I totally stopped eating/drinking anything with it in it. I have not had any migraines since. That's been a few years now. Just some food for thought......
I went through something similar back around 2008. It got so bad that I'd easily spend a week in bed, unable to function. After I made the connection I remembered my father had similar issues with from eating low-calorie mints! I read all labels now and haven't had any migraines since.

I don't seem to have any reaction to any other non-nutritive sweeteners, and am losing weight just fine while occasionally having soda sweetened with either sucralose or stevia. I much prefer that over the roller-coaster that regular soda does to my blood sugar (I'm a former diabetic).
