    Can you develop a sensitivity to pg after vaping for a long time? I vaped for a year with no problems. Then I shamefully went back to cigarettes for a few months. Almost as soon as I began to vape again it seemed like the sides of my neck were getting tight or inflamed. Its causing all kind of problems. My bp is high because, I think, its constricting my jugular , I have pressure in my ears, I get really dizzy. I've had a shit ton of tests done so I'm pretty sure nothing is wrong with me. This has been going on for months now. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

    Are you vaping the exact same juice you did before?
    I have sensitivity to some ingredients in many commercial ejuice's.

    Your symptoms sound more like vertigo or an ear infection, but a doctor could determine that much better than I. You can develop an allergy or sensitivity to anything at any time, that much is true. But if I really thought PG was the culprit, my first move would be to buy a juice with a lower PG content to experiment.

    Yeah I've been using the same juice the entire time. Its mister-e ry4 I think its 50/50 and 6 mg nicotine. I have tried high vg juices for a week or so and still felt the same pressure in my neck and ears. Ive had like ten different doctors check out my symptoms. The last one actually did think maybe fluid in my ears is causing it. And now when I think back, after starting to vape again my nose has been running pretty much constantly and my throat sometimes get irritated. What confuses me though is that the symptoms go away sometimes for a couples weeks and I can vape all day and not feel dizzy, and my bp will go back down to normal. I'm trying to stop vaping completely, its very hard, and if that solves everything Ill update

    Welcome to VU. It sounds like you have a sinus infection. Your BP could spike if you are vaping in more nicotine than when you were smoking. I am by no means a doctor but what you describe sounds sinus related.

    maybe, but its been over a year. I was thinking maybe indoor allergies. There is definitely a problem with the neck muscles on the front sides, the sternocleidomastoid muscles, or something behind them. My doctor at least confirmed that those muscles constricting or swelling can raise my bp. And it can cause ear problems. The reason I feel so strongly its my vape doing this to me is that I will feel fine all morning and after I hit my vape a few times I start feeling it. The only way to know is to stop, and I really, really don't want to stop.
