...Then I went to a meeting this morning and the only drinks on offer were tea and coffee in flasks. No water and certainly no decaf.

Eventually I put a dribble of coffee in the bottom of a cup, topped up with milk and stirred in some sugar - to make a kind of milk shake. It's the first time I've knowingly consumed caffeine in a year, even if a small amount.

My throat started closing almost immediately. Hours later, after taking Singulair, my throat is still sore so I don't know whether it's the caffeine or flu.

Caffeine gives me acne, hives and completely disrupts my sleep patterns. I love tea but can't really drink anything but decaffeinated and even that has small amounts which could trigger an allergy response.
