  • List of hidden MSG

    As if MSG didn't make us worry enough.

    Oddly enough, found this when looking for a shampoo without fragrance or parabens, etc. as they irritate my skin and make my forehead break out.

    Wanted to post it, just in case.

      Thank you! I've dealt with food-triggered migraines for a decade and didn't know that MSG 'hides' under those names. Now that i'm on the IC diet, it's even more important!

      Allergies (Claritin)
      Anemia (iron supplement)
      Asthma (albuterol inhaler)
      Bilateral hearing loss (hearing aids)
      Chronic migraines (amitryptiline, midrin, special diet)
      Chronic rhinitis and sinusitis
      Endometriosis – stage IV (lapex surgery done by specialist 3/07; now pain- and symptom-free!)
      Other treatments tried: surgery, 13 birth controls, Lupron (poison! ), and Depot Provera (the worst thing my body’s ever gone through! )
      Interstitial Cystitis (Elmiron, Tramadol, Darvocet, IC diet)
      Knee problems (ballet-related injury – no diagnosis 10 years later)
      Scoliosis (>10 years of chiropractic treatment – none currently)
      Seizure (4/03)
