Coffee Consumption Questions

984176_51765691Reading this list of questions what are the chances that coffee contributes greatly to all my ills?

  • Do you consume more than two cups of coffee in a day? Yes. (Not any more)
  • Do you feel fatigued on and off during the day? Yes.
  • Do you suffer from constipation or are you dependent on tea or coffee in the morning for clearing your bowels? - Not exactly, but it seems to be the morning trigger
  • Do you suffer from acidity or heartburn? Sometimes.
  • Do you feel a generalized pain in the neck, shoulders and back region and a sensation of discomfort in the legs, hands and stomach? Yes.
  • Do you suffer from burning, fatigue and heaviness in the eyes? Yes.
  • Do you have difficulty in going to sleep? Often.
  • Do you wake up in the morning feeling dead tired? Yes.
  • Are you easily irritable? Yeah, so what of it?
  • Do you suffer from irregular or rapid heartbeats? Oh dear
  • Do you often feel dizzy? That would be another affirmative.
  • Do you have problems concentrating without a cup of coffee? Yep.  
  • Do your hands tremor? On occasion!
  • Do you feel dehydrated? At times I have an unquenchable thirst.

That would appear to be at least 12 out of 14 and a score of just 7 yeses looks like the recommendation point when, "Removal of products laced with caffeine from your diet will improve your health considerably." Nooooo, please, I've actually halved my consumption of coffee already, but surely I'm allowed a little slack, because I've given up everything else.
