What is Caffeine Withdrawal?
If you regularly drink a lot of coffee and/or tea and suddenly stop drinking it at any time, for any reason, you may experience a series of symptoms due to caffeine withdrawal. Caffeine is a natural stimulant most commonly found in tea and coffee, which affects the central nervous system to varying degrees.
Symptoms of caffeine withdrawal
Caffeine withdrawal symptoms can include:
· A headache that usually starts behind the eyes and then moves to the front of the head
· Extreme tiredness
· Heart rhythm abnormalities
· Lack of concentration
· Muscle pain, cramp
· Flu-like symptoms
· Feeling sick or vomiting
· Brain fog
It is possible to avoid caffeine withdrawal by gradually changing the way you drink coffee or tea over a period of about 2-3 weeks, by alternating with decaffeinated coffee or tea until you’ve tapered off regular coffee or tea completely.
