Caffeine and Alcohol

Posts: 243

Does caffeine and alcohol make fibro worse? I had to cut down to one small cup of coffee because I swear I feel worse after I drink caffeine. And I love my coffee especially becase I feel tired so often. I also notice that if I even have one beer it makes things worse. This never happened to me before and now I am notcing these changes.

I feel better after both. But a lot of people that I've talked to who have CFS said it makes them worse.

I feel better after my cup of coffee in the morning. And then i usually have about 1/2 bottle of Diet Coke at lunch. After that all non caff. drinks. I am trying to drink more water. It is not going well, cause I dont like water... I know I know it has no taste. But I dont like it. LOL

mamanordy, I agree with you about the water, I think it does taste funny. I drink coffee, and don't notice any efect it has on me, maybe that's what keeps me from going to sleep at school.Whistling Grin
