I am sorry that happened to you and I am glad you are not using it anymore. 
Aspartame has also been suspected as a negative factor for multiple 
sclerosis, (as well as other medical problems) when I was diagnosed I 
switched to Stevia, which is natural with hundreds of folds the sweetness of 
sugar, so it takes a lot less. I got mine on amazon.com but be careful to 
read all the reviews as not all products are built the same. You can also 
find zero to low calorie soda pops sweetened with Stevia at organic food
