I have carpal tunnel syndrome in my wrists and ulnar nerve damage in my elbows from a prior job. Caffeine effects the central nervous system and both of the physical damages I mentioned above are neurological.
And it was not the caffeine that made the weight gain, it was the calories in those drinks. I try to stay away from unnecessary calories from soda so I now drink a lot of water.
Sorry to hear that Cyber. I was beginning to wonder about the weight gain. It couldn't have come from caffeine as it gives an energy boost. But like Cyber, I have to limit my caffeine because it contributed to heart palpatations that put me in the hospital once. Good thing I went when I did because once they start you have 48 hours to live. I don't have a doctor restriction to caffeine, it is self induced restriction. When I do drink caffeine it's usually in coffee w/ sugar and cream.
