Yes, it could be.: Caffeine withdrawal can last a up to two weeks and can begin 12 to 36 hours after you stop caffeine use. Symptoms can include nervousness, irritability, mood swings, feeling tired, headaches, poor concentration, nausea and vomiting.

May contribute: Caffeine withdrawal very well could be contributing but be aware, if your anxiety is that bad, there is likely something else contributing.
