I just wanted to tell you that I believe I have figured out what has been happening to me during the course of several months: I am a 49 year old mother of two children, happily married with a minimum of stress in my life. Several months ago I began to experience tingling in my hands and feet, which occasionally was quite painful. I also had headaches to which I attributed the use of caffeine as the culprit. I occasionally have a metallic taste in my mouth. I underwent an MRI fearing that I had MS. The neurologists ruled this out and have requested that I return if any symptoms resume.
Two nights ago I prepared and ate "Lipton Alfredo Noodles," a prepackaged processed food. Prior to going to sleep around 10 p.m. that night I had want felt like a sledge hammer hit me in the right side of the head. The tingling in the extremities returned and a violent headache were still with me in the morning and now 48 hours later are just beginning to subside. I knew that the type of headache I was experienceing was much like the ones I get with Chinese food (which I now avoid). I searched on the internet and found that the additive in the packaged food was called sodium caseinate and the information led me to you. I think that I might have to hire a nutritional counselor to guide me in dealing with this problem. I wondered if you have any other advise and what I might do for myself in the future. I'm displeased about this, as I have always been a healthy and strong person. Thanks for your assistance.

IF MSG ISN'T HARMFUL, WHY IS IT HIDDEN?
