, urinary tract infections, impaired kidney function, liver, heart, thyroid gland, psychosomatic disorders, drug abuse, and so on.
Need to clarify, when was the last time you did a series of checks above? And, since when do you feel your various complaints now?
You should take the time in between your busy schedules to check directly with the doctor so that a thorough examination is carried out regarding the complaints you are experiencing. If necessary, the doctor will recommend laboratory tests, thyroid function fingerprints, ultrasound, x-rays, heart records, and so on according to the suspicion of the disease.
In the meantime, you should stop smoking, even e-cigarettes. Live a healthy lifestyle, starting from eating regularly, getting enough sleep, managing stress well, exercising diligently, and staying away from alcohol and drugs. If your hands and fingers feel cramped or stiff, apply warm compresses. And if nausea comes back, you can take antacid drugs 30 minutes before eating to reduce nausea.
Hope it helps ya..
