Cappuccino allergy????

I really love cappuccino because it's so yummy, the combination of coffee, milk and sugar in cold ice really makes my mouth water but everytime and i mean every time i drink one, after a few minutes like 10 to 15 minutes from drinking it. I really get these same reactions from my body. headache, dizziness, lightheaded, the general feeling of body weakness, body malaise and sometimes if it gets really worse i'd get palpitations. it's really not a good feeling. after the great drink comes the great consequence of all the symptoms. I just don't get it why I experience this. and also i only experience this when the drink is cold. My friends don't have the same reaction as I do when I drink cappuccino so I'm wondering if this is a form of allergy? does anybody know what this is? food intolerance or whatever.

Hi
The palpitation you get are probably from the caffeine. The headaches though  could be  a symptom of milk intolerance . I get headaches if I drink milk. Thats why I had to swich to soya milk
