What proof is there that aspertame effects fibromyalgia

 

Kim - August 21

I'm not sure if it affects FMS but if I even have a small bit, I get a migraine so I stay away from it.

Tx Kim, I don't seem to get headaches from it but I can't seem to find a lot of info on it.

I found this when i googled aspartame and fibromyalgia

A very small study by the University of Florida offers promise of a dietary treatment for the chronic fatigue and pain of Fibromyalgia. Four women who had had Fibromyalgia for years, plus allergies (such as allergic rhinitis and food allergies, for example), found that their Fibromyalgia symptoms were nearly gone within a few months of eliminating from their diets the widely used flavor enhancer MSG (monosodium glutamate) and the artificial sweetener aspartame. MSG and aspartame do not cause Fibromyalgia, explains a researcher, nor does eliminating those items work for patients who do not suffer from allergies. But for a disease that has no treatment, no known cause and as many as 6 million (mostly female) sufferers, it's worth a try.

I find when I drink or eat anything with aspertame my stomach gets upset and the irritable bowel is flared out. I also try to avoid it.

I have been using Aspertame for over 3 years. I just gave it up 4 days ago after doing some reading about it. I figure, it can't hurt. I guess I'll have to wait and see if not using it makes a difference.

I AM NEW TO THIS SITE AND MISTAKINGLY POSTE ABOUT THIS VERY ISSUE ON THE FORUM.i AM SURE THAT ASPARTAME CAUSED MY GETTING FIBRO TO BEGIN WITH, I USED TO LIVE ON THAT STUFF, ALSO I GET INTO A FLARE EVERYTIME I CONSUME MSG, UNFORTUNETELY IT TOOK ME YEARS TO REALISE THAT IT COMES UNDER TWENTY DIFFERENYT NAMES, CHECK OUT THE " NO MSG" SITE, IT IS AN EYE OPENER, THE FOOD MANUFACTRING BUSINESS HAS FOUND A WAY TO PUT NO MSG ON THEIR PRODUCT EVEN WHEN IT IS LOADED WITH IT BY USING ARTIFICIAL NATURAL FLAVOURS, AND MANY MORE
i FEEL THAT IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO COMPARE OUR DIETS AND MEDS AND SEE IF THERE IS A COMMON DENOMINATOR, THE SIDE EFFECTS OF SOME ULCER MEDS FOR EXAMPLE CAN CAUSE MUSCLE PAIN , SO CAN A LOT OF THE ANTIBIOTICS LIKE CIPRO , LEVAQUIN , SOME PEOPLE TOOK THESE DRUGSS MONTHS AGO AND ARE STILL SUFFERING, OR MAYBE VACCINES, I BELIEVE THAT UNLESS WE AS FIBRO SUFFERES PUT OUR HEADS TOGETHER AND TRY TO FIND WHAT WE ARE ALL DOING OR HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO THE MEDICAL ESTABLISMENT WILL NEVER FIND THE CAUSE AND KEEP DRUGGING US INSTEAD, ANYONE INTERESTED IN DISCUSSING THIS WITH ME , ME EMAIL IS .......[email protected]
