stomach. Caffeine is also a diuretic that triggers your body to get rid
of water, and as a result it's not a great thirst quencher.
Headaches and Migraines
caffeine can actually help to reduce headaches symptoms, but when it is
consumed in excess it can cause severe headaches. The headaches are
associated with caffeine withdrawal symptoms. When the amount of
caffeine ingested daily is unstable, it tends to cause more frequent

pronounced elevation in their blood pressure.
