We’ve recently been made aware of an issue being encountered by new vape users called a “vaping headache”. It typically occurs for a few hours after vaping and can be difficult to try and work around.
We’ve done a bit of research into this and we’re pleased to report that the causes of the headaches are not concerning, and it is easy to manage vaping headaches and prevent them from becoming too severe.
To ensure you feel comfortable tackling the problem, consider this article to be a PSA. You’ll thank us later!
What Causes Vaping Headaches?
There are a couple of different causes for a vaping headache, and they’re not concerning, but it is important to address them. Let’s take a look at two of the primary causes for the phenomenon:
- Nicotine is, as you might expect, a stimulant. When you consume it, it narrows the blood vessels in the brain temporarily. For some people, this can cause a headache.
- E-liquids contain chemicals which can cause dehydration if smoked in large amounts. A lack of hydration in the body is one of the leading causes of a headache.
How to Prevent Vaping Headaches
When it comes to preventing a vaping headache, there are a few things you can do. You will be pleased to know that it’s not difficult to prevent a headache.
It is worth experimenting with nicotine-free liquids. Nicotine-free content is really available from outside, and many major providers have nicotine-free alternatives to the majority of successful brands.
You should also consider hydrating regularly. If you are going to use your device for an extended period, grab a bottle of water and take it with you. This will help you to stay hydrated and prevent a headache from occurring.
Consider reducing the usage of your device on an everyday basis. If you’re somebody who is constantly smoking, you should try and cut it back a bit. Taking regular breaks will allow your body to adjust and prevent a headache from occurring.
You should also make sure that you take care of yourself both physically and mentally. A headache is often made worse if you are battling poor mental health, or you aren’t sleeping right, or you have a bad diet. Make sure that you take care of your body in order to minimise the harmful impacts of a headache, both physical and mental.
A vaping headache is not a serious problem. It is caused by very easily identifiable things, and resolved by standard methods of pain relief and prevention. It is not something major, and we do not recommend that you become concerned about it.
