Default Is it just me?

Or does anybody else get strange "rib" pains if they smoke too often or too hard? I've smoked everyday this weekend, twice yesterday and last night my ribs started hurting.

This isn't the first time this pain has happened, so I know it's related to "too much hookahing", basically to large of hits and way too often (for my body to handle).

Does anybody else suffer from strange Hookah related aches?

No, but I smoked some really crappy shisha last night, and I have a stuffy nose this morning. It may be allergy related though.

...if I smoke too often, I eat alot, lol. I never really get headaches or stomach aches. Smoking makes me hella hungry. I usually eat something small before I smoke, and then feast after

See, it's not really a stomach pain - it's a muscel/rib pain. Right under the diaphram - it's weird. I seem to be the only person to get it as I've asked all the other hookahers I know. It's just real weird and painful.

Imagine a pulled side muscel, right under your ribcage - both sides.

...you said it. Its possible you over-used that part of your body. Inhaling works many muscles, several within the diaphragm. If you possibly smoked too much, that one muscle might have been over-worked, causing the uncomfortable feeling you got now that your describing...I could be wrong though.

if that be the case, review your technique.

Do you draw hard? If so, try drags at breathing pace. If you have a cobra hose or similar type hose, those help a lot in comparison to mya like hoses..

I never heard of what you're talking about but i'd suggest giving up on the huge hits and having a more relaxed, soothing smoke. Huge clouds look neat but I think it's punishing your lungs. You should limit your draws to once a minute or so during a session and keep your sessions down to a hour or so a day. Personally, I "sip" when I smoke just enjoying the taste and sight of my rig while I chat with friends or listen to music. I don't get massive clouds but I never feel light headed or sick. Smoking should be a relaxing way to thrill your senses.

I don't "draw" hard, but I do tend to draw deep - hold and slowly let it out. (Think reverse yoga breathing). I'm not a smoker by nature, but I'm proabaly just taxing my system too much.

All the more excuse to get that dang Nammor all the sooner... nice wide open hose should be easier on the draw.
