If this will make you feel better, I had to stop drinking coffee for a while - I can't remember if it was months or years - because I was suddenly overreacting. I made do with small amounts of coffee with large amounts of milk.

Then it went away.

I can’t have caffeine on an empty stomach. It just makes me feel off. I don’t know how people get up and immediately have coffee without eating something first. I don’t have any withdrawal symptoms if I don’t have caffeine though. I’m not always regular about having it at the same time.

When you're dependent on a certain amount of caffeine in the morning you feel off if you don't have it.

I like coffee but it never did anything for me, so no big loss...ginger is cheaper, lol.
It could have saved your life 200-300 years ago. Coffee is anti-malarial, and one reason the French didn't lose as many troops to Malaria is they were coffee drinkers, and tobacco is also anti-malarial, so if you drank coffee and smoked simultaneously you were even more protected. Insects stay clear of the coffee plant.

The British lost more troops because they were tea drinkers back then.

Yeah, apparently coffee has all kinds of purported health benefits.

BTW, I asked my husband how much coffee he drinks and he said …. 18 cups per day (where a cup is an actual measure of a cup, not just some random-sized holder of coffee). But still, wow! Apparently, he has no ill effects from this, no high blood pressure, no jitters, zero problems falling asleep. It’s pretty amazing I think …

Also, when he can’t get his coffee for some reason, he just feels “a little tired.” No other withdrawal symptoms.

He also takes his coffee black so as not to consume too many extra calories.

Toxins in Coffee: 8 Sources of Harmful Chemicals In Your Morning Brew.

So it's not just the coffee itself you have to worry about but pesticides, herbicides and more.

Perhaps you had a reaction to one of those chemicals

I think it was just the caffeine, as I have had the same reaction when I get caffeine in other forms.

Actually, what is worst for me is not the effects of the coffee/caffeine per se but the withdrawal from same.

Over the course of my life, I have gotten increasingly severe withdrawal symptoms, but the worst was about five years ago.

I was having a kombucha tea every day without realizing that it had caffeine (yes, Duh!!!!! I know how stupid that sounds). Then I simply decided to stop wasting money on kombucha tea. Lo and behold I woke up the next day with the most outrageous withdrawal symptoms — not just a massive headache, but almost non-stop vomiting that turned into drying heaving, light-headedness, tremors. I had no idea what the heck was wrong with me, but I started thinking about what I had done differently past days, thought about the kombucha and, hands trembling, did my best to make myself some emergency brew. Within 15 minutes I was feeling better and 30 minutes later I was almost normal. After this cup of coffee, I slowly weaned myself off either a teaspoon or a tablespoon less per day (forget which, but it was a very small amount).

Anyone else have caffeine sensitivity?
I usually have 11 cups of coffee (if not more), so....

No.

In the book Mosquito, it stated that insects avoid the coffee plant.

Been a coffee-drinker for a long time.

I had to start making sure I am done with my last cup by 5pm.....or I will lay in bed, wide awake, for much of the night.
