Dear De Caff
The headaches you are currently experiencing may well be due to withdrawal of caffeine. However, if the headaches should persist for more than 10 days then it may be advisable to have a medical checkup to see if there are no other underlying causes (migraine, stress headaches, sinusitis, etc). Headaches that persist are always a warning symptom.
