Caffeine?

I had issues for years before being diagnosed hypothyroid and going gluten free and most of my issues have disappeared since but now out of no where I am having bad reactions to caffeine and chocolate; anyone else? It causes my body to itch, I have a rash of fleshy pink bumps on my arms, my bones will feel as if they are breaking, extreme fatigue, mood swings, etc...

My body can't handle coffee...but the only other issue I have with caffeine is that I can't get enough of it! I've heard of a lot of people on this board who struggle with excessive (sometimes even normal) amounts. Have you been able to pinpoint a certain product which causes a rash or is it just whenever you have any caffeine or chocolate?

I am a daily coffee drinker. I usually have about two cups in the morning and then I stop by Starbucks on my way home. It has never caused me any problems. Some of the baristas at the local Starbucks (plural) know me. ;)

Later,

When I have been glutened I think caffeine combined with gluten cause my heart to absolutely race. It is kind of scary.

Being back off gluten for at least 3 days I don't even want coffee. Before going gluten free I would drink 5 cups a day just to be able to function.

I try to keep the caffeine to a minimum. I don't drink coffee at all and do not consume any soda with caffeine although I don't drink much of it anyway because the carbonation kills my stomach. I may have unsweetened iced tea or chocolate occasionally and that's it. If I consume too much I have breast pain (I have fibrocystic changes) and my heart rate will increase.
