There is a point when coffee consumption becomes dangerous but the average person would have to drink tons of coffee to have a serious effect of the life. How to tell if you are overdoing it and drink way too much coffee:
- Develop insomnia: overloading on coffee can keep you up at night even if you only have one cup and it was in the morning but everyone’s tolerance to caffeine is different.
- Worsening Anxiety: coffee can trigger a “fight or flight” adrenaline hormone. It can make you feel extremely energized but also anxious.
- Dehydration: drinking too much coffee can make you feel dehydrated. Coffee is not a substitute for water, so make sure you are drinking the required amount of water per day. If you don’t drink enough water and rely of coffee you will get dehydrated.
- Stomach pains: Coffee has been connected with gastrointestinal distress especially acid reflux. If your stock hurts after your cup of coffee it might be a sign to cut back.
- Experience headaches: must people don’t experience headaches while drinking coffee but once they stop or skip a cup, they can get a nasty headache.
- Increasing blood pressure: caffeine stimulates the nervous system, which can increase your blood pressure if you drink too much of it. If you now have a sudden spike in blood pressure when you didn’t have issues with hypertension in the past maybe you have coffee to blame.
If you experience any or all of the symptoms above when drinking coffee then maybe you should cut back on how much you drink it or just eliminate it in general.
