I am allergic to caffeine.

 I only have a few but they are clearly too irritating for me to consume caffeine and enjoy caffeine. The only ones that I don't experience are the flu like symptoms, the swollen eyes, my tongue doesn't swell and no cold sweats. The rest bugs me for the rest of the day, and the next morning I feel hung over! Big time hate caffeine. Found this out after quitting caffeine for months then sipped it daily and increased it. Symptoms increased and before long I hated what I was drinking.

 

 

Here are all symptoms possible for people with caffeine allergy.

  1. Skin problems such as hives, eczema, rashes, acne, severe itching
  2. Headaches/ migraines
  3. Anxiety and panic attacks
  4. Can’t focus or concentrate
  5. Tongue, glands, or throat swelling
  6. Heart racing/ palpitations
  7. Angry, irritable, bad mood
  8. Fatigue
  9. Dizziness
  10. Extreme jitters
  11. Chest Pain
  12. Depression
  13. Numbness in face, hands, or feet
  14. Muscle pain
  15. Shortness of breath/ tightness of chest
  16. Delusions/ hallucinations
  17. Flu/ cold like symptoms
  18. Vision problems
  19. Cold sweats
  20. Eyes swollen shut

So...now I want chocolate.....it's that time of the month again. But...the caffeine!!! lol Noooooo!

So I'm looking for a certified gluten free carob instead. Or I'll have to encourage my liver to produce the caffeine enzymes that it isn't. There's a whole new study.

I think I just found my own answer?

Is the only certified Gluten Free carob I have found so far.

 

Am a super celiac. And caffeine is my nemesis. :( But I will try this company.

These carob chips are produced in a dedicated gluten-free facility.

ETA: I just read elsewhere that their facility does not handle wheat, but is not certified gluten free.
