|"I love the taste! Since I started the South Beach Diet, I started drinking Fruit 2-Os like water. It has been four weeks and I have started to experience joint aches and fatigue--almost flu-like. It has been so bad that I had to go to bed for the day. My elbows and knees in particular are very achy.
When looking back last year, I had a similar experience when I was drinking the Fruit 2-Os. I had some suspicion so I stopped. When I did, I felt back to normal.
I remember wondering if there was a connection, but I dismissed it as being coincidental. After this last experience, I am now wondering if there is a connection between my symptoms and Splenda. Has anyone else experienced joint pain?"
