I've been getting this tingling feeling on the left side of my neck and armpit..i just recently stop drinking energy drinks, i drank them for over 2 y?

Hard to say: The stress involved in withdrawing from the stimulants might be causing muscle tightness in the neck and some pinched nerves. With your other conditions and risk factors, despite your young age, I might also want to be reassured by assuring that there was no evidence the symptoms might represent angina. That is symptoms associated with your heart not getting enough blood. An exam would help. ...Read more

Could drinking red bull or rockstar energy drinks have a negative side effect which could be kidney stones in men?

Could drinking red bull or rockstar energy drinks have a negative side effect which could be kidney stones in men?

Probably not: There are many active ingredients in engery drinks, but taurine, glucuronolactone, and caffeine are the main ones. None of these in a usual energy drink are going to be harmful if taken in moderation (not more than 2 per day). However, taurine can accumulate, although it is not an Amino Acid and therefore does not technical result in stone formation! ...Read more

What effects do guarana and taruine from energy drink have on the human body?

Caffeine ; calming: Guarana is a main source of caffeine in energy drinks, which is a natural stimulant.

My best guess is that because the first energy drinks had taurine all the others have it because people now expect energy drinks to have it!see comment:. ...Read more

I drank a rockstar energy drink four hours ago before skateboarding for three hours and i just took a nyquil and i want to know if im gonna die or not?
