Whether they were related to vaping or not, those are very serious symptoms.

I would get a second opinion if I were you. If you went to a regular family doc, call them and tell them you would like a referral to a cardiologist.

I would also stop vaping for the time being.

it something like the ijust..its reading the coil resistance and it gives u the wattage automatically.. i had a 0.2 build in there so i guess it could give me up to 100

i also went to a neurolog and ahad some checkups and the doctor said that these symptoms may be related to stress but i'm not sure..
annnnd i'm not vaping for like 4 weeks after i had this attacks.. i'm feeling better now but i really need my nicotine

Sounds like an anxiety attack to me.... as i have gotten older they have reared their ugly head... talk about annoying mentally knowing what you need to do. They can severely stress your body too leaving after affects/symptoms

naah i was chain vaping 100w for 20 sec maximum
and then i was switching to my tight rta that gave me 15w max

Gawd dang 20 seconds of chain vaping @100 watts will make you feel that way, like I said on other threads, NICOTINE is a VASOCONSTRICTOR, it will constrict ur blood vessels, meaning less blood flow to ur body.... I know vaping is a better alternative than smoking cigarettes, but the nicotine consumption is more in VAPING...
Start low wattage in the morning, Give it a break, let ur lung and heart recover, meaning let ur blood vessels dilate again, make sure you are hydrated all the time...

Caffeine is a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STUMULANT, it gives us that WAKE THE FUCK UP FEELING.. so imagine if you are vaping constantly with nicotine (constricting blood flow) at the same time ur consuming caffeine? Ur body is CONFUSED! ur body doesn't know how to react?
It's like SHOULD I WAKE UP OR SHOULD I TAKE A NAP?!
Here's what you should do to avoid that happening again....
First thing you should do is
DRINK ATLEAST 8oz of water before anything else, drink decaf coffee
Start low in wattage
If you Chain vape?! STOP THAT SHIT!
give it a break!

For me it is knowing that i am just having an anxiety attack and controlling my breathing, sometimes laying on the floor in a dark cool room really helps. I dont get them often but the first time ever was wicked scary.. I was prolly 25 ish maybe a lil order when i first had one and it scared the crap out of me. And just because you mentally realize what is happening doesnt make it less annoying/scary but does offer some calm when going to deal with it... my brother had one so bad he literally felt like he was having a heart attack... he had to recover for a week or two from the stress his mind put on his body because his mind made it real ish

Ditto to the anxiety attack and stress. Stress can do crazy things.

You don't really "need" nicotine. You just think you do. It's called "addiction".

Stick with it, after 30 days you should be able to see that you are no longer wanting nicotine that much. With symptoms as serious as that, and given that you are obviously worried about them, you'd be a fool to not try to just quit, IMHO.

Our body is amazing bro, it will adjust as much as it could, but in time it will let you know... and what you experience was a wake up call...

Ummm... when you are ADDICTED to something.... YOU DO NEED IT!!! Telling yourself you don't need it, it's just addiction, does NOT make the addiction go away! Even something as relatively non-addictive as nicotine, if you THINK you are addicted to it, then you are, because a lot of addiction is mental.

When I smoked, I needed cigarettes, just to survive. That was addiction. Fortunately vaping came along and allowed me to end that addiction, but if the vaping disappeared... that need for cigarettes would return.

I agree that the OP's problem sounds more like an anxiety attack than anything else, but yes, probably complicated by caffeine and nicotine. I personally think caffeine is worse for you than nicotine, especially at the 1.5mg and 3mg dosages. But chain vaping at 100w would overstress anybody.

You may need the nicotine... but you don't need 100w, that's for damn sure. And you may need caffeine, at least in the morning... but it would be a good idea to reduce that, if it's going to cause you major problems like this.

Moderation. That's what it seems you need above all else. You don't need to get all your caffeine and nicotine in one massive blast.

Nope. That's silly reasoning. No offense.

If the OP (or anyone) were to stop using nicotine, he would not die. Therefore, it is not a true need. If an addiction was really a need, people addicted to life-threatening substances would never have any freedom from said substance and would be addicted for life. But we know that's not the case.

Just because nicotine (or even, let's say, excessive sugar intake) may be a hard addiction to quash, it does not mean they are truly needed. They are only needed insofar as your addiction dictates it either mentally, physically or both.

Food and water are true needs. You will eventually die without them if you were to stop using either. Nicotine and excessive sugar intake? Not so much.

Addictions to substances that are not needed to survive are not true needs. Addiction only makes it seem that way (again, either mentally, physically or both).

But I forgot, I'm on a vaping forum LOL.

Your reasoning is every bit as heartless, unempathetic, and lacking understanding as the doctor who tells a patient: "Just quit. You don't need to smoke." And I will tell you the same thing I would tell that doctor: fuck you, you obviously don't have a clue what you're talking about. When someone FEELS that they NEED something in order to be comfortable, THEN THEY NEED IT, period. Whether or not they would actually die without it is utterly irrelevant. By your reasoning, there simply isn't any such thing as addiction; all smokers and drunks and narcotics abusers could simply lay down their cigarettes or drinks or pills or syringes, because hey, they don't need it, they won't die without it. And there would be no need whatsofuckingever for vaping, because all smokers could simply lay those coffin nails down and walk away without a backward glance.

BULLSHIT.

PERCEIVING a need for something, may not be EXACTLY the same as needing it or one will DIE... but it FEELS that way, and that's really all that matters to the person who perceives that need. Telling them they don't need it, when they very clearly do feel a need for it, is just plain cruel and inhumane, and has no place... ON A VAPERS' FORUM.

You obviously don't know much about addiction.
While a large part of any addiction is psychological and ceremonial habit
physical addiction is a very real need that a body develops to some substances.

Read: http://alcoholrehab.com/addiction-articles/physical-and-psychological-addiction/
Physical Addiction Defined
To say that an individual is physically addicted on a substance means that they have an increased tolerance for it, and they will experience physical symptoms should they try to stop or reduce their intake substantially. These physical symptoms are more commonly referred to as withdrawals and they can include:

* Nausea and vomiting
* Body aches
* Seizures
* Changes to pulse rate
* Changes to blood pressure
* Noticeable shaking or body tremors
* Headaches
* Sweating
* High temperatures
* Changes to respiratory rate
* Diarrhea
* Restless leg syndrome

Physical or Psychological Addiction
It would be misleading to say that physical addiction and psychological addiction are completely separate. This is because the brain and the body are not different things – the brain is part of the body. It is possible for the person to have addiction symptoms that are predominately psychological in nature. A good example of this would be gambling or internet addiction. This means that they feel the need to engage in the behavior in order to cope or because they have a deep urge to do so. When it comes to alcohol and drugs the individual will usually develop both a physical and psychological addiction. The way this usually happens is that the person develops a psychological dependence first of all, and this drives them to keep using the drugs until they become physically addiction as well.

-----------------------------------------
Some substances mimic and replace natural substances in the brain.
The human brain then develops a very real (as opposed to imaginary) DEPENDENCE
on said substance, in our case and in context to this discussion, said substance is nicotine.

What you say above casts addicts in a "poor people they're weak willed" light
which is not the case. To an addict his or her drug is as important to survive as food and water..
Perhaps you never read The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers' Fat Freddy say, " **** will get you through
times of no money better than money will get you through times of no ****", So true and that ****
is only a psychological addiction.

As a former anti-drug addiction counselor
I have known people who have stolen and even killed in order to get a fix.

It could be an ingredient in the flavorings such as sucrolouse which some people are very allergic to or some other ingredient.....I had a sweet tooth for Naturally Extracted Tobacco e juices , and enjoyed vaping them all kinds of different tobaccos..one day I got some new juice from Oriental tobaccos..it hit me like a brick my sinuses shut down my eyes started burning and I got a splitting headache.....I just dumped the juice down the drain...about a year later I bought some other "oriental tobacco juice" from a differnt company....and he exact same thing happened to me....I assume there is some element of that tobacco that I'm allergic to...
