Hello!! I am a thyroid cancer survivor. I was diagnosed in Aug '07 and had my thyroid completely removed. Last October, I was hospitalized with having dry heaves for almost 2 weeks. It was terrible. Since then, I still get these spells with the dry heaves or I will get really sick where I feel like I am going to be sick. After lots of weeding things out, I have determined that my body can't tolerate caramel coloring. I am just wondering if anyone else gets these symptoms. If I have even had anything with this coloring, I get really sick where I have to take the chemo dissolving tabs and then it immediately goes away. I am to a point that I am looking for anyone who knows anything about this or has experienced this. Thanks so much

but you might want to get on myspace and look up the thyroid cancer support group on there. There are 700+ members and there is usually a decent amount of activity. So if no one on here replies or if you're looking for more info, maybe someone on there can help? My addy on there is www.myspace.com/sevencomeelevengirl I hope you find some answers!
