I have a mild headache earlier and was checking why could I suffer for headache every now and then. Could it be my migraine again or my eyes? Upon searching and of course asking my husband about it, he told me the possible reason could be "Caffeine Withdrawal". I didn't know about this till I found out myself that it could be the positive reason. I tried drinking juice yesterday morning so I can cut down coffee intake. But sadly, I can't just stop it instantly. If you're like me who likes a hot coffee most of the time ( especially now that is officially Autumn), here are the symptoms:
Sadly, I felt all these symptoms. So I go back making a cup of coffee again this morning after the heachache attack and it goes away without even taking paracetamol or Ibufropen.
I also found out that excessive intake of caffeine has even more side effects. I only take coffee about 1 - 2 cups a day. But I remembered Jamie when he was in the Philippines taking more than 10 cups of coffee a day. Flippin' Heck! That's what you say excessive intake. 3 cups of coffee is considered moderate dose but more than that is too much! Check the following effects of excessive caffeine intake:
Be cautious! Taking tea or hot chocolate doesn't mean that these drinks are free from caffeine. They have less caffeine but not completely free of it. So if you want to cut down taking too much caffeine, do it slowly by cutting it by half cup of tea a day or use herbal tea as alternatives.
