NICOTINE TRANSDERMAL PATCH
Will I face breathing problems and strange sensations after quitting smoking?
When you quit smoking or chewing tobacco, certainly you will experience some new and different sensations which you will interpret as breathing problems, which they are not. These are healthy symptoms that your body is successfully adapting to the increased oxygen in your airways beginning to expel the toxins you have accumulated over your smoking years. What’s more, it’s a good indication that your heart is working less to distribute the oxygenated blood and your remedial nicotine patch use is working. Even though the sensations are perfectly normal, you should still share them with your doctor.
Air, Oxygen Distribution and Breathing
When you were consuming tobacco through smoking or chewing, the condition of your living was called Hypoxia, which means your nicotine dependence kept you in a state of low oxygen. Thinking it to be normal, your body adapted to this state. Due to more red blood cells being produced, you heart had to work harder to distribute the blood and your lungs had to work harder to bring in more oxygen. When you quite smoking by applying a nicotine skin patch, your heart and lungs will be more relaxed and enable you to breathe easy.
