Caffeine - who has noticed a difference without it?

I just quit caffeine 3 days ago cold turkey. I have read some of the posts about caffeine and thought I was also not one that drank a lot. I felt really horrible the first day, but was less dizzy yesterday - and also noticed I didn’t have the usual head pressure that I have had every day lately. I had a bad headache yesterday but I figured it was probably withdrawl. I also feel less dizzy today and still less head pressure like yesterday - still a bit spacy but am coming off a horrible 4 day long attack that started last Thursday so anything is better than that!

I am just curious who has felt much better without caffeine? I am also on propranolol and have been going to the Chiropractor for about 3 months now…I have found I have less classic migraines since I have been going to him, but not sure if it is making my dizziness worse as I haven’t noticed any relief on the dizziness front.

Hey Melissa, I notice that when I have coffee or dark chocolate (which I think also contains caffeine) but particularly coffee, I have worse MAV symptoms. Even just one cappuccino and I’m really messed up for the day in terms of dizziness and head pressure. Unfortunately, I was sleepy this morning and had a Starbucks cappuccino, so this is a worse MAV day for me even with the meds I’m on. I definitely need to quit caffeine! So hard to do though. Olivia

P.S. This is a relevant study that notes the importance of eliminating caffeine and then the drugs that might help MAV. I am still at stage 1 with needing to be strict with cutting caffeine out: Evaluation of the efficacy of caffeine cessation, nortriptyline, and topiramate therapy in vestibular migraine and complex dizziness of unknown etiology - PubMed
