Evidences on The Link of Aspartame and Fibromyalgia
There is no existing study done to determine if aspartame can trigger fibromyalgia. However, a 2010 article published in the Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology, reported two different cases. These cases were reports on two individuals who had fibromyalgia and whose symptoms had vanished after they stopped consuming aspartame.
One of the cases follows a 50 year old woman who suffered from fibromyalgia for more than 10 years. She went on a vacation for several days without taking any aspartame. During her vacation, her fibromyalgia symptoms were nonexistent. Thereafter, she decided to totally remove aspartame from her diet. After which, she saw complete regression of all her fibro symptoms.
The other case followed a 43 year old man who shared similar experience. He saw complete regression of his fibro symptoms after he decided to stop taking aspartame.
