My doctor has been trying to get me to stop drinking Diet Mt. Dew for a while now. I've konwn all along how bad it has been for me and I was drinking an insane ammount of it to try to stay alert at work (to no avail).
Last week I had a serious bout with the flu Tuesday and Wednesday. I decided to stop cold turkey since tapering off has proven unsuccessful on several occasions. I've been drinking some kind of caffinated beverage since childhood. The headache lasted 2 days (Tuesday and Wednesday). Thursday, I felt like I was still recovering from the flu: Tired, lethargic, slightly achy with a slight headache. The muscular achiness has gone bbut I still have no energy or alertness and a have a constant dim headache.
Has anybody else decaffinated and experienced the effects? I'm hoping to hear somebody else's experiences to compare to my own. Thanks!
