Caffeine Headache Dr Winnie Lim Khoo Neurologist

  • Caffeine Withdrawal
  • Varied Caffeine consumption
  • Caffeine Overdose
  • Caffeine Sensitivity
  • Caffeine Allergy

The number one cause of a caffeine headache is caffeine withdrawal. Even a small decline (50-100mg) in the amount of caffeine a person usually consumes can result in a mild headache.

People who miss their daily dose, consume less than their average, or who are detoxing from caffeine will most likely experience this type of headache. People who consume caffeine in a hit or miss fashion tend to have more caffeine induced headaches than those that have the same amount every day.
