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 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 Iím not so sure. Aside from a sore throat, I couldnít find any articles online showing that heavy poppers use can possibly lead to a sinus infection. All of my friends that Iíve talked to who use poppers donít seem to have any idea.

Some of those popperbait 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 Iíd 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 poppers 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 a enclosed space with lots of dust and crap in the air. Are you a smoker?

Iím not a smoker and Iím 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. Iím 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.

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 donít use them anymore.

I definitely feel like there are negative side effects with using poppers. I really trying to stop using them all together.

I get major headaches the next day in my sinuses. Now I inhale through mouth. Tastes weird but it works better

I've had sinus issues for over 2 months after a long night of poppers. The poppers where older, I had kept them in the freezer. It's been a little over a month since my last popper binge and I'm still stuffed up. I will never touch poppers again. Will the stuffiness ever go away.?!!

Forgot to mention I've had a persistent cough now for a little over 2 months and if I try I still cough up greenish mucus. This is driving me crazy. I had a chest x-ray that the doc said was normal, blood work is fine. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. BTW, all poppers where bought in US.

Iíve also had a sinus issue for about six weeks since doing poppers. It was just for a few minutes and the issue didnít start until a few days later. Also thought it was Covid. Never gets as bad as youíre describing, but on again off again sore throat and post nasal drip. Dr has me doing nasal flush and Flonase to treat the irritation. Did not occur to me until tonight that the poppers might be the cause.

I believe it's the poppers. In the 10+ years of doing poppers off and on I've never had an issue last this long. I believe your immune system reacts and the mucus membranes in your sinuses swell. It's now been 2 months since I've used poppers and the healing process is slow. I did have really low vitamin D and now I'm taking supplements. Supposedly there is a link from Vitamin D deficiency and sinus and asthma issues. The anxiety it can bring on gets intense at times as well.

thank goodness for this guide. I definitely think there is a link. I've been using a year old bottle of "English Pentyl" which still works absolutely fine but I've also had the worst blocked and stuffy nose for well over a month now. I've stayed clear of poppers for about 3 weeks now to try and relieve symptoms. I'm off to my GP this morning. when this is cleared up I will replace my bottle more frequently or I might go back to the older formula which would occasionally gave me a prolonged cough.. I think I would rather have the cough than this nasal blockage.

if you have a bottle that has been open for more than a month, i would recommend trowing it out. it is chemicals, yes but also if you intend to inhale, it's something you are putting into your body, Is there any food you would eat after a month? i have been a regular user for 15+ years, the only time i have had problems with sinuses or getting sick afterwards, are from old stale poppers.
