    I have been doing great for the last month or two. That is, till today. Yesterday I made a potato dish that contained mushroom soup. I ate some for dinner and today for lunch. Sure enough my BP and pulse rate went up, I got a "sinus" headache and rib pain. The soup contained MSG. I remember reading somewhere that people with MCS have reactions when they consume MSG. I guess I'm one of them.

    Wow - at least you can identify the culrip.

    One of my doctors said that MSG is really damaging to brain cells - great, just what we need with the brain fog and all . . .

    MSG is only one of the culprits. But I consumed it on an empty stomach, which is making my symptoms worse. I can feel the damage it's doing to my brain as I'm sitting here. I'm eating watermelon to help detox. I've done a green salad, turmeric, supplements, collards, and a green machine drink. I'm gonna' take some benadryl at bedtime. It feels like I'm going to have a "cluster" headache, which is unbearable.
