Topic: Losing weight after aspartame poisoning.
I stopped aspartame use last March after experiencing lupus, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, hyperthyroid (with hypothyroid symptoms) and fibromylagia like symptoms. Turns out I had aspartame poisoning. All of my symptoms subsided except for the weight gain after I quit using this stuff. I have had difficulty losing weight, even after being on a 1200 cal diet and exercising 4 times a week. But I have a question. I lost 5 lbs this past week....finally, BUT my restless leg syndrome and headaches are returning. Is there a chance this is from the byproducts of aspartame being stored in fat cells is being released into my system as the cells break down? That's about all I can think of. Any way to relieve it, the restless leg is unbearable at times. Thanks!
