This is interesting.....and may answer some questions thank you i thought others might stumble upon this too.
I was in the hospital this last week. First diagnosis was Stroke, then they decided it was MS. I found a Doctor at the Neurology Dept at the University of AZ. There are studies about MSG/Aspartame and how it relates to MS, ALS, Lou Gehrig's, Lupus, Autism, and CA. I have been hooked on Aspartame (in Diet drinks and Diet processed foods) for years. I believe that this is my link to MS. Aspartame converts to Methanol. Look up Methanol Poisoning and side effects of MSG. I don't want to be treated for MS (without the knowledge of Methanol Poisoning) which I will bring up to my Doctor next week. Good luck everyone. Be healthy and have a great Thanksgiving! RJ
PS - My symtoms: Ringing in ears, numbness face, balance problems, lot of falls and tripping, trouble swallowing, weakness/cramping in legs, memory problems, confusion, hard to recall words. I also have Diabetes which has its own set of health problems.
