Unhappy Glutamine woes

I started taking glutamine as part of new regime to build up my immune system and help with my other fibro like symptoms. I forgot that I took glutamine several years ago until I started getting a migraine yesterday. Unfortunately, I had already taken another dose. I took all of my supplements to my naturopath for her approval. I verified with her that she had prescribed glutamine to me back in 2003 and that I did get migraines from it.

So I checked today about whether glutamine is related to MSG. Indeed it is. I noticed that I get the same kind of migraine from glutamine that I get from Msg.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Glutamine, which is an amino acid, is chemically similar to MSG which is monosodium glutamate, but they are not the same substance.

Glutamate is also an amino acid and the two actually work together. They are chemically very similar. I guess thatís why I am sensitive to both glutamine and mono sodium glutamate. I found a scientific study of both that concluded that while these are naturally occurring substances that too much of either can trigger pain in certain people. They studied a number of conditions including migraines and chronic pain syndromes.

I didnít say that they were the same substance. I said that they were related.
