to the Forum and thank you for posting your incident at Olive Garden on our Forum. Reactions to MSG and Other Excitotoxins can be tough. The reaction you encounter was a violent reaction which must be heard.
I looked up information concerning the ingredients in Cheese Ravioli, unfortunately I wasn't able to find what cheeses were used. Recently, there has been an influx of people reacting to dinners with cheese at Olive Garden. Cheese is normally safe, but as soon as a company, like Olive Garden, responds to cost, the cheeses used can be of low quality which are typically bi-products, and these bi-product cheeses will cause reactions in people with Excitotoxin Sensitivity Syndrome (ESS).
If you go back to Olive Garden, my suggestion would be to avoid the cheeses, even the parmesan cheese on the salad. Also, avoid anything breaded. I'm not talking about bread sticks, I'm talking about breaded chicken, pork, beef, fish, vegetables... anything. Then report back here with the results. Of course, the best way to avoid Excitotoxin-laced food is don't go back to Olive Garden ever again or any other establishment where you react.
Be sure to contact Olive Garden with a detailed account of your reaction if you haven't done so already. They have to be held accountable.
Keep up the good fight!!
