    It does for me. I've had to cut it out for the time being. caffeine is a stimulant. Because of that I am aware of my heart racing and I panic. I miss caffeine but I've been a little better without it

      I've never gotten a headache (that I can recall) but I've gotten the shakes sometimes from drinking too much coffee and my heart started racing. - not sure if this was actually the caffeine or due to hyperventilating but either way I haven't had it since. 

      You could just have a headache from stress or tension. Maybe take some pain killers to relieve your pain when you get a headache (if you haven't already) and I really hope that you feel better soon :-)

    I find the standard granulated instant coffee is ok but give me a real coffee and I'm flying! 

    I think that your thinking about it is what is triggering anxiety symptoms rather than the caffeine itself or likely to be a combination. 

    Have a go with de caff and see I couldn't taste the difference, a good cup of coffee is nice to have. Have you tried a nice mug of hot chocolate.... Bloody ace with some bicies especially at bed time. Pop a couple of drops of lavender oil on your pillow also.
