I have never heard that before I did however years ago hear that just maybe Aspartame could be one of causes contributing to Imune problems. I take all rumourswith a grain of salt and my coffee with aspartame. I am sure your friends are just meaning well. This is a hard disease for people to understand. Thanks for your well wishes and your input on pain killers I have found a local dentist who is well versed with M.S. related dental problems as are all his staff and will
be meeting with him on Tuesday Morning. Have a great Pain free Weekend Kiddo and Keep smiling .
