    Re: Caffeine & Headaches

    Every once in awhile I like to clear the caffeine out of my system & remember what it feels like to be caffeine free. I drink coffee, especially espresso, for the taste & consider caffeine an unfortunate side effect I could easily live without. It's also fun to from start from scratch again without the tolerance you build up over time.

    Yeah caffeine reduces cerebral blood flow up to 32% with dose of 250mg. Caffeine and human cerebral blood flow: a positron... [Life Sci. 1990] - PubMed result So if withdrawal hits in, blood rushes to the brain and causes headaches. That is the same with alcohol consumption and hangover. I have read that aspirin reduces blood flow to the brain too.

    Btw new forum outlook is great. Finally i can stay logged in all the time.

    I have found coffee to be at the least, a contributing cause of headaches for me, if I over endulge, and that means more than two double espressos in the morning, every morning.

    I am usually fine on two or even three single shots per morning without any headaches, but more than this on a regular basis and the headaches will start soone or later.
    To get rid of the headaches entirely I have discovered I need to go cold turkey for 10 days at least and two weeks is better. After going without for 24 hours I will have a severe headache for a day or so, like my head is going to split, then it will calm down to a slight ache for a day or two, then after this all headaches are gone entirely, but I need to stay off the stuff for another week at least, seemingly to "clear" my system.

    I have a sedentary job and I believe this also plays a role.
    I also accept there are many theories about coffee and headaches and self diagnoisis is a human tendency however I have proven my own theory time and again over many years and I would rather "manage" my coffee drinking with moderation than give up entirely.

    This is actually what i've always heard, that caffeine opens up the blood vessels, which helps out. Correct me if I'm wrong...I might just associate with liars..hahaha!

Since they don't know for sure what causes migraines, I guess it's inconclusive - you'd think the caffeine would open the blood vessels and alleviate the headache. The brain is a scary machine!

    Wow...a lot of these posts sound exactly like my lifestyle regarding caffeine. I have to have 2 cups in the morning, by 630am at the latest. The amazing thing is, if just a few minutes go by past that time without me getting my coffee, the headache starts to set in. Once it starts it's almost guaranteed it'll last most of the day, even if I do eventually drink coffee afterwards. These kinds of headaches are some of the most powerful I've ever had (I also get hunger and eye-strain headaches). It feels like what a migraine might be described as...not pleasant.
