I've discovered something over the last week. I have a caffeine addiction that I didn't have before.
I have been using Excedrin more often and drinking Coke more. What I discovered that as long as I had some form of caffeine, I could keep that aching nagging feeling in the back of my neck away. It's that feeling that if I don't do something about it soon, I know where this is headed. I used to take three Aleve or four Ibprofen. The Aleve would work and if I was closer to a migraine, I'd throw Benadryl in, but if I was too far into it, I'd need my Imitrex.
Well, as long as I can drink a 20 oz Coke or take one Excedrin, I don't need the Aleve. To be honest, the Ibprofen never did anything anyway.
I'm not sure if I should keep up the caffeine or not. I know in some people it can cause headaches too. Maybe soon my system will get used to it and it'll start causing them. But for many, a cup of coffee a day is just fine for them. I think I might try a half of an Excedrin and see what that does. I do get a tad jittery, but not enough to interfere with what I'm doing.
