Default Re: headaches

Could be caused by a number of things. Such as:

Quicklight coals
Dyes/flavorings in the tobacco
sub-par metals used in the cheaper pipes
Dehydration
Nicotine overdose (if you were smoking something unwashed)

Or a combination of the above.

The little headache you get from smoking Nakhla and especially Tangiers is a buzz. Nakhla gives you a little one but Tangiers is designed to give you a buzz. Anyways...smoking hookah to me is like getting ready to go out and get drunk. Always have food in your stomach and BE HYDRATED!!!!! I can't emphasize enough the hydration part. I would highly recommend drinking water while smoking too or atleast drink something. Anybody who is smoking at my house now drinks water while doing so because one time my one friend kind of thew up a little bit on the bathroom rug because she wasn't hydrated. So now it's my rule that you drink something while smoking at my house! lol

P.S. I personally don't think either Nakhla or Tangiers are shitty tobaccos lol. I love them both!

El-Nakhla* is one of the best tobaccos money can buy, dont bad mouth it cause you cant handle your smoke.

I agree with Nick. Just because you don't like a particular brand of tabacco that doesn't mean that you get a headache from that. You just need to keep drinking while smoking. Smoking dries you out and you'll get the headache.

In my oppinion Al Nakhla is the best brand I have tasted but everyone has there own oppinion about that.

Just never put the blame of not feeling good or headache or whatever on the brand of tabacco. It has almost always a different reason.

Yeah, I've gotten many a headache before. One of the worst was when I got my first hookah when I was still pretty new and I smoked a lot without eating or drinking anything for a long time. Then had to go outside and wash and wax two cars in 90+ degree weather. Hookah sickness mixed with heat exhaustion equals throwing up and dry heaving in the bathroom. I once had a summer counselor who always said "Hydrate or die."

I can second the shitty tobacco. We smoked Nile Peach tobacco (for not even ten minutes before we threw it out) and it was absolutly horrible. Dont ever buy that stuff

I saw nile as a "top shelf" Shisha at a smoke i never visit for any tobacco needs. Was hoping they had changed their stock. Oh no, still in the stone age.

Anywho, I get headaches from time to time, AF tobacco but I do believe it is keeping hydrated and well fed. I mean, the "throught tickle" of AF makes me cough kinda bad somtimes, and that may cause the aches, but usually i drink water to combat that feeling and i dont get headaches while drinking the water. Drink!

if you get a headache from hookah...excedrin with something sweet and a caffeine drink. Then hydrate and hydrate.

to prevent it in the first place: full stomach, hydrate before, durring and after. Fully lit coal preferably a natural coal. take a minimum of 10 seconds between pulls (dont chain), if you get a buzz slow down even more.

I rarely get headaches but have before.

What really bothers me is that lately I have been feeling sick after smoking. I might just be smoking too much.

Drink some water, take pauses when you smoke, breath some fresh air. Could have been bad shisha too ?

Like ari said, one of the biggest causes of headaches is coals and dehydration. If you use quicklights you are asking for headaches, if you are using nats, make sure they are glowing red, no black, before smoking.

I think it's from CO poisoning. I always laugh to myself whenever I see someone get a 'buzz' off of Hookah-Hookah, Al-Fakher, 'Herbals', or the likes. There is not enough nicotine (IMO) for a human to get a buzz off of said brands.

I have to agree, both are great tobaccos to me... And this is a great rule! Always drink a glass or two while smoking, especially if you plan on drinking alcohol because that will dehydrate you more... No one likes when a friend throws up on your bathroom rug XD

There are a few reasons why:

*If you didnt light your coal up all the way (still some black on coal) then that could cause it
*Maybe the shisha brand has an affect

just drink water and rest, ull be fine
