Do you always drink an espresso when you have a headache?

A good idea, because the caffeine it contains helps - if you don't exceed the following dose.

  • There are different types of headache - some have headaches when the weather changes *, others suffer from severe migraine attacks.

  • Drink a lot of water, put peppermint oil on your forehead or coffee with lemon juice: Many home remedies are said to work against the pain.

Coffee withdrawal makes you tired and can cause headaches if the usual daily ration is not taken.

This is the result of a US study.

It was investigated how a sudden stop of caffeine intake affects the body.

Test subjects who had taken caffeine capsules for a longer period of time showed clear reactions, as the pain clinic in Kiel informs:

The test subjects felt tired, exhausted and dull during withdrawal - and the caffeine withdrawal also led to headaches for many


The study directors attributed this to the increased blood flow in the brain and also to the increased so-called theta rhythms in the EEG image.

Caffeine constricts the blood vessels, which in the short term leads to faster blood flow and high blood pressure


At the same time, the oxygen supply in the cells increases, ”explains Hartmut Göbel, head of the Kiel Pain Clinic.

In this way, the caffeine found in coffee, cola, energy drinks and tea also inhibits headaches.

But there is one crux: “The problem with this is that the brain notices a constant dose of caffeine and gets used to it.

Therefore, the more caffeine is consumed, the less effective it is, ”says Göbel.
