Vaping Making Me Sick Flu Like Symptoms

Quitting smoking/cigarettes is hard enough. Especially when you’ve been addicted nicotine for many years. Electronic cigs have been the bridge for many ex-smokers to a cigarette-free life.

Electronic cigarettes do have substantially fewer chemicals than traditional analogue cigarettes. But e-cigs are not 100% safe. However, if you’ve experienced flu-like symptoms when vaping, there could be reasons why.

The Symptoms:


  • Muscle or body aches
  • Fatigue (tiredness) Sleepiness or Dizziness
  • Sore throat
  • Feeling feverish or have chills (shaking)
  • Cough
  • Sore or stiff neck
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • HeadachesVaping constantly can induce flu-symptoms. Especially if you sit by your computer all day and find yourself in the habit of constantly vaping without thinking about it.

    Potential Reasons Why You’re Feeling Sick:

    A too high percentage of nicotine intake. Too much nicotine in your system can make you feel sick. Stop completely, cut down on vaping or dilute your e-juice with glycerin by 50 percent.

    Your atomizer is burnt-out. In this case, stop vaping and replace your e-cig with a new atomizer. Burnt atomizers/wicks can produce chemicals that can make you feel sick.

    It’s important to note that these may not be the only reasons for feeling sick when vaping.

    If you continue to feel worse, call your doctor and seek medical attention as soon as possible.
