Caffeine Intolerance

  1. 0
    Has anyone ever experienced Caffeine Intolerance? I think I am experiencing this now. I drank half a cup of coffee this morning and after drinking it I felt shortness of breath, very anxious, and urgency to urinate. Just wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else on here.

    I wouldn't call it caffeine intolerance. Those syptoms can be the normal side effects of caffeine.You may be extra sensitive to it.

    Yes it has. The doctor has told me to cut back on caffeine and I have. But I think I am just going to have to cut it out completely. I haven't had any in over 24 hours and I do not have any of those symptoms anymore.

    Yes, I've known several die-hard coffee drinkers who suddenly experienced a major change in their response to caffeine as a result of a new med or after quitting smoking.

    I drink enough coffee as it is, but I actually used to drink a lot more when I was in nursing school. I had to cut back because I was experiencing palpitations and I could FEEL my cardiac output drop - I was very dizzy!

    I've determined that as I age, I am more sensitive to coffee. Used to drink a pot, now one cup it the limit- and any caffeine past noon keeps me awake that night. Weird. When I worked 3-11 I drank coffee for 8 hours and slept like a baby.
