Hello, in February my triad of symptoms was completed with the dreaded attack of vertigo. I have since stopped caffeine as recommended. The problem is that in October I will start, if this illness allows me, a Master's degree and as a student I have always needed a good cup of coffee to wake up or endure the fatigue while studying. I'm trying to find an alternative to coffee that will wake me up a bit or give me energy to study when sleep strikes. Does anyone know anything? Before someone says anything, I have already tried exercising before studying and honestly when I finish running my 20-30 minutes what I most want is a shower and relax. I think my body secretes hormones the reverse of normal humans.
