Anyone else have this happen?
Never. You should get your heart checked.

Yes. I switched to decaf a while ago. That and caffeine free tea. I only drink caffeinated coffee once in a blue moon when I'm super tired.

I have always been fairly sensitive to caffeine but definitely found it has gotten worse.

There are more factors at play, like I associate smoking and coffee plus I have anxiety issues plus I tend to not eat breakfast so I'm always drink coffee on an empty stomach, but overall I've noticed that when I drink coffee nowadays, I have to be very careful.

I've been nicotine free for a couple months now? I think I posted in this thread about it.

This is not correct. Everyone has different sensitivity to stimulants.

However in the interest of better safe than sorry, sure talk to a doctor first if it makes you feel better.

I quit back in November, too. I get the shakes and all panicky after my morning coffee as well, but I’m almost certain that just coincides with the start of my work day

Ya, heart is fine, no worries there. It doesn't start racing or anything like that, just anxious energy and it really pisses me off.

Quit smoking, fine, I get it and more a less OK with that. Having to maybe give up coffee too? That makes me angry....

Guess I can try the decaf route or just think about eating something with coffee.

Just do half decaf / half regular and see if that helps. That's what I do.
