Bad Reaction to
Artificial Sweetener

When artificial sweeteners came out I thought I was in heaven. "Sugar free" this and that...brilliant I could finally shift some excess weight. I bought a 6 pack of diet coke and drank 2 a day one at morning tea and again in the afternoon. By the third day I was experiencing severe stomach cramps, nausea, dry wretching, vertigo and tinnitus. I went to the doctor to ask what was going on and he asked me what I had done. I said I had 2 cans of diet coke and was sternly told not to take anymore.

After 3 days of having no consumption of artificial sweetener, the cramping and dizzy spells stopped. I went back to the doctor and told that I have no longer had any pain. I was then told to stay of any off the artificial sweeteners that are on the market and consume natural sugars/ sweeteners.
