Headaches Accompanied By Sweat And Trembling When Using E-cigarettes?
Hello doctor …? Why do I always have a headache and sweat when I feel smoking and feel unwell and my body feels shaking …?
Hello Hany, Thank you for the question.
Electric cigarette (for example vape) is a type of cigarette that is claimed to be healthier or safer than tobacco cigarettes. However, this assumption still needs further research evidence. Users of e-cigarettes must still be careful of the side effects of these e-cigarettes. Just like tobacco cigarettes, e-cigarettes also contain nicotine. In addition to nicotine, e-cigarettes also have other harmful ingredients that have adverse effects on health. Some of the hazardous contents in e-cigarettes are formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, propylene glycol, glycerine, nitrosamine, cadmium, nickel, lead, and other organic components that are easily damaged at room temperature.
Your headache complaint is caused by the nicotine content that is too high. In addition to nicotine, the content of propylene glycol can also cause headaches because of its effects causing dehydration in the body. Other health effects that can arise are health problems in the mouth, throat, respiratory tract, lungs, and nervous system.
If you continue to experience these symptoms, the best step is to stop using e-cigarettes. If it still feels difficult, you can choose a lower nicotine content. Make sure you also consume enough water to prevent dehydration. You can take pain medications such as paracetamol if the headaches are very annoying.
I hope this helps.
