Sinus inspection after poppers usage?
Hey guys! So I just started using poppers for the first time a few months ago. Of course, the first few times freaked me out because it was like an overload of sensations. However, after a few times, I started to enjoy it a bit. The worst side effect I ever experienced was a slight headache one time. However, a few weeks ago I was bored and horny as can be. I had a standard bottle of Rush and I was taking several hits over the course of one hour while enjoying some Popperbait videos on PornHub. The next day I woke up with a slightly sore throat. Over the course of a few days, I started having a cough and sinus issues. It got pretty bad to the where I was coughing up mucus and coughing through the night. After a week of rest and self-medicating with Mucinex and a cough suppressant, I finally got better.
It just seems really weird. Maybe this is completely unrelated to the poppers and I just happened to randomly get sick a few days later, but I’m not so sure. Aside from a sore throat, I couldn’t find any articles online showing that heavy poppers use can possibly lead to a sinus infection. All of my friends that I’ve talked to who use poppers don’t seem to have any idea.
Some of those popper bait videos are quite intense and suggest taking multiple hits over the course of several minutes. Maybe I just overdid it? Idk. If someone could help shed some light on this I’d really appreciate it. Thanks, guys!
Yeah, you sure overdid it. BUT sinus infections are caused by agitation/inflammation, build of mucus, and then bacteria can multiply if the sinus gets blocked. Could it be related to your popper's excess? I think the answer is a big fat YES. Your sinus gets agitated and overproduces mucus - poppers could do that.
Sinus infections are nasty and painful. Having said that you can get the same thing from a smoke-filled room, or an enclosed space with lots of dust and crap in the air. Are you a smoker?
I’m not a smoker and I’m a very healthy 36 y/o who runs and works out regularly. Thank you for shedding some light on this! Aside from not doing poppers again, maybe I should at least avoid the popperbait videos or limit myself to 20 minutes or so instead of an entire hour. I’m not gonna lie, I probably watched 3 or 4 popperbait videos over the course of an hour that night. Maybe that was a bad idea. The suggested hits in those videos can be somewhat excessive. Maybe I should just stick to regular gay porn from now on.
To be clear poppers are not causing sinus infection, rather they have the potential to create the right environment for one to develop. The point about excess and these particular videos is well observed. The sinus needs to drain properly so a sauna, or a long hot shower, helps there. Beware of those "grandma" towel over the head and a bowl of hot water remedies! That way you can actually be breathing in bacteria if everything is not spotlessly clean. I guess Mucinex is a decongestant, so if it works, all good. One tip is (if you can bear it) chew on raw garlic and inhale / exhale, or garlic / ginger tea. Both are good for flu too.
Thanks for the info guys!! That’s really helpful! I might try some of those tips later. Have a great weekend everyone!!
Yes I had the same exact problem than you KYpoppersguy. I thought it was COVID-19, but instead it was a chronic sinus infection for using poppers. I don’t use them anymore.
