    About a month ago I picked up Shamrock cookie by Sadboy 6mg nic 70/30 vg/pg blend I tried it for a couple of days and noticed my anxiety levels went through the roof and I started to have hearing changes and my throat felt like it was swollen followed by nonstop belching, stomach pains, sweating, and excess phlegm in the back of the throat. So I assumed I got nic sick, so I went back to my vape shop and purchased Jammonster Blueberry 3mg which is a 75/25 vg/pg and Jammonster Grape in 3mg Nic which is also a 75/25 vg/pg blend. I had no problems with the Blueberry but got the same symptoms of bloating, gas, and swollen throat with the grape. So I went back to my vape shop and bought air factory tropic freeze in 3mg which is a 70/30 vg/pg blend and got the same symptoms. So i thought about concluding that I'm developing an allergy to mint ( which Tropical freeze and Shamrock cookie had) however the grape jam from Jammonster didn't have mint. I drink about 10 to 15 bottles of 16.9oz water and my piss is clear as day so dehydration is out. I'm currently vaping on a smok v8 stick with a 0.25ohm prebuilt coil. Any thoughts before my appointment with a GI doctor? and I've been smoke free for almost 2 years. all feedback is appreciated.

    Please don't solicit medical advice here. You did the right thing by booking the appointment with a doctor.

    See your doctor.

    You may have to do an allergy elimination process with ingredients-- straight VG, straight PG, nic, nic free, etc.

    But if your throat is swelling up, you really have to do that WITH your doctor. It's almost impossible to determine what your problem is (although honestly it could be completely NOT vape related) but I can ALMOST guarantee your current thought process on it (i.e. mint) is completely flawed.
