Hi,<br><br>
Will you please post your best MSG resources? especially those related to the brain/nervous system.<br><br>
There is a community talk in our town soon, and we can find very few scientific resources.<br><br>
Anecdotally, what does MSG do for you (if you want to share)?<br><br>
Thanks!

here's one by a neuro specialist:<br><br><a href="http://www.dorway.com/blayenn.html" target="_blank">http://www.dorway.com/blayenn.html</a><br><br>
He has a book written on the subject called <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills</span> (his name is Dr. Russel L. Blaylock, MD).<br><br>
What do excitotoxins do for me? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br><br>
apparently they throw my hormones off and cause me to gain fat. I've lost 90 pounds and regained even hormones since eliminating them! For my hubby they caused weight gain too, for my twins they dramatically exacerbated ADHD symptoms. I believe they contributed to the migraines I had for years too. Nasty little suckers!<br><br>
The following isn't scientific per se, but is something I've worked up on the topic and am struggling to get into better form on a personal website.<br><br><a href="http://forums.ovusoft.com/tm.asp?m=7475825&p=3&tmode=1" target="_blank">http://forums.ovusoft.com/tm.asp?m=7475825&p=3&tmode=1</a>

MSG gves me migraines adn scary synptoms. I unknowingly had some last summer adndI seriously felt like I was having a heart attack - massive chest pain, pain down my left arm, sweating, sense of doom, I forget what else - I was scared. I was on my way to school and wondered if I should pull into the hospital or the university.

MSG makes me feel like I have the hangover from hell. When I had my very first alcohol-induced hangover I had flashbacks of when I was little and I would lay on the couch wishing for a swift death the day after eating Chinese food. :puke I'm getting tummy rumbles just thinking about it.

Sounds like a panic attack. I have those too. I also have the messed up hormones and weight gain that someone else mentioned. I'm starting to wonder how many of my health problems were actually caused by MSG.
