Do any of you know of any inpatient trial designed to determine whether headaches such as clusters and migraines exists in the absence of caffeine withdrawal? I'm not suggesting that caffeine withdrawal is or isn't responsible for clusterheadaches, but I would like an answer to the above question so I can eliminate caffeine once and for all from my own person list of theories. Next week I'm planning to eliminate all sources of caffeine from my diet, both the obvious and the hidden ingredients. I know I will experience withdrawal symptoms, I've caffeine fasted (if that is the phrase) in the past when circumstances meant that caffeine was not available for more than 24 hours, but I've always started to ingest caffeine when it became available. This time I intend to cut the caffeine and remain so for a lengthy period of time and note any effects. Anyone else tried this? And did they eliminate ALL sources of caffeine?
