jewellight:  Sounds normal to me! If I don’t have coffee for a long time, one cup can make me so jittery I feel sick. Especially if I have coffee on an empty stomach.

I use to get really bad stomach cramps after drinking it, but I enjoyed it so much that I kept at it and that never happens anymore. But the jittery thing definitely happens.

Are you drinking brewed coffee or espresso? If you’re drinking espresso you should try just brewed coffee. Also, light roasts like blonde roast have more caffeine than a medium roast, so make sure you’re drinking the right coffee for you.

If you are getting coffee from a coffee shop like Starbucks, you can get any drink made with brewed coffee, just ask the Barista!

Makes my anxiety worse and gives me a stomach ache! I can’t really take too much of it. I can order a decaf at Starbucks and be fine (they even do decaf espresso drinks and lattes)…I know that still has caffeine but not as much so it doesn’t bother me much. Also helps if I eat something before/with it.

I feel like coffee caffiene and tea caffiene affect me differently.

I CANNOT drink coffee. For one I do not enjoy the taste, and I get severe anxiety, it upsets my stomach and Too Much Information TMI Too Much Information TMI I get the shits.

Tea on the other hand, I can have a cup here and there, but anything more than a cup (of black tea) every 4 hours makes me feel like ass as well. 

I tend to stick with herbals/rooibos as this is what I find comforting.

jewellight:  Definitely a thing. Even the caffeine in a couple cups of tea can make me feel sick, so I usually stick to one cup in the morning and maybe one cup during the afternoon lull. Unless you’re really sensitive, a cup of holiday cheer shouldn’t bother you too much. If you want to imbibe, try having your caffinated holiday drink with food, or just get the decaf version. Being sensitive to caffeine hasn’t affected my life in any drastic way, so don’t worry – you can still enjoy your favorites! 🙂

My mom was actually diagnosed as having developed an allergy to caffeine in her mid-30s after having been a coffee drinker all her life. She began having severe anxiety attacks, heart palpations, and even a few fainting spells which led her to seek medical attention. She switched to decaf and was totally fine. The doctor said the caffeine was screwing up her body’s adrenaline production and sending it spiraling into hyperdrive.

I pray this never happens to me because I’m a serious caffeine addict and could easily wear a caffeine pump the way some diabetics wear an insulin pump, lol.

I drink green tea. Have been for the past year. Thought I could handle caffine better, had a machiato on thanksgiving day around 2pm and I couldn’t sleep all night. Ended up with 2 hours of sleep before work. And it makes me get the shits…. so yeah i think there’s such a thing as caffine intolerance… Not to mention my heart races and pounds.
