Question: I have had roughly five hours of sex and sniffed on poppers a couple of times during that time. It was my second time (trying poppers) and I wasn't aware of the drug or its side effects. It has been 48 hours almost and I'm unable to sleep right. Barely sleep like an hour or so. Last morning, right after the whole night of sex and poppers, I had vomiting sensations, heavy breathing, dizziness, extreme body pain (sore feeling in every muscle). Everything is fine now to an extent, but I'm unable to sleep. Please advise what can I do to get over the weakness and sleep normally. Thanks.

Brief Answer: Possible side effects of inhaling poppers... Detailed Answer: Hi, What you are experiencing is related to the common side effects of sniffing on poppers. So, I'd suggest to keep away from using poppers, drink plenty of water, take chamomile tea (a couple of cups) and get physically involved (work or exercise). At the moment, this is all you can do until the effect of poppers will go and you can assume you normal sleeping. Hope it helped.

I had bladder surgery on Tuesday. I am a 44 year old female weighing 250 pounds, am confined to a wheelchair and my ms has been spiralling downward throughout the summer. After surgery, when the anesthesiologist removed the breathing tube, I began having severe chest spasms and breathing problems. He said that if he could not get them under control, they would have to keep me in the hospital. They were able to give me muscle relaxers and valium by IV which worked, after giving me pills which did not work. Early this afternoon, I began wheezing, and it has gradually gotten worse. What could be going on?
