Hello, I am new to this site. I try to avoid msg typically, but the other night I had a can of Progresso vegetarian minestrone soup for suppper. I woke up the next morning, could barely see, my vision was so blurry and my eyes had so much pressure behind them. This made me start searching for a relationship between msg and visual problems and I came upon this site. I have had ocular migraines for about 20 years, very scary, sometimes a couple of times a month. Just hoped and prayed til they would go away in 20 minutes or so. I had no idea there was a relationship with msg and these migraines. I also have central sleep apnea, occuring sporadically. It makes me not want to go to bed, because it is so awful. I have just noticed connections on the posts here between this also, and msg. Many time I start to eat and soon have eye fatigue, inflamed feeling, weary, fuzzy vision, and know I can't eat any more of a particular food. This is the gauge I use for eating, can my eyes handle it or not?

MSG has been linked to Glaucoma and can cause high eye pressure. My family has a history of MSG sensitivity and Glaucoma.

I had high eye pressure for 25 years and although never was diagnosed with glaucoma, my doctors had me come in yearly to be checked. Currently, (after being on a no-MSG diet for 1 1/2 years) my pressure is the lowest it's been in 25 years, although I will probably still continue to be checked on a regular basis - just to be on the safe side.

susiet - I felt I was going to die after having Progresso's lentil soup. I get digestive reactions (severe d.) and can't sleep.
