When I was having problems with SIBI but before the doctors knew what was wrong, I went entirely organic to see if it helped.
In the last few weeks I have reintroduced aspartame into my diet via robinsons squash and haribo sweets.
For the last few weeks, my insomnia has been hell.
Tonight I went over the top and ate a big bag of haribo. My insomnia is bad, I’m aching all over, I have a headache and I’ve now also been physically sick.
I think there’s a link.
I’m cutting out aspartame now to see if my insomnia gets better again.
I was off it long enough to know it wasn’t causing all of my symptoms, but it’s very possible it makes them worse. So for anyone with CFS or fibromyalgia or any illness really, I suggest cutting out aspartame to see if there’s an improvement.
