My girlfriend is hypoglycemic and has a caffeine addiction. She has been drinking way too much caffeine on a daily basis for a few years, and I believe it's beginning to catch up with her so I'm cutting her off and she hasn't had any caffeine for about 2 weeks now. She has been having extreme chest pains and occasionally random numbness in her body, and recently her left arm has been starting to hurt on occasion as well. Her chest pains have been happening for a few months or so, and how long they last ranges from just a minute or so to a few hours or so, sometimes longer. Even after cutting her off from all caffeine her pains are still continuing seemingly as they would otherwise without any sign of shortening or occurring less often. She can't afford to go see a doctor and I'm not sure what to do at this point. ANY help is greatly appreciated!
