Hi, I am a 16 year old male, weighing 82

Patient: Hi, I am a 16 year old male, weighing 82 kilogrammes and have a height of 172 cm. I am a little bit overweight but not a lot. I smoke cigarettes about 4 times a week socially. This evening I had half a “roll your own” and about a quarter of a Taylor made. After about 10 minutes I felt dizzy and extremely nauseous. This lasted for about two hours. I have never had these symptoms in previous smoking situations. An answer to this question would be much obliged.

However, in case they persist you would require to get your BP checked and a clinical examination done to rule out any evidence of Stroke.I would sincerely advise you to quit smoking, else it eventually kills.Stay Healthy.
