Cafffiene withdrawl(withdrawal) neuropathy???

I overdosed on 300 mg at caffeine at once in February and have been having strange symptoms ever since.  Ever since then I have numbness, tingling, burning, pins and needles (paresthesias) after cutting out caffeineI have chronic low back pain, weakness, myoclonic jerks, body aches, and etc. Overall just a lot of pain. I am so confused because caffeine usually doesn't cause this. I strongly believe adrenal exhaustion might be the cause of all my problems. Its just too hard for me to believe that this is all withdrawal. Another thing I noticed is that all my symptoms are IDENTICAL to those who withdraw from benzos (check out ************). Caffeine can actually inhibit GABA transmission in large doses which can cause symptoms identical to benzo withdrawal. I The last theories I have is that caffeine withdrawal can leave the nerves inflamed or perhaps muscles tight causing these symptoms. I too thought of b12 deficiency but it doesnt make sense, my nerve pain started I kid u not the next day after I took caffeine. Also, the shooting electric pain I got was all over. B 12 deficiency nerve problems start slowly, they are not that acute. I dont know for sure. I must be extremely sensitive to caffeine but I have stopped intake, what is going on with my body? I am honestly so scared. I am getting an EMG/NCS of my extremeties.
