shisha and ms

hi guys ! i was just wondering if anyone has a bad experience with shisha? I normally smoke occasionally and can handle it fine even on my medication! i went out with a friend and had a shisha to myself and a couple of sips of beer. after smoking i was a bit little headed which is to be expected but after a few minutes everything became dizzy and i couldn't walk in a straight line. then i started feel my legs and arms become very heavy and knees were giving way. i sat down immediately and drank water and was fine after. i was wondering has anyone had this experience before ? i was thinking theres a good chance that it could a relapse of a new symptom as i have RRMS but im not sure ? maybe both ? let me know what you guys think!

I don't smoke but use a vaporizer do you mean a joint with cannabis? if you do i try lots of different strains to get the right one, if you don't mean cannabis think it's better not to smoke when you have ms with all the chemicals sue


@a_girls_gotta_eat , I'm a bit out of touch so had to look the term up. And I found the following statement :- "According to research carried out by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the volume of smoke inhaled in an hour-long shisha session is estimated to be the equivalent of smoking between 100 and 200 cigarettes." (https://www.theguardian.com/society/2011/aug/22/shisha-smoking-how-bad-is-it) So, I would wager that your strange symptoms were due to what you were smoking.
