Caffiene headaches

I know you can get headaches and what not from caffiene withdrawl, but how about when you drink it? Its not like I don't drink alot of caffiene, I'll have a pop or two mixed with alcohol at night and once ever couple weeks I'll have a coffee in the mornings, but the last few times I've actually had just a pop, usually a fountian drink, I've gotten this weird lightheaded headache not really a headache feeling. I don't much know how to explain it. Could it be related to the pop, or just some weird coincidence.

    it could be a lot of things. Anything your body hasn't had in a while such as caffiene, sugar, etc and u introduce it to your system it has to work hard to break it down which can result in a headache. I stopped eting chesse after a life time of eating it after about 3 weeks when i had it again i was sick for a day and half. I get headaches each time i eat something with loads of sugar like cake. So because your body is not used to it breaks it down differently and you feel the results via a headache

    Bizarrely I never get headaches of Coke or other soft drinks but I get a horrible migrane style headache after strong coffee.

    I do sometimes get that lightheaded feeling if I've had too much caffeine and I'm tired. Not sure why it happens.

    i used to drink coffee, not a lot, maybe 1 cup a day and then suddenly when i drank it i started to get lightheaded and a funny feeling in my ears (sort of a cross between ringing and feeling like they need to pop). my sinuses would go a bit funny too. now i can't drink coffee :(

    I get a headache if I don't get my daily fix of caffiene or if I have too much.

    Could it be the alcohol?

    My ex used to get withdrawal headaches from caffeine if she didn't have enough tea. Crazy. Cutting down is the best idea!

    Have you switched from normal to diet?

    Artificial sweeteners are known to cause some people nasty headaches.

    But I get the headache when I drink the pop, not when I don't :p

    And no, not gone to the diet. Thanks though :) Is there something different of fountian drinks vs drinks in a can? Maybe thats it.

    you could always just not frink soda ..or pop as some call it. There is always tea and water which you should drink anyway.
