A woman said she almost died after drinking iced coffee and tea.

The woman, Jane Puah, claimed to have suffered increased heartbeat, shortness of breath, numbness and stiffness in the face, hands and feet.

Puah posted her ordeal on social media and said she had drunk a cup of strong Vietnamese iced coffee for breakfast, followed by a cup of iced tea for lunch.

On the way home after lunch, she said her body began to feel wrong.

Puah claimed that her hands and feet became numb and stiff.

Puah added that she was also short of breath and feeling very nervous.

I have never had such a situation, so I immediately asked my husband to take me to the emergency room.

Jane Puah narrating her experience.

She said the medical staff took her blood pressure and performed an electrocardiogram.

According to her, the blood test results returned normal, and the doctor could not prescribe any medicine.

However, they reminded her to keep breathing in the abdomen and slow down her breathing, said Puah.

Puah Said Her Physical Condition Did Not Improve

The numbness, stiffness, and shortness of breath became more frequent and intense.

Puah added that she broke into a cold sweat and felt numbness extending to her head like she was about to have a stroke.

Her facial muscles also became stiff, and her lip muscles became uncontrollable.

Puah said she was very clear-headed then, but her body was out of control, and her mood was even more flustered.

I kept reminding myself not to close my eyes and to do abdominal breathing, but I always felt that I was dying, and for a moment I was close to a coma, and asked for water when I was conscious.

Jane Puah on how she tried to overcome the situation.

After being transferred to another hospital at night, the medical staff did a physical examination on her again, and the result was that everything was normal.

Still, she needed to stay in the hospital for observation.

By then, she had gotten better, went to the toilet, and urinated.

Puah believes she suffers from caffeine poisoning and reminds the public to be more careful based on her experience.

How Much Is Too Much?

Drinking coffee and tea in moderation is generally safe for most people and can even provide health benefits, such as improved cognitive function and reduced risk of certain diseases.

However, excessive consumption of caffeine-containing beverages can lead to some negative effects, including:

  1. Insomnia: Consuming too much caffeine, especially later in the day, can interfere with sleep and lead to insomnia.
  2. Heartburn: Coffee and tea can increase stomach acid production, which can cause heartburn or exacerbate existing acid reflux.
  3. Anxiety and jitters: Caffeine can cause increased heart rate, shaking, and feelings of nervousness or anxiety.
  4. Dehydration: Coffee and tea are diuretics, which can increase urine production and lead to dehydration if not consumed in moderation.
  5. Headaches: Some people may experience headaches or migraines due to consuming caffeine.

Overall, moderate consumption of coffee and tea is unlikely to cause sickness for most people.

However, individuals sensitive to caffeine or have underlying health conditions should monitor their intake and speak with a healthcare provider if they have concerns.
