Has my body built up an intolerance for coffee?

Asked by pleiades (6571points) January 17th, 2014 from iPhone

I used to have it in the morning before class and I had the darkest of dark. No sugar no nothing! (Excuse my Southern) but yes one day at work maybe a year ago now I was so sleepy at the restauraunt and the rush was happening and I needed a jolt. So I chugged about 2 glass fulls. All sorts of stuff happened, anxiety, felt like I was getting in fresh air, pretty much felt freaked out.

Now, am I just traumatized? Or is coffee a trigger for a freakout for me? I cant enjoy coffee anymore because of that day.

I read somewhere there is a protein in coffee that ones body could build up an intolerance for which I guess makes sense for me but I’d like to know more about it.

I had an acquaintance from school and her Doc told her to quit caffeine. She did for like a month. Now shes back on starbucks everything.
