I personally have not, but then again I don't drink a lot of coffee or soda.

Caffeine is a known irritant to the GI lining though so it's not surprising.

Yes, I had to give it up years ago. I gave up tea then too, but have recently been able to reintroduce tea.

Varies a lot for people though.

I used to have a cup of coffee everyday. Used <_<

Caffeine seems not to go well on me either, although I could have it in my first months gluten-free. Coffee, Coke, black tea, you name it.

I only drank caffeinated drinks before going gluten-free. Coffee all morning and then sweet tea all day, followed by coffee in the evening after dinner, then tea until bedtime. When I went gluten-free I also eliminated coffee and tea. I was strictly drinking water, Lactaid milk and OJ. After 2 weeks or so I reintroduced caffeine, but I only allow myself one cup of coffee per day. I do not drink sweet tea (damaging to my teeth was the main reason I quit that one) so the only other caffeine I may get is from soda, but only then when I eat out.

Here's the interesting part. I do not know what was causing my headaches. I had them every single day for many years. I lived on ibuprofen. What I do not know is if the caffeine had me on the edge of dehydration all the time (was constantly thirsty) or if the celiac (or celiac/caffeine combo) was the cause. Whichever it is, I am not going back to full caffeine because I have had one migraine and zero regular headaches since going gluten-free. And the migraine was noise induced by the flooring guys installing hardwood flooring in my house. So I think I've really had zero headaches in 2 months. That's never happened in my entire life.

Long answer, but caffeine can cause bad stuff in some people, depending on how much is consumed, so trying elimination may answer any concerns you may have about whether it's having any effect on you.

Wow SMDBill, that's fantastic.

I know some people are really sad (by which I probably mean resistant!) to dropping coffee. It is so long for me I dont really remember. I hope hearing your experience persuades some people to try it.
