Fibromyalgia mystery: If MSG and sweeteners stop, so do symptoms.

Back to Aspartame Articles


A very small study by the University of Florida offers promise of a dietary treatment for the chronic fatigue and pain of Fibromyalgia. Four women who had had Fibromyalgia for years, plus allergies (such as allergic rhinitis and food allergies, for example), found that their Fibromyalgia symptoms were nearly gone within a few months of eliminating from their diets the widely used flavor enhancer MSG (monosodium glutamate) and the artificial sweetener aspartame. MSG and aspartame do not cause Fibromyalgia, explains a researcher, nor does eliminating those items work for patients who do not suffer from allergies. But for a disease that has no treatment, no known cause and as many as 6 million (mostly female) sufferers, it's worth a try.
