i,m 48 years old. started drinking coffee at 15 years of age. just loved it but over 30 years of use i'm beginning to think i'm actually allergic to it. i was diagnosed with bipolar illness 20 years ago. i have a very severe illness. one of the typical symptoms of being bipolar is feeling two different moods, depression and manic highs. i only ever get high. this is strange.
I have been drinking 12-14 cups of coffee a day but reduced it to two cups in the morning, one morming last week i did not take the 2 cupsin the morning. well, i was just so unhappy and didn't have any energy . this is not a normal feeling for me to be unhappy. i also smoke and having tryed to give this up understand what craving means. for the half hour that i never took coffee i had cravings for a half our. i did go and make a cup and after that was happy again and back cleaning my house for five hours. Would it be possable that i'm allergic to caffiene? also being bipolar i have racing thoughts however on giving up a massive amount of coffee 5 months ago these thoughts have slowed down.
Also is thier an actual allergy test for caffiene
