Can Vaping and Smoking too much cause headaches?
It has been confirmed by various studies that vaping is way safer than using tobacco cigarettes but does it have any side effect? In this blog, we will tell you all about it.
There have been many rumors around the web revolving around the side effects of vaping. Some of them are rather dreadful. You may feel find a relief in the fact that these rumors are nothing but fallacies. Where many studies have proved the erroneous nature of these rumors, 2018’s review of National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine has sealed the debate by deducing that vaping is much more safer than smoking tobacco-made cigarettes.
But then again, does ‘safer’ clear vaping out of the red zone? The answer is somewhere between yes and no. Many people who have been vaping for a long time have claimed that when they first started out, they started getting mild headaches as well. Sure, not all the people experienced these headaches, and those of them who did experience it also claimed that the headaches faded away after some time and eventually they disappeared.
But just to be on the safe side, let’s get to know what reasons lie behind these mild headaches.
Do you ever feel the dryness in your mouth right after you vape or during the act? Vape juices contain ingredients that have properties of drying. And when vapers inhale, these ingredients along with flavor are exhaled out in form of vapor leaving your mouth dry. That’s dehydration and it is a definite reason for having headaches. We can avoid these occasional headaches by drinking as much fluid as we can throughout the day and during vaping.
Whether you take a dose of nicotine through a cigarette, vape device or any other means, it can cause headache and dizziness. It is studied by experts that nicotine thins out your blood that prevents blood flow to the brain. As a result, headaches are caused. So best way to avoid this side effect is to reduce the doses of nicotine in your e liquid or buy a different vape juice that has a low strength of nicotine.
After discussing all the factors that might lead to headache, we can say that headaches aren’t something very serious. These headaches can even occur in a perfectly healthy human who doesn’t even vape. So, it all depends on the use and your body mechanisms. And you can minimize the effects by changing your e liquid and drinking plenty of water.
