Caffeine: Cup of Pain, Liquid Stress
I've seen a very strong correlation between caffeine use & pain. Caffeine makes every muscle in your body tighter, including the involuntary muscles in the internal organs. If a massage therapy client stops or starts using caffeine, I can feel a difference in their body: more muscle tension with caffeine. Increased muscle tension leads to pain.

Caffeine & Chronic Pain
Getting off caffeine can reduce your pain, and sometimes eliminates pain. Cutting down from a lot to a little helps, going from a little to nothing helps even more. Many people are sensitive enough to caffeine that a small amount makes a big difference in their pain and tension. Green tea or chocolate are enough to cause pain for many people. The only way to find out what effect caffeine has on you is to stop using it.

Coffee and Inflammation
AJCN.org WEBMD.com Moderate-to-high coffee consumption (>1 cup/day) increases markers of inflammation. Inflammation causes pain. Inflammation from coffee might cause heart disease.

What Has Caffeine.?
Coffee, black tea, green tea, chocolate, cola, kombucha, guarana, and yerba mate all have caffeine. Tea contains caffeine and theophylline. Chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine. Cola contains caffeine and theobromine. These are closely related compounds, called methylxanthine alkaloids. They are toxic addictive drugs.

Decaffeinated coffee and tea contain enough caffeine to cause tension and pain. Decaffeinated can be have almost as much caffeine as regular.

Erowid.org Caffeine is in tea, guarana, and yerba mate.
Caffeine is in: chai, kombucha, sodas, sports gels, energy drinks, and OTC pain drugs. Read labels.

Q: How much caffeine do you use.? A: Not that much.
When I ask massage therapy clients about their caffeine use, many people say: Not that much. This seems to mean Less than I assume it would take to cause pain. That's an assumption. Find out what effect caffeine has on your tension and pain. Stop using the drugs for a while.

Caffeine Disrupts Your Sleep
Even if you only have one cup first thing in the morning, your sleep quality that night is diminished. This is shown by EEG (Electro Encephalo Graph) readings in sleep labs. So you wake feeling less refreshed, and grab a cup. Then you get drowsy in the afternoon from lack of quality sleep the night before, and want another cup. It's a vicious cycle. You're addicted.
Caffeine reduces REM sleep (Rapid Eye Movement). This means less dreams, less chance for your deep mind to do emotional processing.
Caffeine reduces or eliminates the deepest sleep, Stage-4 sleep. This means less recovery from physical stress, less benefit from exercise, and less HGH (Human Growth Hormone) release.
Inability to descend fully into deep sleep is associated with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) and Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS), two painful conditions.

Caffeine and Emotional Tension
People who have quit caffeine tell me they have less anxiety, less anger, and feel less stressed. It may take a month or two for this to happen.

Caffeine may produce symptoms essentially indistinguishable from anxiety neurosis. Patients with symptoms of nervousness, irritability, headache, lethargy, insomnia, irregular heart rates, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea may be treated for anxiety neurosis when the problem could be resolved by restricting caffeine intake.

Get off caffeine.

Caffeine is Toxic
Your liver has to detoxify caffeine. That uses resources that your liver could be using to detoxify all the other toxic substances you're exposed to. A single dose of caffeine takes more than 24 hours to be eliminated from your body. Caffeine's half-life is said to be 3-7 hours; in that time, you will have detoxified and eliminated only half of the caffeine.
Why do plants produce caffeine.? Because it's toxic. Caffeine poisons the plant's predators.
Pure crystalline caffeine has killed people.

Women, Caffeine and Pain
Caffeine use is associated with higher incidence of PMS and FBD (fibrocystic breast disease), two painful conditions. Studies in which women have stayed off coffee for 6 months or more show improvement of FBD. When women have abstained from caffeine for shorter times, they haven't gotten relief, leading to claims that FBD isn't affected by caffeine. FBD is associated with PMS and anxiety; conditions that can be caused by caffeine.
