Default Smoking too much?

So today, I was at a party and couldn't drink so i passed the time by smoking. Lets just say i smoked a lot.. at least three bowls (other people were joining in, but it was mainly me). Now a few hours after, my chest feels rather tight, and just kinda painful. Its got me really worried. Im in relatively good shape, run on occasion, and have great lungs from being a sax player. Does this happen to anyone else.. and im guessing its a sign i should really take it easy?

It happens to me on occasion, but like MrBungle said, they are just a little stressed from the smoking....give em a bit...the human body is wonderful at repairing it self.

If your hookah setup is a bit tight, meaning harder pull. You might get a headache and also ear block cause you're stressing your chest from pulling your already tight hookah setup. I was hit by one of the local Shisha vendors here when their setup is so tight that I've to pull hard. eventually making myself tired and my head aches.

space it out, drink plenty(water that is) and you'll be fine. A few days off the pipe and you'll be up and running again, no worries, I've been there

It's a phase, I never smoke more than 2 bowls in a sitting, I alwats eat first and always have a bottle of water with me. Before i never used to do this, and would have headaches and ear block from continuious sessions followed by hookah sickness.
But now that i've got this routine the most i get is a mild headache after many sessions, just take it easy and everything will be just fine.

i smoke about 3 times a day for over a year and haven't experience much some shortness of breath but that is probably from allergies. I agree with MrBungle though.

Yeah, i had the worst session last night. I have a 2 hose set up, and me and one other friend smoked one bowl, and then started a second. I realized I should make it home soon, so we(and by we i mean me mostly) took a bunch of long with both hoses in the mouth at the same time.
Long story short.. i lost my balance in the kitchen and hit the coffee *** on my head.
Sooo .. i would say, it is better to waste some shisha, than try to smoke a bunch down at once. >.<

it depends on what you are smoking, for example that will happen to me with sb but i can smoke nakhla and tangiers as much as i can handle and there is no irritation. as a vendor i wish you guys were hookhed on sb (more profits) but as a consumer i will only smoke whats makes me feel better. yes sb has those great scents and they are great if you want to smoke once a week for 15 minutes, but for the everyday smoker it's best to keep away from too much artificial junk. oh, and coals will play a huge factor as well.

I'm going to go with a tight pull as well. even after 30 minutes of smoking from a hookah with a tight pull, i get muscle pains in my neck and chest from the stress of having a tight pull. But with hookahs that have a very fluid, easy pull... no matter how much i smoke, that doesn't happen.
Eat, and drink TONS of water (or gatorade/tea/vitamin water, etc.).

I have to agree again with John on this one...take this advice to heart, literally.
