Topic: How much aspartaime does it take to make one ill?
I started drinking diet coke and Fresca a few years ago after my Naturopath put me on a candida /gluten free diet . My health improved immensely as I no longer eat wheat and a few other products that I found out I was intolerant to.
I substituted beer for vodka and diet pop in order to control my sugar in take. I don't drink a lot of Vodka but I have been drinking a couple of liters of pop on the weekends.
I was doing fine until 3 months ago when I started to feel sick. I figured it was a cold/flu thing that would pass. Upset stomach and body aches..and my left ear has been ringing!~!!!! I went to my NP a few weeks ago , she thought I was run down and prescribed me with a whole list of vitamins to take. I started feeling better but now I'm slipping back again. My ear is killing me with the noise and I feel weak and fatigued just like I did a few years ago. My ear has been bothering me on and off since last spring, I had my thyroid checked and it is okay.
I also have an itch with no rash on my left arm every night, sometimes it feels like a burn.
Aspartaime! I hope was the cause. I just dumped my last bottle of Fresca down the drain ..drank a liter on Friday night.
..I am tired of feeling like garbage..I eat well and get regular exercise. I'm 45 and some days I feel like I'm 75..I want my life back!
