Default Caffeine intolerance

Hi ALL,

I just wanted to pass on some info ...

http://health.howstuffworks.com/well...l/caffeine.htm

FYI ... MOST articles state that only caffeine in large doses is a problem but for anyone with caffeine intolerance, all you need is one sip to get the affects.

IMHO, this is very important info for anyone with neurological problems.

BUT ... If you google adenosine or dopamine you'll see how these affects our bodies.

Of course, the other problems caffeine causes are important too. In fact, caffeine was causing the blood vessels in my neck / head region to constict not allowing blood to get to my head as freely ... Now when I lay down due to orthostatic intolerance (OI), the blood doesn't rush into my head ...

FYI. If you decide to eliminate caffeine from your diet, be sure to go very very very very slowly. It's a drug and should be treated like one ...

Caffeine also causes our cells to drop calcium. Most of the articles I found on this stated that the amount of caffeine was insignificant ... BUT some other articles I found stated that it was WHERE the calcium is dropped that's important. Googling caffeine calcium will get these articles.

HTH ... Marcia

PS. The Paleo / low carb / low oxalate diet helped me tremendously. Most of my disabling ME/CFS symptoms, like ataxia, brain fog and myoclonus, are gone or under control via diet. But caffeine may have been causing my orthostatic intolerance and some, if not all of my CFS fatigue. I've been caffeine free since April 10, 2011 and have already noticed some improvements but only time will tell ...
