Hi,

Trust me DM to be different. Yesterday evening and until around midnight Bron was very ill indeed with chest pains and being violently sick paying many visits to the bathroom; I was distressed to see Bron looking so ill. My first thoughts were to get an ambulance but keeping my head I asked a few questions as to what she had consumed differently to me because I felt fine?

Bron is on blood pressure tablets and also tablets to slow her heartbeat; I was aware Bron had the occasional mug of cappuccino coffee something I never touch but she was now having up to three mugs of cappuccino a day?

https://www.inc.com/sarah-kimmorley/19-horrible-things-that-can-happen-if-you-drink-too-much-caffeine.html

Neither of us fully understood this coffee could prove so dangerous; at around 6 o'clock I switched on the electric blanket and turned the radiator on full in the bedroom; I then filled an hot water bottle to give Bron a bit of comfort until the bedroom warmed up then she went to bed but with many trips to the bathroom. I ensured there was plenty of clean drinking water by the bedside. Next for me was to browse the web with my suspicions and I was alarmed by what I found regarding drinks containing caffeine.

Many years ago my hands started to shake and were getting worse; the job I was in was extremely stressful and I thought perhaps this was the cause me being the normal type of guy only visiting the surgery at gunpoint; one dinner time returning to work I had the car radio on and a doctor was discussing drinking tea; switching over to decaf tea completely cured me.

As I say I was aware Bron was drinking coffee but never noticed how much. Last night was so serious Bron will never drink coffee again because it really frightened her; around midnight she must have finally fallen asleep and this morning was well enough to get up for breakfast much to our relief. I'm pleased I didn't call the ambulance out and quickly found the cause of her problem; the caffeine must have been fighting Bron's medication but as I type she's now back to normal. :)

Although not a best food combination I thought it worth adding for information; it sure scared me.

Kind regards, Colin.

Hi,

What's wrong with a bit of bread and dripping? This was our diet as kids. We really knew how to live. :)

Kind regards, Colin.
Oh yes Colin - I couldn' t agree more ;) When we were kids, mum used to give us ''dip'' - bread dipped in bacon fat with a bit of salt on (a good Yorkshire delicacy) mmmm

Reading further Colin, thanks for the tip.... I`m on similar medication, maybe I should swap the coffee for a drop of Vodka :joyful:

I used to drink coffee all the time but started getting bad reactions so switched to tea.

Off to pour Tetters a Vodka now :giggle:

Thanks Gail; Bron says to thank you for your good wishes; strangely Bron said she feels better better this morning than she's felt for a long time which pleases Bron and cheers me no end.

You missed out workshop flavour? :D I'm intolerant of dairy products so have to be careful but now I' Soya powered I feel on top of the world.

I hope you too are having a better day today Gail. :love:

I feel mean in not replying to lots of posts but there aren't enough hours in a day; I already spend too much time at the keyboard so apologies to anyone who might think I'm not interested in what they have to say. I'm trying my best to keep up to speed on forums and emails but some days I run out of time.

Kind regards, Colin.

Hello Colin, tell Bron I am pleased things have settled down and to wrap up well :)

The work shop flavour as turned to either Toffe or Choc caramel plus lemsips….the irish one is like having a drop :oops:

Hubby used to have the soya milk then stopped but I find it sickly, I have 4 sweetners in my tea :rolleyes: and I have skimmed milk.

Same as yesterday Colin but it don't help with brains my other half having me by the window at night :censored: :LOL: i'm by the rad Colin and in view of the box in case there's something I see.

Both of you have a lovely night and wish Bron all the best :)
