Healthy Feedback

I was having quite a few of the symptoms listed as aspartame side-effects and most of them have gone away since I quit using aspartame. The biggest issues I had were: palpitations, tachycardia, shortness of breath, chest pain, recent high blood pressure, severe depression, insomnia, headaches, abdominal pain, gradual weight gain, fluid retention, leg swelling, and bloating.

I went to several doctors and had all kinds of tests, but they couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. They just kept giving me medications to alleviate the symptoms. I just happened to read an article about the side effects of aspartame and they had a link to this website. Once I stopped using aspartame (mostly in Diet Coke), my symptoms started to disappear after about a month. It's been 3 months since I cut out the aspartame. The first 3 days were awful because I literally went through withdrawals (maybe the caffeine?). I'm trying to wean myself off the blood pressure medication now and I haven't had to use the diuretics for the leg swelling in 2 months. I just want to say thank you for helping me start to get my health back. I'm now exercising and trying to eat better.
