I just everybody to know that I cut out all caffeine about a year ago, and I went a whole year without an attack..I finally started getting them again last week when i quit drinking, but now i am doing good again..I think I was allergic to cofffee or something, because I was always having palputations, and I felt outside of me own body all the time..and chest pains..
Caffeine can definitely increase your anxiety and cause palpatations. Many doctors will advise people with anxiety and panic to decrease or cease caffeine consumption to help. Caffeine is a drug and you can build up a tolerance to it fairly quickly. It is a stimulant and you can have stomach cramps, inability to concentrate, headaches, etc while you quit, but I agree once you are off of it, it really does help with anxiety although I need it to get up in the morning :).
