    I am vaping for about 4 years. Not new to vaping. I have mostly vaped MTL style. I have problems with my stomach, mostly diarrhea and nausea. My juice is 90%VG.
    I can’t tolerate PG, don’t like the taste and throat irritation. So be short, is there others experience diarrhea and other digestive symptoms?
    Thank you

    Go see your gastro doctor; after you see cardiologist for your heart problem you think relates to vaping; and doctor for breathing problem posts you relate to vaping in other threads

    Or maybe you just need to find a good gerontologist

    Honestly, I really don't believe vaping is at the core of any your ailments you keep posting about :hug:

    I am seeing gastro doctor and take medicine that cost a fortune, but nothing helped. Also I had c-diff, and after I got FMT no longer. My stomach is screwed since and not getting better. My step son also developed diahrrea. He claims when he stopped vaping stopped.

    Then maybe follow your son's move and stop vaping for a couple days. See if that helps

    Almost every single prescription med lists diarrhea as a possible side affect

    As long as no one goes back to smoking -

    A lot of people blame their ailments on vaping as an excuse to go back to cigarettes

    I am not. Just looking for a solution to the problem. No way I pick up a cigarette again.

    How much nicotine are you using? Might be time to lower your level.

    That is one symptom of nicotine being too high.

    If it isnt that.. go see your doctor.. expecting a diagnoses online is like talking to Dr Phill :p

    Actually my IBS got a bit better after I started vaping.
    Take no meds for it aside from an occasional immodium.

    Vaping makes my feet stink though.
    But the rest of me smells better so all good :D

    I am not expecting any diagnosis. Just want to know if others get upset stomach from vaping high VG.
    Thank you guys.

    Short of going to the dr, which sounds like you should.. drop the nic.. see what happens.
    Perhaps you can not manage nicotine in your system

    Are you mixing or are you buying premade juice?

    So many factors.. very little explanation..

    I am mixing. And also used to buy but not much of a difference. As for doctors and pills, I have enough.

    Make sure if you use anything liquid, you shake the bottle before adding to the bottle you are putting together.
    As well as the juice you have mixed.

    It could be nicotine or flavors that upset your stomach, but that is like so rare.. Go see your Dr.

    yep

    Dr

    gastro issues/the runs are one of the first signs of heart issues. The hollywood clutching at sore chest are full of shit. Particulaly if you are sweaty and/or clammy

    are you still smoking at all? symptoms of quitting, with or without vaping include the runs or constipation. I barely pooped my first 6 months vaping

    I personally cannot say if vaping high VG causes me increased loose bowels or not since when I vape anything over 60% VG I start hacking up VG.
    I vape 50/50.

    I've vapes 80/20 since I started. Dropped to 70/30 over time for the congestion thing. Only reason I would have the stomach issues is 2 or more pots of coffee a day

    I like to vape a lot before bedtime as I'm falling asleep, and often it gives me heartburn, so I keep Prilosec beside the bed.. and that seems to fix the problem.

    I could be wrong but isn't VG a natural laxative?

    Maybe reduce your VG?

    You are correct. VG is a natural laxative.. but I only know that that is the case if you swallow some. I am not sure that vaping it would cause any problems. Hmm...

    Yes.. I am always thirsty, every single place I go I have to make a fresh drink first in my really good thermos and take it with me because I have to drink something or sip on something constantly. I am making or getting my one shot made at the same recipe as the manufacturer does, because I called them yesterday and told them I've been having some problems since I had been making it myself with concentrates and they said they were not allowed to tell me what kind of PG and VG that they use, but she said maybe to try another kind of PG. My order from nicotine River comes tomorrow, so hopefully that will be a change from what my friend has been using, if that has anything to do with it. I'm using it at a 50/50 ratio which is more than I thought that I ever had before, but I bought it for several years from the manufacturer and they did verify for me that that is the ratio they use also, which is why the girl said maybe it is the brand. I do feel dehydrated though also. Even though I drink liquids all of the time.

    Never tried the Soy VG myself and from what I have heard about it do not want to.
    Always used Palm derived VG.

    On PG I do not think there is really any difference as long as you get the USP grade.

    Smoking, on the contrary, reduces the chances of indigestion.
    Maybe try another vape liquid?
