Does Drinking Coffee Cause Headaches?

Why do I feel strange when I have coffee?

People with sensitivity to caffeine suffer from an intense rush to adrenaline when consumed. 

Often triggers an intense excitement and a rising level of adrenaline in those who are not used to it. The effect of drinking just a few sips of coffee may seem to be that of having had five or six cups of espresso.

Caffeine narrows the blood vessels around the brain, blood vessels are enlarged when consumption is stopped. This increases the blood circulation around the brain and surrounding nerves. It can lead to so-called caffeine headache withdrawal.

It is common for people to wonder whether caffeine can treat or cause headaches. Caffeine has both stimulating and sleep-inducing effects. Caffeine can be beneficial in alleviating the symptoms of a headache.

When one begins to restrict their consumption of caffeine, they're likely to experience what is known as a caffeine withdrawal.

Because of the length of time required for the body to become dependent on not having caffeine in the system, people may have several weeks of withdrawal headaches.

It is critical that you pay attention to the amount of caffeine you consume and how it affects you. Identify what helps or hinders your headaches and make note of the occasions that you experience this occurs.

Until we learn more, a good idea is to listen to your body. Therefore, if you have headaches, you should try to limit your caffeine intake and consume it in moderation.

Coffee is generally considered to be safe!
