Last evening, I had a run in with a food loaded with MSG, in all forms. In a cup of soup, you know the prepackaged type. Anyway sometimes I have to get a cheaper food to make it through paydays. Needless to say, I experienced a reaction from that cup of soup, that scared me to death. I started with heart palpitations, and my heart beating fast, a slight headache in my temples. I didn't realize what was going on and was almost on my way to a an ER, when I finally got it under control with a cup of chamomile tea, and trying to relax and stay calm. It scared me so bad, I was looking up all names of MSG that are in the ingredients on labels, holy cow, it was everywhere. In this particular soup, it had so many forms as well as it's original name it should have been called Cup of MSG! Any one else had this problem to the reaction from it? Back to eating clean as much as I can, but no more of these possibly deadly soups!
