Dizziness after drinking coffee

Hi dr, I am a 20 year old female. For these few months, I have noticed that everytime after I have consumed coffee, I’ve felt really dizzy to the point where I’ll suddenly lose my hearing on one side. The condition aggravates if I stand up, even if I do it slowly. I was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) back in 2016 but it has been cured with 2 ablations. Is there any explanation for this?

Thank you for your question,

Caffeine is well known for it’s stimulant effects on the brain, blood pressure and pulse rate, and the increased production of stomach acid. On the other hand, Drinking caffeine-containing products such as coffee or sodas may also contribute to dizziness in some people. Sensitivity to caffeine varies widely.
