Unable To Sleep Until 3 Days After Drinking Coffee?
I want to ask, I rarely drink coffee but once I drink coffee I can’t sleep for 3 days doctor. Was it the effect of the coffee or was there another cause, doctor?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. When someone mentions that coffee consumption has an impact on sleeplessness, palpitations and so on, they actually mean the caffeine contained in it. Apart from coffee, caffeine is also present in different levels in chocolate and tea. Furthermore, coffee itself also has various types. There are black coffee, civet coffee, milk coffee, capuccino and so on which have different caffeine levels.
Although it is undeniable that it has health benefits, such as reducing the risk of diabetes, reducing the risk of depression, reducing the risk of liver disease and others, excessive consumption of caffeine can trigger health problems such as:
Heartbeat becomes fast and irregular
Interfere with the health of the fetus
The bones become porous and weak
Trigger insomnia or sleep disturbances
Makes irritability more easily
In your case, if you claim that you can't sleep for 3 days after consuming coffee, then it is most likely that it is influenced by coffee. Because there are many other sleep disorders that can cause a person to have difficulty sleeping, but it doesn't just happen occasionally when consuming coffee.
However, this is unnatural because the effects of coffee should not last in the body for up to 3 days. What we are worried about is that there is a problem with your kidneys' ability to filter blood or that you are also taking certain drugs that increase the impact of caffeine in the blood. Therefore you should get yourself checked out for further examination by a doctor. Your doctor will ask you what coffee you consume, how much, and if you believe that every time you drink coffee you experience this or just once. Then the doctor will continue with a physical examination, possibly a kidney function test to rule out kidney problems.
Meanwhile, avoid coffee until it is clear whether your condition is triggered by coffee or not, consume more mineral water, get adequate rest, consume nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit, and regular exercise. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
