Smoked hookah and having strange reaction. What might be the problem ?

I have had experience smoking hookah for a long while, but recently I started getting very strange symptoms such as: Elevated heart rate , tingly/ numbness of the face and had a hard time breathing. My face would also feel very hot and swollen. It would pass after a few minutes, but only occurs when I first start smoking it and doesn t happen afterward. It s very strange. I am hoping you can suggest to me what might be the problem? Thank you.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
These are the symptoms of nicotine on your body which is quite typical. I would advise you to stay off smoking in any form as it can cause high incidence of cancer in mouth, throat, food pipe, voice box, lungs and even urinary bladder. Also it causes irreversible damage to lungs and it can cause amputation of your legs by a disease called Thrombangitis obliterans. Read up about them and you will know smoking is really very injurious to health. To stop smoking you can contact Nicotine deaddiction groups at reputed centres and consult with them.
