Decrease caffeine: Look at your diet and see if you are eating or drinking foods that contain caffeine. Some of the usual offenders: coffee, tea, chocolate, iced tea, soda/pop, energy drinks and powered drink mixes. Try decreasing your caffeine intake for 2 weeks. If the pain gets better, then caffeine is the problem. Vitamin e and evening primrose can be used to relieve pain as well.
