Does drinking caffeine make you high strung and/or aggressive?
No, but if I miss my morning coffee I do find myself more moody.
Caffeine is a stimulant. It works on your central nervous system. In simple terms, it triggers the stress response of flight or fight, resulting in symptoms like pounding heart, shallow rapid breathing, dry mouth, sweaty palms. Some people who are more sensitive to caffeine can get quite shaky. I'm not surprised if high amounts of caffeine in your drinks make you feel high strung or even aggressive. A cup of strong coffee would do it in a sensitive individual, but for someone who's a habitual drinker, the effects may not be as noticeable. Of course, it does not mean that it's not doing any damage, just that the damage is going on under your radar.
Yes it does! I have a very occasional cup as a pick-me-up but its counterproductive as an hour or so later I feel even more tired and fraught. I love the taste of good coffee, but too much will bring on a migraine, so I don't drink much. I have two friends who both drink well in excess of 10 pints of coffee a DAY!
Studies show that it depends on the person. Everyone's tolerance to stimulants (caffeine) is different. If a person has a high intake of stimulants and not enough nutritious foods, one may become high strung or aggressive for sure.

I have decided I have to stop. I am so sad. I love coffee; the taste, the smell, how it makes me feel.But lately I've been having pains in my chest that go away when I don't drink coffee. So, I think I'll have to switch full time to tea. I bought some green tea yesterday and when I was drinking it...
