Default headaches

So, I have recently discovered that when I wash my hookah, I get headaches more often than if I don't clean it. Am I doing something wrong or does anyone know why? Maybe I am just crazy and its unheard of......

I get headaches while I am smoking after I clean it. I just use water on the head, stem, and base then don't clean the hose.....

maybe if your shisha is cleaner, the flavour is stronger and tastes nicer for longer.

Make sure you drink a lot of water, shisha dehydrates you. Also try to smoke in a nice open place with room temperature not too hot, if it gets hot your head will hurt.

all good advice that I will try. maybe m room just happens to be hot when I clean my hookah out. I have noticed that I get headaches when my room is really hot..... as for dehydration, I also smoke cigarettes so I am always hydrated. I might be interested in trying a KM. how much you looking for?

If you're washing it with water only, it makes no sense at all...

When you don't clean it, do you sit for longer or do you get up at once just like when you are about to clean it?
If not, it's probably because you are standing and your blood is rushing away from your head.
Noticed that myself on one of my friends, he's okay when he's sitting, but as soon as he stands up he get's pale and gets a headache.
All in all, the reason is that you're dehydrated as stated above me, just make sure to drink some water or soda during your sessions.
Alcohol wont actually help you stay hydrated, as it dehydrates you. Just have a glass of water nearby!

How does smoking cigarettes keep you hydrated?

A local shop owner told me a while ago, drink a cola while smoking if you have a headache. I have always had something to drink before/during/after smoking hookah. I'm a bit weird and I can smoke on an empty stomach and be fine. But make sure you have some food and drink in your body before smoking.

Drink a big glass of water and eat a good sized meal 15 or 20 minutes before smoke

As for the coke - It's true. It's because of the potassium in red can classic coke. (only red can coke has it) You could also eat a banana. I always drink coke when I have a migraine and water, but I usually take my migraine meds w/ coke.

i stay hydrated from cigs because they dehydrate me so i make sure i drink water all day. i can also smoke on an empty stomache and be fine. i dont clean it right away, i usualy wait until the next morning or right before i smoke. the coke idea is something i will try. SB isnt that potent and im smoking Nakhla right now and I am fine. I think it is the heat in my room. I havnt gotten a headache since i have been aware of the heat. thanks everyone for the help

I've had the same thing.
While smoking Starbuzz I get a headache, and sometimes get lightheaded.
But not when I smoke Nahkla, it's a bit wierd really.

Anytime I don't drink while I'm smoking I get a pretty bad headache. These headaches don't go away easily, I always sleep them off.

Honestly the headaches are dependent on several factors.
1. Not enough water while smoking
2. You don't smoke a lot so too much nicotine in your system causes the headaches.
3. You are on an empty stomach
4. You might be using bad quicklights/coals
5. You are not taking breaks in your session
