probably just a cold, alot of times they start off with headaches, but I do know cheap coals that produce alot of co2 or tabacco with large amounts of nicotine, can give a headache, but nothing would give you symtoms like that, I know once I got sick from too much nicotine and I threw up, its possible that, if you've been smoking for 9 years, and your not smoking now, its withdraws.

It could be many things but, one thing I have done is drink a glass of water during your session. It helped my headaches a lot.

Also if your at a hookah bar, mind your tips. My friend smoked there without a tip and got a nasty cold.

It may just been the thing that pushed your cold over the edge. I wouldn't associate the hookah with the illness, but although passion kiss has disapointed me not twice but thrice...

Sounds like the flu or bacterial bronchitis to me. I'd go see a doctor. If it's a bacterial infection it will only get worse until you get some antibiotics. I'm certain it's completely unrelated to hookah smoking. Allergies don't cause fevers as high as yours. I hope you feel better soon.

don't smoke when your sick. it seems amazing at first, but the next day you will wake up feeling worse than you did before. even if you're smoking a jasmine, honey, cardamom, and cinnamon flavor, it makes you feel worse the next day.

Sinus infections are nasty business. I had one several years ago that I let get so bad before seeing the doctor, one side of my face swelled to the point where my left eye closed up. My doctor bawled me out for twenty minutes about hesitating getting it checked out. He said it could have turned into meningitis, which scared me enough to never not take sinus infections seriously in the future.

Seems like a normal cold/flu. The only 'sick' you'll get from shisha is gonna be a bad tummyache. If you were at a lounge sharing the hose with other people might be the culprit.

then hookah probably wasn't the culprit at all. 'Tis the season - cold and flu season, that is.

When they swabbed you did they send it to a lab and give the results a few days later or did they give you the results right away? cause the test that is only 5 minutes until results has a 20% false positive... Which is extremely high. So it could be wrong. If your fever is still really high and your throat is hurting epically you should go back! Have someone check your throat for white spots with a flashlight.

I just got tonsillitis the on Sunday. They swabbed me and it was negative for strep, but they also did another swab for the lab to be positive. You could have it and not know if they didn't send the swab to the lab.

As for the puking it could be the nicotine. I quit smoking cigarettes and then chained smoked while driving from PA to MA on Tuesday came back and puked for 6 hours... partially during my physics lab... OOPS... hehe.

I doubt its from smoking with a fever like that... But you should definitely go back to the doctor. You could definitely have strep or tonsillitis...

Feel better!!!

argghh, sinus infections....nasty business indeed, I had one about a month ago, the left side of my face was throbbing and aching for 2 weeks, I was off work for 3 days, on antibiotics, couldn't even play any PS3 so I just watched all the Star Wars films and my Kevin Smith collection.

Get well soon bro

I took over management of a lounge a few years ago. Only stayed for a few months...

Here's the thing: I was the first manager, let alone employee who would actually clean the hookahs (Aside from running warm water through them.) This is a lounge that makes an average of $800 a night, $1200 on weekends. Pretty heavy traffic. That's a lot of people putting a lot of mouths on those hoses, and nobody till me ever thought of dipping the hose tips in peroxide after use.

Needless to say, I haven't smoked in a lounge since.
