Caffeine Overload/withdrawl

I used to drink coffee often, but haven't really drank any all summer. I am at school now and I brewed a pot today. I probably had 5 or so cups. For the last 5 hours I have had the jitters and its driving me insane. I have been drinking water nonstop so I THINK it is gone. But I am not sure if water actually does anything. I have tried to relax and take a nap but its not working out. Should I go drink a mountain dew or something with a little less caffeine and wean myself off? Or do I need to go take a run or something?

I have never had the jitters before and I used to drink just as much. Maybe I just got a really efficient coffee maker?

HELP!

If you feel so ill, why not call your Dr., or your student health center for advice?

No need to wait for a car forum to help you.

I thought of that too, but the health center here has some crazy hours. They are only open til 1 on saturday.

I decided to sip on some mountain dew and its helping some. I didnt know you could possibly have a withdrawal after one "overload".

Re: Caffeine Overload/withdrawl

Mountain Dew is pretty heavy with caffeine if I remember correctly (I don't drink the stuff). I would venture to guess since you drank very little, to no caffeine over the summer, your body is not used to the 5 cups you drank today.

Perhaps try cutting down on the caffeine intake again. I never drank it much and I found I never really needed to in college.

5 cups after having none for a while? not good news. Either visit the clinic or wait it out. No soda, especially Mountain Dew, loads of caffeine. Keep drinking lots of water.

Yeah. I stopped the mountain dew halfway through. I just went for a run and took my 3rd hot shower today. Much better now, still a little shaky though.

LOL 5 cups? Why? Either way just don't drink anymore caffiene..it'll go away. We got a call once (I'm an EMT) for a kid in CVS w/ hypertension. He went on the self BP machine and his BP was like 180/90 (Pretty high but not TERRIBLE). Anyway turned out he had two red bulls, coffee, drank last night, etc. We wanted to go to the ER...
