** After I had written this initial list of symptoms, and after I had recovered enough to be able to analyse what I had experienced while on aspartame, I realized that I was also having daily mini-seizures (that's the only way I know to describe them).  These have stopped completely since I have quite ingesting aspartame and MSG.
