Soda Much?


SodaI generally don’t drink soda, I prefer water, but somehow over the past few months I slipped back in to the habit of drinking diet soda every day. Now when a killer headache struck last night amidst my neck pain I started to panic and the first call I made this morning was to my chiropractor. My chiropractor was out sick today and while they offered the stand in I told them I’d wait until my appointment tomorrow. A few hours later I had lunch. With my lunch I popped open a bottle of diet Pepsi. I had made a conscious effort not to drink it the day before because my body doesn’t tolerate artificial sweeteners all that well and besides it’s just not good for me. Wouldn’t you know that not long after finishing that soda my headache disappeared. It appears my friends that I was going through caffeine withdrawal, the kind of caffeine withdrawal that feels like someone has slapped you around the head with a brick. So it now appears that I’m going to have to ween myself off caffeine and soda but this time I’m going sloooooowly because I don’t ever want that headache again!
