I was in high school when they first came out with aspartame. My father warned me about it then. He had heard that it could cause a lot of problems. Of course I didn't listen and did drink a lot of diet sodas in my lifetime. But now I drink water or tea. Rarely, I'll have a glass of Fresca. I have come to like water far better than anything else and nothing quenches my thirst like water, too.
I would just drink plenty of water and see what happens. You could possibly be somewhat dehydrated, too. Most of us don't drink the amount of water we should. Let us know how it goes and if it lessens your pain.
