Topic: Aspartame and Vivid Nightmares
I was reading all of the posts on aspartame poisoning, but didn't find anything regarding my situation, so thought I would post this. Recently I have begun to have terrible, vivid nightmares that have been interfering with my sleep every night. They always happen about an hour after I have fallen asleep. I feel they are directly related to my aspartame use. As many of the posts I've read are related to aspartame's affect on the brain, I can see how these nightmares are probably related also. I know that I am highly addicted to this poison and that I also have other symptoms associated with the use of aspartame. However, these terrible nightmares have scared me into the reality that I must STOP before it gets worse. So that other readers are aware, my use of aspartame is through the "quit smoking lozenges" that are on the market. Although I quit smoking 5 years ago, I have continued to use these lozenges and now have become addicted in a way that is just as bad, if not worse than my addiction to nicotine. Since the idea of aspartame being contained in this kind of product is subtle, I wanted to post my story for others to be aware. I'm also wondering if anyone else has experienced this symptom of nightmares and if it is indeed, probably a symptom of aspartame poisoning?
