Have had a couple of tough days...

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

OK well I have been having headaches almost every day for the last 5 days or so. I have been trying to quit drinking coffee but I am doing it gradually and thought I was doing a OK job with it except I keep getting headaches. This isn't the first time I have quit drinking coffee, so I know how long I can go with out caffeine before I start get really bad migraine like headaches.

But yesterday I got up went to the gym had a good work out on the treadmill and 2-3 hours later started getting a really bad headache. I could tell it was probably gonna turn into a migraine, so I took tylenal but it didn't help so i eventually ended up drinking coffee with more tylenal and pringles to tame my stomach also. What bad combo and waste of calories...... But my headache did go away.

But I still ended up having coffee today also but only 1 . So I am back to cutting it down again. I am so tired of getting headaches and migraines. I have been getting them all my life and they really suck!!! And I have trying to quit drinking coffee, wish i could just completely stop drinking it but I cant with out getting really sick from migraines.

I didn't sleep at all last night cause of the coffee, I was up till 6 am and then finally slept for 2 -3 hours. I haven't done my workout yet today but am doing it when I get done with this blog.

Any advice or ideas to help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reading and have a great night!!

    newkana--when you say a coffee substitute, what do you mean? I would be curious to check it...

    Ya I also have a hard time sleeping when I have caffeine in my body, but I was caffeine free beginning of last year but started back up cause of college classes and too much homework ect ect.

    I have kicked the caffeine habit a while back, when I started developing really bad insomnia. I am drinking substitute coffee and I treat myself to decaf on weekends. Now you couldn't pay me enough to drink a real coffee - it's just not worth the sleepless night.

    I use caffenine to help my headaches a lot!!! I can't take ibuprofen, which is usually the only thing I can take!!!

    I have not yet tried to cut my coffee out although I should because I drink way too much of it. Friends I have that have cut out caffeine did so slowly and I know they did get headaches but not severe and eventually they didn't get them at all.
