    Sorry if this is off topic but this is something that has been bugging me for quite some time... :confused:

    2 years ago I could drink 8 cups of coffee just fine. Redlines, Redbulls, 5 hour energy, whatever, it didn't matter. If I drank it I had great energy for a few hours and didn't notice any side effects.

    Today it is a different story. One cup of coffee is going to give me a headache, mental fog, and nausea. About the most I can stand is a few cups of tea. Even supplements with high levels of B-vitamins are enough to send me in the wrong direction. Any clue on what could have changed to make me allergic or intolerant to stimulants?

    If I need testing what do you feel is the most important test to get done? Any guesses without testing?

    P.S. Had severe stress a year ago coupled with a crazy 2 hour a day p90x regimen. Burned me out so bad that it lowered my immune system and I got a chronic sinus infection. Doctored ordered a Medrol Dose Pack. It shut down my adrenal glands so bad that I was in bed a week after stopping only having took half the pack (no tapper). Is this related?

    sounds like a cortisol/COMT/catecholamine issue.
