Went to Dr. today, said I had a severe respiatory infection "near bronchitis" - a guy I work with got sick the weekend he went to Bonnaroo and I might have caught it from him. (bonnaroo was probably a f*ing A-bomb of infection with all those dirty hippies rubbing against eachother)
I have been using ecigs since mid March, started with nJoy and a little over a month ago moved to a Yeti
A few things concern me after seeing the Dr.
1) emedicinehealth says under bronchitis causes:
So I am hoping its from a virus or some other pathagen and not from vaping.Bronchitis also can occur when you inhale irritating fumes or dusts. Chemical solvents and smoke, including tobacco smoke, have been linked to acute bronchitis.
2) I have been using PG based liquid, mostly at 18 - 24mg, I started to notice some irritation of my nasal passages a couple weeks ago (and finally went to the dr. today from trouble swallowing, soar throat and sinus irritation)- I have dropped down to 11mg and it seems to be less harsh on my throat, but I am worried that the inflammation and congestion are from vaping. I havent been using it much the past couple days because my throat and sinuses are RAW and I have a ton of drainage in my throat.
I am taking an antibiotic so i should know in a few days if its infection or vapor - I don't know if the vapor irritating my throat made me more suceptable to infection? I havent had a respiratory infection in years.
I have read a lot of threads that recommend VG instead of PG but I haven't seen any sites that mention this in the ingredients. Does anyone know a good place to get VG liquid as opposed to PG?
I am hoping this will go away soon because I really enjoy vapor...
