Dear Dan:  Are you using NutraSweet which causes a prickly burning
sensation.  The phenylalanine (incidently genetically engineered) lowers
the seizure threshold of the brain and depletes serotonin. It has caused
an epidemic of manic depression.  

Could this be your problem?  If you're on aspartame and get off this
sensation will usually disappear in a few days.  It will take sometime for
the depression to leave but you should be much improved.

Check out the Mission Possible reports on the web page below and it will
connect you to 29 other links on the dangers of this deadly poison,
