i just did some reading on the internet, it says that it is quite common for many ppl to experience headache after drinking kopi, so i dun think we're abnormal or wat. also, when we drink alcohol and haf hangovers the next morning, drinking kopi in excess causes dehydration as well, which will worsen the headache. so i think the solution is to dilute the kopi, or drink some water b4 drinking kopi on empty stomach. hope it helps, im going to test out tmr when i start my day, hehe..
tried and tested this morning: downed 1 cup of water, ate bread, then kopi. no headache. when i was younger and burned midnite oil, i drank like 3-4 cups a nite n din haf headache, so i reckon that its got to do with the empty stomach thing..
hi ladies... u can try drinking decaf and u'll know if caffeine is the real culprit... or try switching a brand of coffee powder... it may well be some other ingredients of that particular brand that caused the symptoms... most of those sounds pretty common coffee-related ones.. but dizziness seems rather weird.. juz my 2 cent worth..
when i first started drinking coffee, i only tried Nescafe. And without fail, a headache will follow.
At times, when i drink other brands like starbucks, etc, occasionally, do get a headache followed by a neausea feeling. so i presume at that time, that i cannot take 'strong' coffee.
However, sometime later, (becos of work) i started drinking coffee again. This time no no nescafe for me. I had the kopi-o from my canteen and suprisingly, i like it very much and no headache...
as i drank more,everyday, i would get a headache if i dun drink...
so the conclusion i drew is you've got to switch brand to try if you are sensitive to some ingredients in that brand( like i am to nescafe).
Soon, you'll love coffee and cannot live without it(like i am now)
At times, when i drink more cups per day without my regular plain water, i'll get the heart palpitation symtoms as well. so i think its really becos of dehydration.
actually coffee/ tea is a diuretic -- means it makes you go toilet more often... ur body gets rid of the water, that's why u feel dehydrated.
hehe, some ppl get headache after drinking, some get headache if don't drink... quite interesting.
i think getting a headache cos of NOT drinking is a common "withdrawal" symptom... i know a few ppl who have this symptom.
my hands will shake also. feel anxious, heart beat fast, feel almost like "high". too bad ice-blended mocha taste soooo good, cannot resist!stomachache if drink in the morning. very strange hor. the good thing is, if i really need to wake up, i know coffee confirm will work!
Hi everyone, I'm a new member, this whole forum thingy is very new to me. So, guide me wherever possible. I thought there is something wrong with me when I feel drugged after taking coffee. My head feel light and feel like vomitting. I only take coffee as a wake up call when I'm extremely sleepy in office. I feel coffee gives bad breath.
I try to drink less coffee and tea nowadays and switch more to fruit juices..
I tried drinking instant packet milo (was in a huge satchet with lots of cocoa powder) and 2 pimples blew up on my face! Was terribly the pimple almost scarred me..I feel the milo packet could fill up 2 coffee cups instead of 1 which is too thick.
wow...i am suprise that coffee has such effects on some people..
for me, i need a cup of coffee every morning..and my day won't complete without it. think i am addited to coffee. so i control my intake to one cup per day.
We have a coffee house chain in Canada called Tim Horton's. If I drink a couple cups of their coffee, I experience the symptoms which you describe above.
I can drink coffee at home all day and never experience these effects, but 2 cups of their stuff and I feel like my heart is going to jump through my chest. It's like drinking liquid cocaine. (serious!)
Tim Horton's has been accused on several occasions of spiking their coffee with addictive substances (such as nicotine) but independent studies have proven this to be false.
They definitely do something to it. Hyper-caffeinated somehow? Perhaps...
All teas, including green and oolong naturally contain caffeine. However the levels of caffeine in coffee are significantly higher than teas - so that could be contributing to the problems that you're experiencing. However coffees also contain oils and acids that are problematic to a lot of people's digestive systems. Congratulations on identifying one source that is causing your health distress. The solution is easy - avoid it completely.
