Cyanide1314763dIf the headache is too frequent, better get it checked?
Coffee don't work on me , but matcha 🍵 works on me.
sariel268863dCaffeine is a stimulant and can act as a kind of cardiovascular inhibitor(meaning your blood vessels in your brain will reduce in size to pump more blood to areas faster.
This is why a high intake of caffeine causes high blood pressure and prolonged heavy use can eventually lead to permanent damage.
I would slowly ween yourself off so much coffee and see how your headaches do then.
Also be sure to compensate with an extra hour or so of sleep.
Even though I drink a reasonable amount, I have withdrawal symptoms (a headache) if I don't get my daily dose of coffee. The quality doesn't matter for me.
TrevorTheRat50062dYup. Need my fix
Nanos1113562dThat's a habit..
Slowly reduce your coffee intake over many weeks/months to wean yourself off.
Meanwhile, eating ginger can help.
But not too much, or you get the runs !
Yup, sign of addiction.
Most people will start getting headaches when going cold turkey from 4+ cups per day. Threshold amount and time to withdrawal vary per person of course.
I also can't fall sleep without coffee, like a double espresso right before bedtime. Without coffee I'm wide awake, feeling twitchy and restless. With coffee I'm alert but calm enough to fall asleep.
Probably not healthy but I already phased down from a quarter gram of methamphetamine -> 100-200mg dextroamphetamine-> 10+ red bull -> 5-6 coffee per day.
So I'm probably gonna die sleeping in my reclining chair at 55 years old with a mug full of espresso in my lap.
I'm exaggerating a little for effect. I don't always get headaches, and I don't always drink coffee. But I find if I have a headache for whatever reason, coffee seems to numb it, when sleeping doesn't always do the trick.
I think it's like the chocolate effect. It releases endorphins making me feel happier which usually brings down tension in my body.
