I have developed very strange coffee allergie about 4 years ago what feels like panic attacks,
this is very strange, 3 years ago I thought I was going insane, where I would get these strange overwhelming tension around my throught I would get neck pains, I would have chest pains, difficulty breathing , my eyes would hurt , I had blurry vision and looking at light was very uncomfortable.
I also would accelerate with my speach and rapid thinking as I was going to die or something....
I had never ever before have any allergies I was always healthy, and clear minded, went to see a doc , he advised me to try to lose some weight as I was about 30 pounds overweighted,
he suggested to quit drinking pop and coffee, well I did so and slowely started feeling better,
I lost about 40 pounds as I went on a diet, well after 3 years my weight is back up but I am feeling very good, I thought that losing weight had nothing to do with the way I felt, so the other day for the first time I had a cup of coffee and in 10 minutes my symptoms of panic and all the symptoms I mentioned above came back, I was shaking and had a hard time breathing, my jaw would clunch,
I had dizziness, my heart felt like it was gonna pop out of my chest, I had tingly sensation over my arms.
Well it took about 5 hours and plenty of water to start feeling better, I figured I am allergic to caffeine or coffee, I am scheduling now an appointment with my doc for food allergies test,
can someone tell me how does the food allergie test look like,
also advice to people with panic attacks and enxiety it just maybe something as simple as the stupid coffee.
