Default ear/head ache when smoking

okay so I'm sat here smoking my HH evolution blueberry and my ears are starting to ache & feel kinda weird.
when I smoked my Soex (now in the trash) I got the same thing which then developed into a mass head ache, my friend got one too.

so Im surprised Im getting this from HH evo too.. could it be the coal?
Im using Cocobricos.


thanks

make sure the coals are 100% red hot before putting the on the hookah. otherwise the CO output could be causing the headache.

I get headaches if i smoke multiple bowls without eating beforehand. I've also noticed I can get a headache if I'm only smoking with one other person and we tend to chain smoke for a bit. I always thought it was like a lack of oxygen.

How is the draw on the Hookah if too tight could cause the ear ache remember that your ear and respiratory tract are connected with the eustation tube so if the draw is tight you would place more stress on your ears

When you pull on the hose it should be like breathing light and effortless.

If you hold your nose closed and blow your ears should pop if it is painful when you do that could be a sign of middle ear infection.

check your setup and coals are the big ones, the other variables may be the shisha itself, might just be no good for you.

My friend would always get a head ache as well, and as stupid as it sounds as a solution, breathing regular air in between puffs really keeps you from getting light headed and such. Eating a good meal before-hand also helps. Orange juice can help out your head if you're too lazy to cook something up. The ear thing does kinda just sound like you have an ear infection, or you need to pop your ears. Good luck with your problem! :]
