Default Help! Crazy hookah headache!

Hi im new on here, from England. I've been smoking Hookah for about 5 years now but not that much in the last year. I purchased a new Mya Gyro (ruby red) Hookah from Hookah-Shisha, it's beautiful. Never tried a KM but the amount it smokes is more than enough for me.

Anyway i smoked it the other day for the first time after a few months because my last eqgyptian broke using AF Grape, new cut. Didn't get any problems because the Mya bowls have very small holes. I used 2 natural coals but normally only use 1 and made sure they were fully red and i ate before i smoked but I got the worst headache you can imagine, i went to sleep, woke up and my head was still banging. Went to sleep last night and my head is still banging. Ive been drinking lots of water and taking paracetamols but its not going away, even after 2 days.

Come to think of it i've never had a heasdache from smoking Hookah except for when i used these certain natural coals that i got from this place that happen to sell me fake AF aswell so im thinking its got to be the coals and because ive used 2 it's even worse.

Sorry about the long post but to get to the point, what should i do?

Hmm maybe its been so long from the last time you smoked, that your body couldn't handle all that nicotine. This is what happened to me a few days ago (first time smoking in a 3-4 break) and I had the worst migraine you could imagine! I was also nauseous as well.

I agree with esisomsun. If you were using quick lights, I can understand the headaches, but naturals? That is very odd. I don't really have an answer for you, sorry. Did you take your time with the smoking or did you constantly take deep hits? Because that can do it to you. I've gotten headaches (very minor ones) from using Coco Nara coals but that's because I'm thick-headed and try to see just how much I can huff and puff, ha! Coco Naras are the greatest though, I don't believe I'll try any others. I'm very sorry to hear about your headache but really the only answer I have is simply to stay hydrated and take your time with the smoking. Maybe someone more experienced can come along and answer your question much better than I can

Hum, does sound like maybe your body wasn't up to the amount of smoke/nicotine you went thru. Unless it was a "bed" batch of naturals (and yes, they can occur), I would tend to think is was just your body's reaction.

Next time I would suggest either smoking half the length of time you did this last time, or try to smoke more for taste rather than large clouds. Also, eating before is good, but try drinking water & maybe munching during smoking. It makes you slow down and allows more O2 and CO/nicotine to reach the lungs.

That should help you out a lot.
It may be the natural coals. Make sure they're hookah safe.
It may also just be you.

I was smoking like crazy by myself, i was drinking water aswell and have been doing so ever since so im definitely not dehydrated. Although i was using the naturals, i think they might be suspiciou because the same place also sells fake Al Fakher. Could it be because it was the ne cut AF? Truth is ive never smoked AF before because i can only get Nakhla over here. the headache is a little bit better now but ive had it for 2 days and it's getting really frustrating.

All i know is that the ones i used where black, long, cylinder shaped. I think its charcoal. I doubt its a nic rush, not for 2 days, i though shisha doesn't contain much nicotine anyways?

Hmm. I dont know. I do tend to get Headaches from certian brands or falvors though. not just a bad batch but from the stuff that they put in it or the flavoring. Try going lighter on the tabbacco
