Here are the 2 important bits, but there's more at the link:
"To be diagnosed with caffeine withdrawal, a patient must experience at least three of five symptoms within 24 hours of stopping or reducing caffeine intake: headache, fatigue or drowsiness, depressed mood or irritability, difficulty concentrating, and flulike symptoms such as nausea or muscle pain."
"The symptoms, Dr. Budney stressed, must cause "clinically significant distress or impairment" that affects your functioning at work, home or in a social setting."
Doesn't this now mean anyone giving up coffee could potentially be eligible for disability? I have yet to meet anyone who worked full time and gave up caffiene without having at least one incident that would fall under "significant distress". If they were lucky, there wasn't a client or supervisor involved.Answer Question
