If I have coffee I'd walk into walls
more than I normally do.

That is really interesting, wow!AspieChris I still drink real coffee (brewed) for my asthma from time to time, there is a chemical property in caffine and chocolate that acts like theophylline (think that's the right one) which helps open airways if I'm not around my meds and have an attack it can and does help for me.
A woman was drinking 6 coffees per day, eventually she got stomach ulcer. It is very acidic and it is not allowed in my diet due to my gastric problems.Acid reflux was a problem for me, also.

Having that morning cup of coffee or a soda with lunch can be a stim also. It’s not always just about the caffeine. For me, having a soda in my hand became a way of ‘self-soothing’.
It’s a bad habit that I have been trying to break.
It can't. Not unless you're drinking something you really shouldn't.I didn't know acidity could cause ulcers
I have heard caffeine helps some ppl who have ADHD.Having ADHD, caffeine has a calming effect on me overall; the opposite of people without ADHD.
That's true, but technically, the acid in the stomach can corrode the lining.It can't. Not unless you're drinking something you really shouldn't.
What causes stomach ulcers?The most common causes of stomach ulcers are:
People are more at risk of developing a stomach ulcer if they smoke or drink alcohol, or have a family history of ulcer disease.
- Helicobacter pylori — a type of bacteria
- non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin and ibuprofen
Spicy foods do not cause stomach ulcers, but they can worsen the symptoms.
Stomach ulcers occur in the lining of your stomach. Although they are common and can be treated, it’s important to be aware of the symptoms and get diagnosed early.www.healthdirect.gov.au
Apparently green coffee, due to its processing mode, has the opposite effect on BP.I reserve it for special occasions, like having to drive all night. It ruins my shaky grip on maintaining a circadian rhythm, and costs a withdrawal/makeup rest that is hard to get to.
A friend of mine without medical insurance noticed that his heart was skipping a lot of beats. He started reading the literature on heart problems, and didn't understand a lot of the words. One that he did recognize came up frequently, though - caffeine. He was drinking about six cups a day from a vending machine, and quit that. Soon his heart was steady again.
I'm the same way. It's so strange. A cup of coffee, or a can of coke, or even a caffeine candy, and I'm literally shaking.I might as well do meth. Caffeine is just terrible. Years ago I ate some caffeine pills, didn't think much about it because it was just caffeine. Huge mistake. Never doing that again. One cup of coffee and I can't think or sit still or function like a somewhat normal human being.
