Default Major Headaches

So the last few times I smoked out of my 29" egyptian hookah; I had Star Buzz brands of social smoke, and margarita. With it I put Ice in the base to make it cooler, and I used 3 Exotica coals(lit all the way through). Both times started out okay typical lightheaded, and good taste then my skull felt like it was throbbing so I quit and let my girlfriend finish it off. I have never got such horrible headaches before.
I am clueless to why I got them. Maybe it was Starbuzz? Or maybe I am just weak? Lol. Well I really don't know.
Any thoughts?
Any advice to help avoid this pain next time?

Did you eat anything before hand, and did you drink while smoking?

I ate ramen before and drank punch during the first time the second time I ate but didn't drink. Usually I can go with out drinking or eating and be completely fine.

something that i was struggling with was headaches over the last few smoking sessions...

It has been said before on these forums and i will repeat it. Make sure your coals are FULLY LIT. If they are not, you are breathing in carbon monoxide!! Your pretty much poisioning yourself.

The coals should be red all around, rotate them and I keep mine on the stove for about 10 minutes to make sure they are ready to go!

Hmm, I leave my coals on the stove for about 5 minutes I will try 10 next time.
About the food and drink; I will keep food in me and drink during next time aswell. Yet, I don't think it was that that caused the headache. They were too strong to be a simple foodless headache. Not even Ibuprofen could stop the pain.

Thank you all for your help!

Sounds like you've been taking puffs and puffs without any breathing breaks lol.

Since your new to hookah, your tolerance for the nicotine is going to be low since your body isn't used to it. Just breathe in between takes for 30 mins and pace yourself.

Hmm, well I rotate them and it starts to ash on all sides. I am very particular about coals I will not smoke if there is ANY black on them.

Yes I don't take many breaks except when I pass the hose. The nicotine shouldn't effect me much I don't think. I use to smoke cigarettes allot.

Yup yup true true. But the thing is, idk, but from my experience, I have smoked cigs before i smoked hookah. I never got the tremendous buzz from cigs like I did with hookah.

I guess its because your taking in a huge amount of smoke in your lungs and that's why the buzz is much more stronger than cigs, especially if your don't take breaks in between. but hey I could be wrong. :P

The buzz I think is from the lack of oxygen. I mean I never really hear of people who smoke cigs with no breath in between or inhale for a while. When I do its followed by and they got sick or something like that.

I love the buzz of Hookah that is why I quit smoking cigs and went to hookah. The headaches though I can deal without

It might be that your body is not used to the CO. Your body will eventually adapt to having the amounts of carbon monoxide in your body though. I remember I got headaches the first time i smoked alone. A good nap will fresh air with probably cure the headache.

Before I got my Hookah I went to the local hookah bar. I didn't get headaches there and I use to smoke a bowl alone.

hmmm...how new is your hookah? Maybe it's that new "stuff" smell, because that scent gives me nasty headaches too.

Default Re: Major Headaches

Are either of these flavors new to you? Some people have reactions to certain flavors or mixes. You were clear enough in your OP that the coals were completely lit, so not going to question that again. Food and drink will help with buzzes, nausea and dry mouth but for headaches? Never helped with any I have had. If you can't figure out what it was you can always take an Advil before your sessions to help until you do figure it out.
