I get symptom with both those foods. I have to limit to one caffeine daily and no more. I also have to watch my sugar intake since it makes me feel horrible. But I find eating healthy and exercise helps my anxiety.

Too much Caffeine makes me feel very "unsettled" - which is the only way I know to describe it.  I limit myself to 2 cups of coffee a day and none after 9 AM.  I've found even if I have only 2 cups but still drink it after around 9 AM I still feel unsettled.  Don't know why.  After that its water or decafe herbal teat the rest of the day.

Sugar - man, don't get me started on sugar - lol.  Even a little makes me feel like my heart is going to jump out of my chest.  It really sets me off.  I do my best to avoid it completely.  The sugars I get occur naturally in fresh fruit.  Took me a LONG time - and a lot of panic attacks, and heart attack fears to figure this one out but now that I have I feel 10000% better for it.  Remember, sugar hides in places you don't think - pizza, breads, pasta, etc., pretty much all get treated like sugar once you eat them.

I can throw down on some sugar, but caffeine is an absolute no-no.  Even when my anxiety was dormant for a few years, more than a few sips of black coffee would throw me into a spin for hours.

I strictly limit caffeine. Decaf coffee only, and only a couple days per week. Pop only as a treat occasionally. it definitely makes my anxiety worse if I have too much or too frequently

Glad I'm not alone, I can't even have like more than 4 Oreos without it making me feel like garbage. Could also be I havnt had sugar and caffeine in over a year. ( like regularly)
