sore throat & mouth
« on: November 27, 2011, 01:17:50 AM »
Hi all, I'd like to know if anyone is having or has had a problem with their mouth/gums and/or throat being sore from using their e-nic's. Both myelf and a friend who also started vaping at the same time are having a bit of a problem. I don't think it is due to excessive use as we are not heavy users. We do not share e-nic's either. We each have our own e-cigs so I'm sure its nothing that has been transferred between the two of us. I'm really enjoying using my e-nic and am seriously hoping I can find a solution other than to stop using it, espically as I have invested a huge amount of money in all my gear. I'd love to hear from anyone who has encounted the same issue or who might have any advice. Thanks so much, Linda  :'(

sore throats and dry mouths have been often reported.  you need to make sure and drink plenty of fluids while vaping.  especially ice cold.  in the beginning i was plagued with the same but since constant hydration while vaping, it's not been a problem.
Help wanted.  Need assistant to refill my cartos and charge my batteries must be willing to work for eliquid wages.

Dehydration is often the reason for sore throats etc. Sore gums is often an after effect of what you are not doing any more ;) (i can't be more specific due to the rules)

Hi Linda, and welcome to the forum.

Like cath said, it might be more to do with what you're not doing anymore than what you are doing now.  I've experienced the same thing in the past when "taking a break from an old habit", and wasn't vaping.  Sore throat, lips, and tongue.  Give it some time and it should sort itself.  If not, maybe you should check with a doctor just to be sure. :)

Hello Linda and welcome to the forum.
This problem hit me really bad since I normally is dehydrated due to the fact I am drinking way to little.
My gum was bleeding sometimes.
But It got better, somehow I got used to it and now 4 months later I have no problem with it any longer.
And I am not drinking any more today.
So for me it took about 3 months do get used to it. it was getting better and better. It was not like that
I woke up one morning and it was gone... So if you think of drinking something while vaping you will
most likely be fine during the adjustment period...

I use a dual-coil and I find that the first vapes of the day burn my lungs. I dont get a sore throat or mouth, but on a couple of occassions the inside of my mouth (the sides) kinda flare up - Its hard to describe but if you imagine your fingertips after having a long bath (wrinkly and whitish), thats what its like. A couple of times in a year is nothing major tho  :)

I've noticed that some of the flavors are more "dry", and some are not as dry, if that makes sense...  Certain ones, I find myself needing some water after a few pulls, some I can vape all day and not drink any more than normal.  I wonder if you are vaping some of the drier flavors?

Some flavors can have that effect especially strong flavors. I have a bottle of Rum flavor that I only vape once in a while, it makes my throat sore. Generally if I'm on a heaver vaping session, watching TV, reading, I always have a cold drink usually water or iced tea at hand. When I first started I noticed the soreness but that was because my throat was healing up from not smoking cigs. I've been vaping 2.5 years and I'm not giving it up.

I'm getting sore gums and sore roof of mouth. It's eased today as I've kept on the iced water.

When I started :( vaping and off analogues about a month ago I had sore throat and got really sick. But my gums didnt bleed. My hands were shaking (nic fit)
I don't know if it was because I stopped analogues within a day of getting my e cig or what but I can relate.
I hope it gets better for u!

Hey all. I agree with alllll the above but will add a few things

personally the sore throat etc lasted about a week with me.

As stated try stay hydrated and after the initial period you should be fine.

Just be aware there is a few flu like bugs going around just now that are also causing sore throats etc so may be that as well.

My thoughts on the dry mouth and sore throat/mouth/gums etc is this
the way nicotine is delivered is different to that of a cigarette. the solution in the quantities you are now exposing yourself to are more than usual. the levels of nicotine are different to what you will be used to.

any change in any substance in substantial, sustained amounts will take about a week for your body to adjust to. just like any long term medication or diet change. therefore its no coincidence it takes about this long for your body to get used to a new nicotine delivery system. hence the symptoms your exhibiting. none the less always take precautions if it persists see a doctor as it may be something other than your e cig causing any issues.

Might depend on how many cigs you used to smoke. Might take a few days to a couple weeks to get over the withdrawals. I never did have any bleeding gums so I don't know what that's about. Over time I've found my nicotine level has dropped, I used to do 18mg and now do 11mg. The 18mg gives me a headache.

You're using low nic.  You might want to bump it up.  I started with 18mg and a few hits did it for me.  I dropped down to 11mg so I can vape more, then I found the dry mouth and soreness but I was vaping more because not enough nic in my system.  I smoked a pack a day so I should be higher than 18mg.  IMHO, e cig's are like patches and gums.  You vape in moderation.  Too much results in too much nic in your system and you find high blood pressure and rapid heart rates.  18mg is the best choice.  A few puffs every hour and you're good.  Your body won't crave more.

Well, 18mg may be the best choice for you.  But that doesn't mean it's the best choice for everyone.  We're all individuals (unless you're a Siamese twin ;)) and as such, we all have our own approach to vaping.  It's not really possible to correlate your analog preference (strength) and smoking habits with your ejuice strength and vaping habits.  Some of us vape more than we smoked, and some of us smoked more than we vape, and some of us choose to both smoke and vape.  When you first start vaping it's a bit of a steep learning curve.  There's a lot to learn about the PV and how to properly use it to prevent flooding and dry hits, and too, you've got to find some flavors you like (or at least can live with) and a nic strength that suits your needs based on your vaping style and nic tolerance.  For the former you'll find plenty of help here on the forum.  For the latter you pretty much on your own.  While general advice and guidelines can be given, there's really only one person that can help you with finding flavors and the best nic strength.... you!  You've got to try some different flavors to find what suits (I can tell you about the flavors I love, but you may hate them), and you've got to listen to your body to find the eliquid strength that suits your vaping style.  Some vape more often, some vape less.  Some take huge hits and hold it in longer, other's just take little girlie vapes ( hi caz! :-*).

I smoked 1.5-2 packs a day of ultra-lights.  I get all my nic now from vaping because I've found I just like vaping better than smoking (it's a choice I've made for my own enjoyment, and for no other reason ;)).  So, I've gone from 1.5-2 packs of analog ultra-lights to chain vaping.  I chain vape because I like it.  I start the day with 18-20mg juice for that first-thing-in-the-morning nic kick.  I vape 4-8mg most of the day.  And at night I sometimes vape 0 nic juice.  Just listen to what your body's telling you and adjust accordingly.  If you're experiencing signs of nic overload (hic cups, headache, etc) either reduce the nic content of you juice if you want to keep on vaping, or vape less often.  If you're experiencing nic cravings either increase the strength of your juice or vape more.  You'll quickly sort out a nic level in your juice that works for your style of vaping.  The sad fact is that no one can tell you the best eliquid strength for you, or predict what strength of eliquid might best suit you based on the parameters of your "other" habit. :)

Yes.  You've found me out Ms. P.  I have cold feet now. ???    ;D

If you're going to stay for a natter then I won't be in any hurry to leave.  I'll just sit here and gnaw on my arm for tea (you did bring me a cupa didn't you?) while we have a chat.

And what's this about "...what you did to deserve all those stars with your avatar."?  Darth promised he wouldn't tell. :'(   And I did it with my avatar?? ???

Honestly, I've no idea what you're on about Ellie..... I just write what the voices in my head tell me to (and I really need to get another roll of tin foil ).   ;D

Yes I do vape 18mg now also had to start with 36mg when I first started. At first I didnt understand the shakes as I've only
Done the other thing a few years as I'm very young so I didn't think of the nicotine content and bought the 11 mg for my first juice but ordered a 36 mg a few days later .. Phew...
Thanks for the info ;)

I had bleeding gums from about week 5 to 7 but seems to have stopped now. Im now getting spots on face and neck but Im guessing this is just my body getting used to the change. I would liken it to detox symptoms.
