I am so so happy to find you all. I really think MSG is what caused my problem..... Each time this has happened it was after I had eaten out (not everytime I east out) . I would, within a 1/2 hour to 2 hours get severe stomach pains....i can't even walk it is so painful.....then diarrea, flushing where my whole face and eyes turn beat red and hot, feels like my blood pressure is spiking in my head....then eventually blood in diarrea from the severity of it.....then its all gone...and i am exausted....only happens once in a while in my life but man....it is horrible...So I am now on a MSG hunt to eat healthy....so far for the last 2 months i have been eating healthy with no issues....
Welcome to the Forum!!!
The symptoms you mentioned are common for people who suffer from Excitotoxin Sensitivity Syndrome (ESS). Of course, these are only a few. Here is a list of symptoms
anyone can have after digesting MSG or Other Excitotoxins.
Now that you have found one of the causes for your symptoms - MSG - you're search for good health is still ongoing. There are over 100 ingredients which can effect MSG intolerant people. A list of these ingredients can be found HERE
. Because the food industry is constantly using new ingredients which are being invented at an increasing rate, this list may never be complete, but, this list provides enough ingredients to be avoided and create a healthy lifestyle.
If there are any questions you have about ingredients to avoid, please post them here at the Forum. Now that my husband, Mick, and I are not traveling we have DSL and our laptops, so now we can respond to everyone using all 10 digits of our hands rather than pecking with one finger on our smartphones.
Welcome again and I hope the Laminated Card we provided you has helped in your search for good health.
Keep up the good fight!!
