Juuling is a slang word in Korea that describes the feeling of pressure or pain in the lower chest; it’s also the Korean word for coughing.
Many people believe that the nicotine in e-cigarettes causes headaches and migraines.
This is probably because nicotine is a very strong drug. When you vape or inhale, you’re inhaling the nicotine in the e-cigarette. This causes the nicotine to enter the bloodstream, which travels to the brain, where it can produce the headaches and migraines.
However, there are also other factors that can cause these effects.
The nicotine in e-cigarettes is not the only ingredient that can cause headaches and migraines.
The other two main ingredients in e-cigarettes are propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin.
These ingredients are very similar to those that are used in many over-the-counter pain medications. If you have migraines or headaches from using e-cigarettes, you may want to talk with your doctor about alternative, non-nicotine-based pain medications.
Some e-cigarette manufacturers add flavorings to their product, which can give it a sweet or fruity taste. These flavors may also cause headaches and migraines.
Other ingredients that can cause headaches and migraines:
- Menthol and camphor
- Other possible ingredients
