    I don't drink coffee so idk if decaf iced coffee is a thing or not or if it tastes different but I totally recommend it! A lot of other Potsie folks I've seen and/or talked to have said that caffeine exacerbates their symptoms so I'm afraid it's a direct cause to effect here that can only be solved by cutting back your consumption, even if it's hard, unfair, and also sucks lol Everyone around me chugs caffeine to make it through college and I'm sitting here like, "My nervous system is messed up already, I don't need a drug to excite it even more" 😅 Anyways, I hope you feel better soon and can find some decaf options that satisfy your cravings!

    when i drink coffee, i use decaf. If not i get all the things you said, plus my BPM is usually at like 140 for hours, anxiety (which opens up a plethora of new symptoms) and more. like one cup of coffee for someone else is 10 for me :(
