I wasn't sure if there was another post about this floating around and I couldn't find one, so I figured I would post it here. I think I had a crazy reaction to MSG today? I wasn't sure if it was MSG or Sulfites, since I know both have possibly given me trouble in the past. Today was a quick rushed dinner of pierogies, baked beans and saurkraut. The saurkraut has sulfites in it - the beans have an MSG "derivative". Anyone else have any issues with this? My face turned so bright red, it felt like it was on fire. My heart started racing and I got very faint feeling, my blood pressure went up and my stomach hurt and I felt nauseous, then I felt like I couldn't breathe and my whole body became warm and I was shaking. This has happened on a few occassions (no I do not have anxiety/panic attacks regularly - when I do they are normally from my reactive hypoglycemia, but I ate so it wasn't caused by my blood sugar and my face doesn't normally turn red hot!) I am thinking of going back to the allergy doc to find out more about this because some things I will react to and some things I won't. Thanks.
