• Caffeine and MS

    Posted by Benjamin Hofmeister on February 8, 2024 at 9:00 am

    For most of my life, drinks containing caffeine have been part of my daily life. I’ve always been a little sensitive to this stimulant, but as long as I limited myself to no more than two cups of coffee in the morning I was fine. Lately, though, I’ve had to cut back almost entirely. I know some studies have shown that caffeine can help with MS fatigue, but it seems to make mine worse.

    What are your experiences with caffeine? Has anyone else found that it makes fatigue worse?

    It’s okay by me. I drink multiple cups of dark roast per day.

    Thanks Mike! That seems to be the majority concensus. Maybe if I didn’t have caffeine and then sit in my wheelchair doing nothing 🙂.

    I haven’t stopped, I just cut back to try and tailor the dose to my level of activity. Come to think of it, I never could have energy drinks like a lot of my teammates over seas did either.
