Sick from vaping? Need advice!
Hi all.  I need some input and advice.  I started to vape for the first time on Wednesday
evening. I bought the penguin se and used kai's virgin vapor 100%vg.  On Friday evening, I took a large hit. It tore up my throat and lungs. I coughed extremely
heavily.  I then went to bed but coughed  off on and in night. When I woke up Sat morning, my lungs were still killing me. On saturday i coughed
heavily all day. It was bad.  Then i spiked  a 101 fever sat night.  Actually had to use an inhaler I got in the winter and popped an antibiotic.  Has anyone heard of this reaction 
reaction from a newbie? Did I do something wrong?  Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

Were you a smoker before you started vaping?

RE: Sick from vaping? Need advice!
I had similar sideffects when I first started vaping ... Not that coughing through the whole night and stuff ... But my body temperature was way to high ... I didn't know too what it is .. But now after vaping for nearly 3 years I tell you something that might have happened: A) To high nicotine dose ("overdose"!) or B) Allergic reaction to either some Flavour or the VG!

Try to change your Nicotine (If using salt try the freebase) and the level of the nicotine (If you vaped f.e. 6mg try out 3mg) ... Then try out another ratio of VG/PG...

That should help, otherwise I would personally search up a doctor.

Greetings and welcome to the worlds best vaping forum

Chris

RE: Sick from vaping? Need advice!
Thanks Chris.  Def not the nicotine.  Heavy smoker.  My brother is dropping me off some vg/pg juice.  I'm going to try and see if that will help.  I vaped the 100%vg again this afternoon and my chest felt really heavy and I started weezing.  I dont want to smoke anymore and I thought I found my answer with  vaping. Hoping the lower vg ratio will help

It can still be the nicotine even if you were a heavy smoker, because it reacts otherwhise then the nicotine in cigarettes.
Nicotine in cigarettes takes up from 5-8 seconds to go into your bloodline, the freebase nicotine from the vape takes up to 15 Minutes to have the same effect, nic salts about 1 minute.
Thats why most of the people grab higher dosed nicotine and vape and vape and get headaches from vaping from an slightly nicotine overdose for example.

But try out the other juice, maybe this will help out :-)

I cannot vape over 60% VG or I start hacking up VG.
No fever and such though.
I vape 50/50 PG/VG.

However I do have bad reactions to some ingredient (s) in commercial ejuice.
Bad oral, throat and lung irritation.
And why I almost gave up pon vaping and went back to smoking.
But I started DIY very quickly with 100% natural flavorings and then found some regular flavorings that I could tolerate.
That was well over 4 years ago. Still vaping and kicked a 40 yr 1.5 PAD smoking habit and feel much better.

RE: Sick from vaping? Need advice!
Good point , low end juice can have some nasty things in it , unfortunately big price tag doesn't always mean quality . Btw never buy those 4.99 juices at the corner store , unless ofcorsd your trying to get rid of a nuisance raccoon .

Why be normal when wierd is so much fun.
