    The shifts are evil there is no real pattern other that early mids or lates, i started tonight 5pm finished at 11.30 tommorow dont start till 7.30pm finish 3am next week start as early as 4am some days. its not much good for the body clock or social life whatever one of those is.

    I get reduced travel if im going further than london

    Why have you changed the coffee to decaff. You don't have to you can have either.

    Years ago we advised only decaff but as you have found the headaches from withdrawal can be awful coupled with carb withdrawal a complete nightmare.

    So CD said to have ordinary coffee.

    Unless you specifically want to cut out caffeine be gentle on yourself and drink normal coffee.

    I decided i was going to cut down on my coffee intake as i was drinking nothing else as part of the new healthier me, so i challnged myself to cut back to just 1 or 2 cups a day, think i have got over the withdrawl syptoms, only to have a stonking headache due to a bad tooth.
    A trip to the dentist is called for.

    No problems I just wondered if you had been advised to cut coffee out due to the caffeine.

    Ibrupofen is good for toothache as its an anti-inflamatory (you must have with food never on a empty stomach) you can take paracetamol at the same time as that is a painkiller.

    Also you can get oil of cloves from the chemist this numbs the gum.

    Caffeine is not good for you so cutting it out is good but when starting CD I think your body has enough to deal with adjusting to the carb withdrawal after a couple of weeks knock the caffeine on the head.

    Watch the tea though as tea has loads of caffeine in it.

    Off to the dentist asap.
