    I’ve always drank coffee and have taken high doses of caffeine(preworkout) and always gave me regular caffeine uplifting feeling. Recently if I just drink a cup of coffee I get really bad anxiety. Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

    Some common causes of caffeine intolerance might include:
    1. Low blood sugar
    2. High adrenaline
    3. Decreased liver function
    4. Increased sympathetic CNS activity, possibly from too much dietary protein or tyrosine.
    5. General dehydration/low sodium

    Do you normally sweeten your coffee?
