Thanks everyone. I think I have figured it out! ASPARTAME!
Last Friday I went to a baseball game and drank a diet coke (which I don't usually drink). about a half hour later I was sitting in my seat starching my legs to a pulp.
Now today, two hours ago (at work), I drank a diet coke and the same thing happen. . . itching like crazy for about 45 mins!
I did not put two and two together until today, because as I said above I don't usually drink diet soft drinks. BUT, certain foods contain aspartame including several low fat/sugar free YOGURTS, like the one I started eating two months ago!!!!!!
Do you like the taste of Aspartame?
If I were to cheat (can't remember the last time I had a coke - my weakness is not sodas...but baked goods) - I would have a regular coke with sugar...I think you're better off with sugar than the Aspartame.
