post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a hard time when I drink caffine. I love coffee and caffinated soda. Im okay when I drink it for about a week, then I beging to get very cranky and feel awful and am have to stop drinking it. It bums me out because I love my coffee! Its just not as fun when you have to drink de-caff Does anyone else have strange reactions to it?

I give up soda every year for lent (and every year I am so darn cranky! ) and when Easter finally rolls around and I start drinking again, I feel queasy for a while. I don't drink coffee or eat alot of chocolate so its like my system goes into shock for a bit.

But I don't know about your case. You are drinking caffine and its making you sick and cranky. Are you drinking more than normal? Could you be pregnant?

I have an aquaintance that says she is allergic to caffeine- gets really nauseaus and tired when she has it in anything- coffee, sodas, chocolate. I don't know - maybe your system can only tolerate so much??

Sorry that happens to you. I can't make it without my morning cup of joe!!

Caffeine makes me sick, too. It does suck to give it up, but I feel SO MUCH better without it!! I drink decaf coffee, but it's the flavor I enjoy not the caffeine. Plus I lost 20 pounds when I quit because I gave up soda all together. It's great for your health if you can give it up.

Yes there is an allergy to caffeine but most doctors will not acknowledge it because it does not act like a typical allergy.

It causes my daughter to get severe diarrhea and moody fits. It causes my husband to get diarrhea, moody, occassionally rage and to act bipolar. My husband got it from his mother...you should see her go from kind to moody and irrational about 30 minutes after she has a coffee. After our new little one is born I will have to give it up while nursing because I will be having another little girl and the allergy is obviously on my husbands X chromosome and it is a dominate gene so she will probably have it too....God I am going to miss my daily coffee

I cannot have coffee in the morning unless I have breakfast before I drink it. Other wise I get upset stomache, JITTERY and feel all crazy! I have had stomache problems lately, so I was told to switch to Folgers "Simply Smooth" and I couldn't believe it! IT ACTUALLY HELPED!!!! I don't get jittery or get upset stomache when I drink it! And it has caffeine.

Soda gives me diarrhea and severe cramping. I'm not sure if it's the caffeine or the carbonation.
