I would never suggest your symptoms, or any reactions at all to MSG, were not real. That would be totally inappropriate.
In separate posts I stated that a small percentage of the population has a reaction to it. That was also clearly stated in the link I posted.
In another post, I made the statement that a portion of the reactions to MSG in Chinese restaurants several decades ago appeared to be a psychosomatic one.
