MSG Syndrome?

A few years back I overdosed on MSG (long story) and within a half hour I was losing consciousness, was dizzy, had severe chest pains and was struggling to breathe in anything more than slow shallow breaths. I had nearly forgotten about it 6 months later when the symptoms started back up. At this point I've had numerous tests (Heart, brain and lungs) to determine if what I'm experiencing is serious. Since I've noticed the triggers (salty foods, lack of hydration and being overheated) I can more or less live with not knowing exactly what it is and just chalking it up to MSG syndrome...except for one thing. At one point when I collapsed in a public place 911 was called. By the time they arrived I was more or less okay, but they did some blood tests anyway (came back fine, I think they only checked sugar, though). So they put a bandaid on the pinprick from the test, and within five minutes the blood is dripping down my arm. So they put another one over that. Same deal. It took four bandaids and an hour and a half to get that little pinprick to stop bleeding. 911 had no idea why it was happening, and it freaked me the ***l out. Should I be worried about this? I mean, yeah, this could just be MSG syndrome, but I've not heard of bleeding or clotting issues being associated with it. Does anyone have any similar experiences, or thoughts on it?

  • Don't know the relationship, but why not go to the doc and have some coagulation lab studies done? This could be potentially serious if you were ever involved in a major trauma.

  • I've had general blood work done (sugar, platelets, red blood cell count etc.) wouldn't that cover the coagulation? And I bleed normally when I'm not currently having one of the dizzy/collapsy episodes. So even if the test would be different it seems I would have to be lucky enough to be feeling that way while having the test. And come to think of it I know I had a general blood test done while I was about to collapse once, and it came back normal...and I didn't bleed too much, either. *shrugs* Maybe I was in shock or something at the time?

Does anyone have any similar experiences, or thoughts on it?Do you take pain killer?The MSG is a powerful excito-toxin. It goes directly to your brain and messes you up.NAET can help you become tolerant to MSG again so you don't have to deal with this situation again.It is like been attacked by wasps- and after recovering you become so allergic that one little wasp can kill you.So use NAET to reverse the MSG violent reaction, because those reactions can be deadly.As far as the bleeding, that shows that your blood is 'confused'...the way it won't clot and instead it starts splashing happens a lot to people who abuse or overuse pain killers.Visit a NAET.com doctor and don't worry, they don't have to use needles, given the situation.Please stop eating processed food, stop eating iodized salt, soda, splenda, etc and visit a NAET doctor.I had problems with clotting, and bad nearly deadly allergies- it's a miracle I am alive. Please think about this message.May God Bless,Mar.

  • Coagulation studies are not routine labs.
