Coffee! Coffee! Coffee! Are you aware that you're drinking too much coffee? Check the 5 signs you carry along with you.

1. Insomnia
Caffeine inhibits your ability to fall asleep. It inhibits the activity of Adenosine, which is one of your brain's natural tranquilizers. It puts you to sleep when levels are high enough. By inhibiting Adenosine activity.

2. Headaches
The combination of diuretic and stimulant pulsing through the body can cause the receptors in the brain to become overloaded, leading to a headache.

3. Hallucinations
An overdose of caffeine causes the body to become stressed resulting in hallucinations. This is a result of high adrenaline levels caused by increased levels of caffeine.

4. Increased Blood Pressure
Caffeine causes the adrenal glands to release more adrenaline, which increases the blood pressure.

5. Stomach Ulcers
Caffeine speeds up predigesting process, which may result in highly acidic stomach contents passing into the small intestine more rapidly than normal, causing injury or ulcers.
