After eating something with a sugar substitute in a salad

Customer Question

After eating something with a sugar substitute in a salad dressing. I get a pin feeling on the back of my hands and arms. This is the second time I have gotten this feeling.
JA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: I have been exercising more than usual and I have eliminated most of my sugar and breads from my diet. Since I have done the pin syndrome popped up.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I take high blood pressure medication.

Avoid that substitute.

You clearly have a sensitivity or allergy to it.

Substitutes are not harmless, and despite what you hear, have not been adequately tested.

They do not digest, often, but in many cases your body treats them as a toxin.

Avoid all sweetners.
