    Question Tension Headache / Aspartame Caffeine Withdrawal

    I recently gave up drinking caffeine a month ago, as I used to drink at least 2L of Diet Coke everyday until my body finally went into shock... (anxiety, vertigo, dizziness, light-headedness, etc.)

    However, unlike the last time I tried to quit, I am NOT experiencing migrain headaches or any other sort of symtoms associated w/ caffeine withdrawal. Instead, I have these bouts of severe anxiety, dizziness, and tension headaches that come and go in waves. Also walking around in a constant fog.

    I was wondering if anyone knows or has any idea why I don't have any of the common migraine headaches associated with caffeine withdrawal. Could I have damaged my brain w/ the aspartame & artificial sweetner? And will this ever go away? Any advice would be very much appreciated!
