    Hi. Could be bacteria on the drip tip or mod body? My wife is an SRN and is most insistent that I sterilise both the drip tip and mod body on a daily basis.

    Also make sure that you're careful to wash off any juice that gets on your hands when filling your tank.

    Headaches are usually associated with too much nic, sore throat/nose and occasional muscle aches with PG intolerance, and acne with VG intolerance. I think in rare cases, pg can cause headaches and nausea too.
    Other things to consider are what nic level are you vaping at and in what quantities, and are you having contact with the juice via the skin or orally whilst it is still in liquid form, and, consider this too, the flavour concentrates.
    I think some thorough testing is required here.

    Yes, perhaps just try pure PG without nicotine or flavour then similarly for VG. Will probably be fairly unpleasant/bland

    Due to the level of reaction (I ain't seen it before), I'd get pros on to this, considering the commonality of both pg and vg in everyday foodstuffs and hygiene products alone, I bet such heightened sensitivity to both or either would have affected the afflicted before now.
    (Of course, things like traumas, or even other medication you may be taking, can change the way your body reacts to usually unassuming things dramatically)

    It's possible that this could all stem from an initial visit to pros in the first place...

    I dropped down from 18mg nicotine to 12mg, then to 8mg and so on but I still kept getting laid up.

    I'm OK with cough syrup that's what I can't understand.

    Like someone mentioned further up the board why didn't the symptoms start when I started vaping back in January?

    The pain I was getting from muscle aches is nothing like I've had before, it was worse than a lactic acid build up when I've been to the gym, (oh by the way I go to the gym 5 days a week and play football twice a week) so I can safely say I know my body when something is wrong.

    I'd love to get to the bottom of this because I want to get back vaping again, the price of the ciggies is killing me plus the health benefits of giving up for 7 months were phenomenal.
